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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The attaching connector is a 4" diameter circle. with high of approximately 1.25 ".
Yes, clear plastic measuring 4.5" x 4 5/8".
We clean ours every second load. It's amazing how much the factory one in the dryer isn't catching.
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.
