Answer: 
I "sprung" mine out, but there's not much contact area when you do so. I would recommend just not using them and getting large worm-screw style hose clamps, much easier to install and way better grip on the exhaust pipes can be achieved.

Answer: 
Use large sliplock pliers or adjustable wrench to lessen rigidness. Worked like a charm for me. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
The clamps are just like those spring grip exercise things from the 80s and about as useless. Though you can get them to work (sometimes with a little bleeding) I often skip them and just use zip strips. Can't reuse them but they are a lot easier to get in place.
Cheers,
Allan

Answer: 
Don't use them. Save yourself the hassle and buy a pair of screw on clamps (like the ones on the radiartor hoses on your car, but larger). HD sells them for @ $3.00 for a pair.

Answer: 
You have to grip them just right. I was able to loop my hand over the clamp so while squeezing with my thumb and index finger, the top of my hand was toward the clamp. That seemed to give me the right leverage,

Answer: 
HI there and thank you for your question.
This is George from our How To Community.
RK these clamps are suppose to be rigid and tight to provide secure connection in between pipe and dryer outlet.
I would suggest using long nose pliers or something of that nature to squeeze the ends of the clamp together.
If you are still having trouble with a wire clamp you can always use a an adjustable set screw

Answer: 
Hi Sarah, yes you can cut this to help you get the right length. However you might consider a more rigid dryer duct.
I would go into your local home depot to the plumbing dept. and take some measurements with you and maybe a picture on a phone if you have one.
This way the associate can advise you of the best solution.

It seems like only rigid dryer vents are allowed, but I can't tell if this one counts or not. Apparently the thin ones with plastics are not.

Hello Ti,
Thank you for your question on the GE 4 in. x 8 ft. Dryer Duct Model # PM8X73DS. Yes, it can be used.
UL now requires that all dryers be installed with either rigid or flexible metal ducting. Rigid is preferred. UL-listed foil dryer ducts are only allowed under very strict criteria.
The vent length charts found in the installation instructions have been updated, no semi-rigid or foil dryer ducts may be used in lengths greater than 8-feet.
The white flexible plastic ducts tend to contract over time where there is a curve and allow less than a 4" diameter at 90 degree turns. Lint tends to build up in these areas and has caused fires in some cases. Venting straight up through the roof is no longer acceptable. Plastic duct work is no longer approved for a safe installation.
GE now strongly recommends only rigid dryer ducts or UL-listed semi-rigid dryer ducts kit #WX08X10077. Any dryer ducts used must be UL-listed
I hope this helps!

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 86 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good The lady helpin me got me the best they had. I when with her . August 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Flexible dryer duct The dryer location I now have would have required several of the metal corners to successfully meet with the vent exit from the basement. This item did it all. The clamps included worked out well with a little trouble to get maximum opening. The material itself is easily torn putting it on if you aren't careful, but once in place it's fine. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dryer duct Product worked as designed. Would recommend this product August 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Flimsy and difficult to cut and attach Functional. There were two manual clamps included that were extremely hard to use without pliers. Flimsy foil like material that tore a couple of times when attempting to attach to vent openings in the wall and dryer itself. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hook up Works great and hooks up easy I was able to do it myself July 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Flimsy, went with semi-rigid per recommendation Most manufacturers recommend semi-rigid. Semi-rigid is harder to work with behind a dryer but it does provide the best airflow which is important. This flexible will work and will most likely not cause issues. However, the semi-rigid gives me more peace of mind. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by work in tight spaces Made a tight turn in a small area keeping dryer close to the wall June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A simple product that works! This is a good product. The box included two clamps. I thought the clamps could have been bigger. At full extension it barely opens wide enough. June 28, 2016
