Special tools

Your BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser Cyclonic Bagless Canister is not only a powerful carpet and rug vacuum cleaner, it’s also a versatile bare floor vacuum cleaner and above floor vacuum cleaner when you select one of the special tools.

Pet Tool Adapter:

The Pet Tool Adapter must be attached to the handle end of the flex hose to use the Pet Contour Tool and the Wide Pet TurboBrush. The narrow end of the adapter attaches to the handle end of the flex hose and the wide end of the adapter attaches to the pet tool of your

choice. The adapter should fit snugly to the hose and pet tool without using excessive force.

Pet Contour Tool:

Use to reach into corners and edges on stairs, as well as armrests and other curved surfaces. The tool can be flipped to use in any direction.

Wide Pet TurboBrush:

Use rotating brush action for small, flat areas such as cushions and beds.

Upholstery tool:

Use the upholstery tool to clean curtains, draperies, cushions and fabrics.

Dusting brush attachment:

Attach the dusting brush attachment to the upholstery tool to dust furniture, blinds, books, lamps, shelves and baseboards.

Crevice tool:

Use the crevice tool in tight, narrow spaces.

Pet Hair Eraser Floor Nozzle

Use to pick up pet hair from rugs and carpeted surfaces. Just vacuum like you normally would. The Pet Hair Lifter will grab pet hair when you pull back and it will release the hair and suction it up when you push forward.

NOTE: Turn the vacuum off before you flip up or flip down the Pet Hair Lifter.

Tip:

Before cleaning under low furniture, check area first for objects that might harm the unit or block the hose.

Tip:

Hair, string and small objects can block the hose and tools. Check them occasionally for obstructions.
