Rated 5 out of 5Â by SanDiegosink Sturdy and easy to install
Bought this to go along with a new dryer. In the past I've fought with the flexible duct ends trying to get them to fit over the fitting on the dryer and the wall and keep the duct from getting crushed when the dryer gets pushed back against the wall. I bought this item hoping those problems would go away. Success! Super easy to install onto the dryer and the wall fittings. The fitting on the wall wasn't quite round so it required a bit of massaging to allow the elbow from the duct to slide on - once the wall fitting was round again installation was a snap. The way the elbows bend they protect the duct from getting crushed either from being smashed against the wall or having too sharp of a bend - they duct flows great and is very quiet.
I bought some extra clamps that were easier to install than the ones supplied in the box. The ones in the box will likely work fine but the ones I bought have a socket attachment for tightening and I like them better. The unit is a bit more expensive than a simple duct with a few clamps but the quality is great and makes install just a bit easier. I'm sure it'll last the duration.

This company ONLY mails one elbow in this package!
I had to order another whole kit just to complete the job.
The picture shows 2 elbows and states plural elbows. False advertising this is. Spent over an hour on phone about the two kits. What a run around i Got!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Rooster all parts do not come with vent .
IT says on the box that it comes with two 90's,it does not,so you have to go back to the store and get another 90.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by HandyGuy205 Not as described, but still great
I bought this new in a factory sealed box. There was only one elbow NOT two as depicted. Luckily my dryer exhaust is horizontal and not vertical. Two clamps were included. The screw clamps are much faster to install than lesser spring clamps.
The elbow and semi-rigid vent ducting is constructed of very thick aluminum. It holds bends well and resists denting and kinking very well.
