Third "Hand" for Changing Dust Bags
I used to dread emptying my dust collector bag, because it's hard to fit the bag back in place without it slipping off the rim at least a couple of times. What I needed was a third hand to help hold the back of the bag in place while I slid the rest of the cuff around the rim. I solved that problem with two wide strips of adhesive-backed Velcro® tape: one stuck to the metal rim and anotherto the mouth of the bag. A 1' length of tape should be all you need. Now, I just connect the Velcro first and pull the bag up and into place. It never slips off.
