Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SDDIY Oval-round adapter
The only usable part is the oval-round adapter. The box is too cheep to consider installing. I then bought the metal box to use this adapter in. The adapter quality seemed to poor for permanent installation. So I returned both kits and decided to go with a more typical and, I think, more high quality installation.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bluejeansesp Horrible quality and packaging.
I am renovating my basement and relocating the dryer and associated vent. I picked this product up on my way home from work to wrap up my wall rough in's in preparation for drywall. When I pulled it out of the packaging, 2 of the straps were missing. They are loosely packaged and 3 of the other one's I saw in the store were also missing straps, which is why I picked this one.
The top side adapter is to be removed so that you can connect the flex line from your dryer and then re-connect into the box and the hard duct in the wall. First, if you remove it, your hard duct will not be secured and if the wall has already been covered, you will be tearing out drywall to reconnect it. Luckily, my wall was not yet hung out. Secondly, when I tried to snap the adapter back in place, it wouldn't snap. The adapter is so flimsy, that it broke when I pulled it loose to connect my flex. DON"T BUY THIS PRODUCT. IT IS CHEAP AND YOU WILL HAVE TO GET ANOTHER ONE!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Meagan WORST PRODUCT EVER- DO NOT BUY
This product is so poorly designed and manufactured it is unbelievable. I now have a giant hole in my wall and no way to use this terrible product. The duct portion is held onto the box with two tiny tabs that break immediately when you attempt to attach the ductwork. They are not meant to break and it is unusable if they do, the quality of this item is shockingly pathetic.

For those having problems attaching straps:
1. Lay it on it's back
2. Take a strap, get it lined up with the notch and give i light taps and slowly drive it in, the weight of the hammer should almost be sufficient to gently guide it in.
Pros: Dresses the room up
1. Mine came with only two straps...
2. Flimsy as others have stated - too flimsy for my taste.
3. While the oval recessed vent is nice, you have to find an elbow or something to go in your wall if you need to go around the top plate of a wall.. GLHF with that.
4. The collar for mounting the duct to is mounted separately and can leak if the box is mounted with a small angle to the duct - sealing the duct to the box with tape is a MUST to prevent air leaking behind your wall.

Do not buy this recessed dryer vent box by EVERBILT. I should of took notice before purchasing, but when you mount the box the outlet for the dryer vent sticks out of the wall almost an inch. This is supposed to be recessed in the wall cavity. The box should be made almost an inch deeper (and it would still fit in a 2x4 wall cavity). You can't even mount the box deeper in the wall by your own means because the mounting brackets supplied also support the trim ring; and if you cut the bracket arms and leave the clips on you could mount the box deep enough, but the trim ring clips wouldn't reach. This is total garage. Now i'm gonna have to rig it in the wall and glue the trim ring to the drywall. I'd take it back if i still had my receipt and the nearest Home Depot wasn't so far away from where I live.

Many negative reviews on this being flimsy and the dammed stud brackets that are impossible to attach, and still no improvement from the manufacturer or Home Depot,would've given no stars if possible, do the extra legwork and find and buy a quality metal one and paint it

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ctoddg Poor quality product
The attachment straps required filing of the inside of the band in order to get them to attach. Poor quality and the locking mechanism of the strap to the box was difficult to attach the steals even after I filed them down.

Don't recommend this product it is very flimsy. There is no way to connect your flexible duct from your dryer short of using duct tape and I've had trouble with the built in draft flapper sticking shut
