It may seem funny to write a review of a single part on vacuum cleaner, but Dydson have a special name in household appliances, they are widely regarded as the best and they have a reputation for quality.
The stair tool is essentially a spare part, some models of Dyson come with the part included, some, like mine, do not. However, I was fortunate enough that a friend was replacing her vacuum for a more portable one and she gave me this part to attach to mine. It's bog standard grey, like most Dyson attachments it's made of thick, sturdy plastic. There are no bristles or fabric on it to fray or fall off so it's likely to last a long time.
The part is attachable to most models of Dyson vacuum, and is designed to use on carpeted stairs. I would comment on how it performs on wooden stairs but we don't have them unfortunately. The part has a lip to fit over the edge of the stair which is incredibly handy for hoovering the edge of a step, it also fits snugly into the corner of the stair so that you can get the dust out of the awkward places.
That said, £9 is a lot to pay for one spare part that essentially just does a slightly better job of the brush attachment that all Dysons come with. While it is well made, sturdy and convenient I would probably baulk at paying that much for something that probably should be included as default with every model.
It's unlikely to break, but if it ever did I doubt I would pay to replace it.
