spettro - The Seal Flaps create a stronger suction around the vacuum port.

THANK YOU. I was having difficulty understanding why I was sent the parts I was sent and how they would go on my cleaner. Turns out my old flaps were so short there was nothing left of the wide part with the holes so to me it looked nothing like the parts to fix it.

Thanks Danny. The replacement process is the same for my Pentair Pool Shark cleaner too, the GW7506 Seal Flap Kit. It was very simple, as you stated. I appreciated your guide and photos because the owner's manual does not discuss replacement of the seal flaps. Best regards, Gene B., 7/10/13.
