Smog Vacuum Question

I cheated to get the smog vacuum through bb.showhiddenobjects but the game won't let my sim put it in his inventory. Is this item not allowed to be used for cheats?

    It might not be a playable object. I noticed some of the objects that you "cheat" for are strictly for show when I thought I could use a fireplace, but discovered that it didn't have any interactions with it.

    You need to make it smaller so that is fits on a sales table. Once it is on a sales table select clear table and the vacuum will go into your inventory.

    Yes. I did the same thing with my sim and worked just fine.

    Tried it and it worked. I never thought to do that. You're a genius!
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.
