Obviously, the "Donaldson" canister type has a lot more surface area and usually has a better sealing surface than the other types ( plus it mounts a little higher, outta the dust), but unless the unit came equipped with one, or you order one for it when new, there's not much you can do about it now.
It ain't rocket science! far.
