Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shinypenny 8 Foot Semi-Rigid Dryer Duct
I needed to replace another rigid dryer duct that was on my dryer because of lint build up when my dryer was taking longer than usual to dry, and I was assuming it wasn't getting adequate air flow out of the vent, which is usually the case. After I removed it, it did have quite a bit of lint build up, so I wanted to replace it for fire prevention and safety reasons.
It's fairly easy to replace. To keep from bending the tube and damaging it, it's best to have someone else stand on the other end and help you stretch it out all the way. I needed the full 8 feet to reach my vent outlet. Shorter sizes are available if needed. I've read that you really shouldn't have excess bends or an overly long duct for the best operation and safety.
It was kind of a tight fit to attach the duct to my dryer, so I also purchased a 90 degree crimped elbow and attached it to the dryer with a band clamp, so the install was much easier, and will be much easier to install a new dryer duct in the future when this one needs to be replaced or cleaned. They're relatively cheap to replace, so I usually just replace them rather than go to the trouble to try to clean them.
It's much sturdier than the cheaper foil vents, which can get holes in them relatively easy, if the dryer is ever moved, so it lasts longer.

I want to know how to get it to 8 feet without crimping it or bending it. Poor construction, design whatever.

Very nice and spacious. I bought this refrigerator for my parents and they really love it, the only problem my mother had was that she thought it came with a light in the freezer, but other than that it's a very nice product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JnDRader Well, it works.
Not as flexible as I was hoping. And, it recommends not cutting it to size yet they didn't offer shorter sizes in the store. Was in a rush to get the dryer up and running in our new home so I purchased this since it was all that was available. Bends easily, dents easily, way too long for what I really needed. Will likely have to switch out at some point. So, useful in a pinch but there is surely something better out there.
