AeroVac Comb Bin Door Mod

I just came across this upgrade for the AeroVac bins. I haven't seen it discussed here, so I wanted to share it with you all:

I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like a great idea. My only gripe about the AeroVac CHM is the tendency for the brush to get clogged with hair, pet fur, and other fibers. Hopefully this part, which is a hair-catching toothed replacement for the standard bin door, partially alleviates that problem.

Note that it does not comb the brush itself. I have to still clean the brush, but the comb catches some of the longer stuff.

Thanks for replying--it's good to hear from someone that has one! I didn't expect it to remove all hair from the brush, but I hoped it would do exactly what you described.

I have a 9xx series Roomba with the AeroForce system now--which I love--but this part would've been useful for my 530 when it was on house cleaning duty. I'm thinking about retiring the 530 to the garage/shop, which doesn't have so much hair/fur.
