Dust separators are a no-brainer for getting the most out of your shop vacuum dust collection system. If only they weren't so...well...''separated'' from the vacuum. That's where the Dust Right® Vacuum Harness can tie it all together. It consists of a central support bracket with straps on either side that wrap around both your vacuum and the Dust Right® Dust Separator (#45556, sold separately). Once secured together, you can roll the entire vac/separator combo around with far less chance of tipping, catching on obstacles, or tangling or detaching the various hoses.


  • Ties your vacuum and separator together for more stability and easier portability
  • Heavy-duty adjustable straps are long enough to accommodate most shop vacuums
  • Straps are height adjustable so you can determine where the strap will wrap, ensuring a tight fit
  • Quick-release buckles let you easily detach separator or vacuum for easy chip disposal
  • No-mar feet on bracket are adjustable to fit the specific contours of your vacuum
  • 3/4'' holes on top of bracket let you add 3/4'' dowels for shop-made accessories

I would say this is necessary for any mobile shop vac. Allows me to easily move the vac where it is needed.

No More Tipping over
I bought this to prevent my vacuum from tipping and it works great. Set up was a little hard with one person, duck tape solved that. a second pair of hands would have helped.
After setup. the straps around my dust separator kept slipping. Most likely because the surface was dusty. I should have cleaned it first. I went one further and permanently attached the bracket to the dust separator using four 3/4 inch sheet metal screws and fender washers. looks a lot neater now!
I definitely recommend this!

Woodworking Experience:
Easily couples shop vac and separator together to prevent both from tipping over.
The harness prevents the top heavy separator from tipping over when being pulled across the shop floor. This speeds up clean up and prevents potentially expensive damage to shop vac and separator. I have little room in my shop and now I can quickly move both units together without banging into anything or unit tip-over.

Worth the struggle
For me it was really hard to get the two piece straps put together and adjusted to the right length to hook the vacuum and dust separator together.. I almost gave up, but finally got it done. It works good and nice to have the two hooked together.

one of the internal nuts to attach the spacing bolts was damaged I luckily had the right size tap to clean the threads. The spacing bolt then work.

I had high hopes for this product but it falls short. When it works, I love it, but it comes apart during regular use and is just as annoying as the problem it is supposed to solve.

How much clearance doe this have in front of vacuum?
Danno on Oct 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You have a couple inches of clearance but because of tool rack on my Rigid vac I had to buy some 3 1/2" bolts from Home Depot to make it fit securely. Now it works great.
