Product Overview

Finding ways to reduce home energy costs is a priority for every homeowner today. The Dryer Duct Lint Trap will help save you money as well as reduce the risk of dryer fire by keeping your dryer duct clean and free of lint. This product acts as a secondary lint trap for your electric clothes dryer. It installs easily onto your dryer transition duct and collects additional lint that is not captured by the standard dryer lint trap. This helps to eliminate unwanted and excess lint within the duct and reduces the risk of a dryer fire occurring. It also allows the air to pass through the duct more easily and without obstruction, saving energy by allowing your dryer to run more smoothly and efficiently. The clear door gives an unobstructed view of the lint screen which should be removed and cleaned after each load of laundry.

Questions & Answers

Can this be installed outside?

Asked by ra January 18, 2018

Answers

Lint can still attach in the vent pipe prior to the trap, so it is best to mount this trap as close to the dryer as possible.

Will this product fit between the studs in a wall?

Asked by Charliec August 17, 2017
5
Answers

yes it can be installed between studs but really the front of it does not come out of wall far enough. As door swings so will need to allow drywall to be cut a little away from box for it to swing, and pipe going down and up will be jammed against inside of wall.

Can this be installed horizontally? Or does it have to be installed vertically as shown?

Asked by Monk November 9, 2015

Answers

Thinking the same thing as NC, doesn't really make sense to add another restriction point in your system unless you are having a bigger issue. I was thinking to purchase this just as a access to clean out the ducts without taking things apart. Although you could install either horizontal of vertical if needed.

Why can't this item be used with a gas dryer?

Asked by GLC September 19, 2016

Answers

No, it is not rated to be absolutely leak free which would be necessary for a gas dryer that would have combustion gasses vented with the dryer air and lint.

can this be mounted in ceiling?

Asked by BMC June 15, 2016

Answers

Would not recommend since you need easy access to clean the lint trap before every dryer use, of course if you have easy access in the ceiling then there should not be a problem.

Attach it to your hose and it should do the job. I had the same problem and it worked for me.

How often does this need to be cleaned?

Asked by Korey July 24, 2020

Answers

We clean ours every second load. It's amazing how much the factory one in the dryer isn't catching.

What is the equivalent duct length reduction for this? If my max duct length is 30 ft what will this device reduce it?

Asked by Ee May 31, 2019

Answer

Hi EE, thanks for your interest in this product. The lint trap will not reduce your duct length. Once installed, it will become part of the duct. There are a couple YouTube videos on how to install this product. If you need additional information, please call 1-800-387-2578.

We have a vertical duct that goes about 9 feet up, and then out of the house through to the main duct outlet of the house. This is underneath the deck. With the critter guard installed we had to constantly clean the dryer screen under the deck. Even though it has 5 feet of clearance, it was still a pain. I got rid of my pesky flexible dryer duct and ran 4 inch smooth tubing and installed this lint catcher on the wall behind the dryer. It has been a life saver. We empty it every 2 loads. It is amazing how. Much lint that our dryer lint catcher misses even though it is emptied every load. I would absolutely recommend this product as an addition.

Would rate at 5 stars had the clear plastic door been better made. Outside of that I am very happy with this trap. The filter catches any lint that escapes my dryer and the see through door allows me to easily see inside my duct work and prevent lint build-up or a dryer fire.

Absolutely recommend.
Bought this to help with a poorly designed venting system in our new house. After cleaning out the existing pipe, we installed this, and it works wonderfully. Makes me feel much safer knowing that this trap grabs whatever makes it past the dryer filter!

Too Small
This worked great for a bout a week, maybe two. The problem we are having is the box is too small. This means the lint screen collects a lot of lint and gets filled quickly. This increases the pressure enough in the unit that the dryer pops open the door, letting all of the lint and warm moist air out into our house.
