Experience a Smarter, Healthier Way to Clean Your Home with Hide-A-Hose Retractable Hose System for central vacuums. This groundbreaking innovation simplifies cleaning tasks, elevating user experience to new heights. Just PULL, VACUUM, then RETRACT, and see how vacuuming transforms into a seamless and efficient process.

Hide-A-Hose - Pull


Hide-A-Hose - Vacuum


Hide-A-Hose - Retract


A lightweight hose is stored in the piping behind each port. Simply open the door, pull out the hose (up to 60 ft), engage the lock and attach the cleaning tool of your choice, turn it on, and begin cleaning your entire house.

 When you’re finished, disconnect the handle, disengage the lock, and watch the suction from the vacuum power unit retract the hose back into the wall. The retractable hose travels freely through the tubing inside the well that is connected to the central vacuum power unit. No more carrying a hose from inlet to inlet. A clean house is that simple!


Hide-A-Hose Retractable Systems are retractable. The hose is stored in the central vacuum tubing in the wall. Not in your closet. Pull. Vacuum. Retract. That’s smart.

 Hide-A-Hose Retractable Systems are versatile. Pick an attachment and vacuum carpet, tile, hardwood, stairs, windowsills, baseboards, upholstery, curtains, cupboards, fans, lint traps, mattresses, pet beds, cobwebs, over, under, down low, up high. That’s smart. 

Hide-A-Hose Retractable Systems are quiet. The central vacuum power unit is installed in the garage or mechanical room. The noise is away from your living space. That’s smart. 

Hide-A-Hose Retractable Systems add value. Invest in your home with a central vacuum system that has a life expectancy of 20+ year, keeping broken-down portables out of the landfill. That’s smart. 

Hide-A-Hose - Smart Solution


Hide-A-Hose Retractable Systems are healthy. Dirt is removed through the central vacuum piping in the wall, not stirred up and recirculated in the air. No more drifting particles, no more vacuum smell, giving your allergies a break. That’s healthy.

Hide-A-Hose Retractable Systems are powerful. Central vacuum power units are up to 5 times more powerful than portable vacuums. More power. Less dirt. That’s healthy.


The Hide-A-Hose system can be installed in most homes when there is access to an attic or crawl space. Your local authorized dealer can visit your home to review installation options.

Sometimes.  The Hide-A-Hose retractable hose system stores the hose in the PVC tubing using special sweep 90's and 45's.  Available attic or crawl space can be used to add these pipe runs, which could then be connected to your existing system. Your local authorized dealer would also evaluate your power unit and tools for use with the Hide-A-Hose system.

With the Hide-A-Hose System, a 30', 40', 50,or 60' hose can be used. Longer hoses allow the number of inlets to be reduced, often by half (a 50' hose will reach up to 2200 square feet). Fewer inlets will save time and make vacuuming more convenient.

We offer two types of hoses. The RapidFlex™ hose was designed for Hide-A-Hose to be used without a cloth cover (hose sock). We also offer a SmartSoc ™ hose that has the hose sock installed.  Both hoses have been designed to work specifically with the Hide-A-Hose system. We cannot guarantee the system will work properly with the use of other hose brands.

Hose socks do pick up dirt from floors while vacuuming.  However, with a Hide-A-Hose system the sock actually stays cleaner than a hose sock with a standard central vac system.  When the power unit is turned on, the suction in the vacuum tubing removes much of the dust and debris from the sock.  A hose stored in a closet does not have this advantage.  Also, because there is no wiring in the hose, it is washable: remove the hose (with sock) from the inlet, wash, dry, and retract back into the inlet.

The system can be turned on and off with a low voltage switch at each inlet.  Hide-A-Hose also offers the option of a wireless handle.  With a RF Ready Grip handle, turn your system on or off with the flip of a switch where you stand.

There are 2 types of power brushes used with Central Vacuum Systems – turbine and electric.  Hide-A-Hose offers both: Turbocat and TK 284 Turbine Powerheads, or the CX1000 Battery Power Head and KX1000 Battery Power Head. The choice is yours.
