This DLC-7 & DLC-8 expanded sleeve assembly fits inside the chute on a workbowl cover to guide food towards the cutting disc of your choice. It is composed of two pieces of clear plastic that fit inside of each other (they cannot be separated; they expand much like a telescope) with an opaque white 'locking tab' and two clear prongs extending from the side, which fit into the workbowl cover to engage the motor.
This part works with both the 2nd generation DLC-7 and DLC-8 workbowl covers.
This sleeve does work with the3rd generation DLC-8 Tritan Workbowl Cover.
Due to recent changes in DLC-7 parts, this sleeve does not work with DFP-14 workbowl covers. See note below.
The small white pusher, which fits inside of this part and helps to push food towards the cutting disc, is sold separately.

IF YOU HAVE A DLC-8: If you are trying to replace a sleeve that does NOT have 2 prongs extending from the side, you must purchase all 4 primary parts to use on your machine. These parts are available together in the DLC-8 4-Piece Tritan Bowl Kit.
