The Lint Trap Kit is extremely easy to install. It keeps the house warm in the winter and extremely hot in the summer. It does capture 80% of the lint, however, there's the 20% that is on your walls, cabinets curtains and whereever else lint can accumulate. The problem lies with the vents at the top...It allows lint to escape and travel. Prior to this Lint Trap, I had a Twizzler container with a red lid for which my dad made an opening in the top to fit the hose. The hose came from the back of the dryer into the lid of Twizzler container filled with water. No lint, no anything. You just had to keep the container filled with water as you do this one. The only reason I switched from the homemade contraption, is because I wanted something a little more sophisticated. It has been 3 years of fighting lint. I'm done. Going to try something else.

I just moved into a new home and did not feel like putting a whole in the wall of my basement for a dryer vent. I saw this product and it was not expensive and came with everything you need to hook it up. It does exactly what is says it’s supposed to do; it collects the lint in water then shoots out the air. What I like most about it is that it shoots the hot are back into my basement so in the winter time it will also help heat my house. Not that I will be running my dryer all the time but every little be of efficiency helps these days. The only downside I would say is it is somewhat cheaply made but it works and it is not expensive. You get what you pay for; the only thing is with this product it seems to pay you back in the winter.

Haven't had trouble yet only problem is hose included is very short impractical for use ( maybe stretch to 3 ft) being a "remote" product like it is the hose will contract and spill water or have to be placed very close to machine . Save a second trip and get hose while at store.

I was skeptical, but for the price it was worth a shot. The whole set up is cheaply made. Installation in my application wasn't too tough.
does it do the job? for me, better than expected. I used to have tons of blue lint in my garage (that's where my dryer vents, into my garage). After a couple of months, I still don't see it clinging to every thing in the garage. I do, however, have to clean out all the lint trapped in this before I start my laundry day at home.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pud7 This product is not a one-size-fits-all
They used too little material and the flexible hose is not quite big enough to go around the dryer vent hole and hardly attaches to the manufacturer's trap box. The plastic strapping can't attach the hose to the vent hole. I used duct tape and that comes loose after a load or two because the moisture gets to the sticky side of the tape.
Product might have been useful if only they did not cut back too much on the diameter of the hose.

Save the receipt. The trap is cheap and the vent hose is even cheaper and way to short.
