Which Shark accessories should I use?

There’s nothing like a Shark clean – combining powerful suction with clever technologies, our vacuum cleaners make it easy to achieve amazing results all around your home. But which Shark accessories should you use with your vacuum cleaner, and where should you use them?

Here’s a handy guide to making the most of your Shark – using the attachments that come in the box and additional tools which can be purchased directly from our website.


In the box:

The attachments included with your Shark vacuum cleaner will vary depending on which model you have chosen. Here’s a run-down of the best way to use the tools you are likely to already have…

  • Crevice Tool

This must-have attachment is perfect for getting into corners and small spaces, giving you extra reach with a precision end – perfect for vacuuming car seats, down the side of sofa cushions, skirting boards and more. You may have a combination Duster/Crevice Tool – if so, you can slide the Dusting Brush to the end of the crevice tool to easily remove dust with the soft bristles.

  • Upholstery Tool

Designed to remove dust and lint from upholstery, this wide, flat tool is perfect for refreshing sofas, curtains, cushions, car seats and more.

  • Pet Tool

Easily removing embedded hair from stairs, sofas, rugs and upholstery with a bristle brush-roll, this tool is included with all Shark TruePet vacuum cleaners and is also available to buy separately.
