    Heres my DIY filter sock holder. I used a 90mm to 75mm reducing bush and a 90mm wide piece of pvc which I heat bent. I used a 75mm hole saw to make the hole on the pvc and stuck the reducing bush over the hole.

    Once the sock is in place and overlaps the reducing bush a short piece of 75mm pipe will be used to keep the sock in place, (i will make it "C" shaped if its too tight) aternatively a rubberband can be used.
