Good quality
The screen that keeps rodents out gets clogged up with lint almost everyday. When the screen gets clogged up, the clothes won't dry so the woman in the house keep restarting the dryer when it's not the dryer (brand new) its the rodent screen. It wouldn't be so bad except its in a bad location to get it cleaned out.

Thank you for taking the time to review our product. The vent is designed with a damper that closes when not in use. The screen can be removed, however, it will lose some of its abilities to keep rodents out. everbiltbrand

Replaced a 4" original vent that was allowing a lot of cold air in. Since this is also 4" it does not fit over opening. The vent tubing that comes with it I could not use as the original vent tubing was cemented to the house (outside) and inside (under the drywall) by the developer's of the house. Old house 1973. So what I did was cut small triangles (8 total) along the lip of the actual Everbilt vent (removed the vent aluminum piping first). And then added light pressure to get it to fit on the already 4" opening on my home. The triangle cuts allows the plastic to open up slightly so that it can fit onto a 4" opening. Then I used construction adhesive to seal all around it. I added the adhesive first onto the inside of the vent. Then added more around the outside. Finished off with some outdoor calk. Works great and no air comes in any longer. Don't push too hard on it when trying to make it fit onto the opening as it's plastic and it will crack. Please see attached pic. Grey substance is the construction adhesive. If you zoom in you could see the 8 triangle cuts I made. Cut small triangles along the lip. I did 8 in total. Started with 4, pushed hard, couldn't get it on. Then did another 4 and it only required a light push. The gaps in the triangle cuts along the inside lip of the vent allow it to expand a bit. By having 8 its just enough to have it fit onto a 4" opening. You don't want to buy a reducer that goes from 4" to 3" as that could cause a fire since the opening is smaller to release the lint and heat. It will also cause your clothes to not dry as well as there is less of an opening to dry your clothes properly and release the air in the dryer. It's 4" for a reason.

This GE 4 in. Dryer Vent Kit with Hood is about what you should expect for the money it costs. The white hood is composed of three parts: the hood, flap, and grid. All three parts are made of some kind of plastic that will probably discolor and dry up as time goes on. If the vent is placed along a wall that has a southern exposure, it will dry up pretty quickly, but if it is placed along a northern wall, it will probably last 10 years. This vent is superior to the other type that has 3 different thin flaps that release upon air pressure because it only has one, more durable, flap. It has comes complete with a very thin mesh grid that is designed to keep critters out too. So, if you need a new dryer vent, I would definitely recommend the GE 4 in. Dryer Vent Kit with Hood, especially if you are cost conscious.

The dryer vent is a nice upgrade but I think there a couple of things from a homeowner perspective to be mindful off. First, this is a nice dryer vent, if the vent is not facing a heavy foot traffic area (e.g. gangway, side of the house), I can some kid hit the vent and since its plastic (BOOM, time for another vent). Great if you have the dryer on the second, not obstruction of any kind. Just might be difficult to clean I suppose. Second, the vent has a plastic screen to protect it from birds and other animals, which is removable (extra brown points) and make it easier to clean the vent. Third, the vent mechanics is a swinging door (see picture), which is just a flap. There is a little tiny hole to prevent the exhaust from backing up into the house, which is great (see picture). I am sure there are other dryer vents on the market but this one will do as long as you are mindful of the items mentioned above.

Simple but efficient. This unit has a well built flapper, with sufficient weight that it seats well, thus effectively blocking inflow of unwanted air. Unlike vent kits with external louvers, it is unlikely to allow lint build up over time. in addition, the aluminum extension tube is long and sturdy enough to be cut to any length needed. As a quick and easy upgrade, this dryer kit is more than worth the time and cost.

This inexpensive dryer vent kit can be used to replace the "cheap" one builders sometimes install for your home. It features a white plastic hood to help get the heat away from your house. The hood has a plastic screen that can be removed for cleaning when too much lint builds up. It pops out easily. The hood also features a round plastic flap which opens outwards during use by the force of the dryer air, and then closes when the dryer stops, and cannot be pushed inward. This prevents both unwanted air flow to/from your house but, more importantly, totally stops rodents, birds, etc. from attempting to nest in your dryer vent. It also stops insects from gaining access to your home. The hood is attached to an 11" aluminum tube via small pop rivets. The tube is 4" in diameter. If you have an existing dryer vent, you will need to replace the existing tube. Mine, unfortunately, was connected to the inner extension tube which I could not access. The builders are not necessarily supposed to attach the final dryer tube to the inner tube, but they did so in my case.The lesson learned here is to check that you can remove your existing tube before purchasing a replacement kit. So, I tried to pop the plastic hood part off the new tube to see if I could use just the hood with my existing tube. The plastic tube can, indeed, be popped off the aluminum tube which, by necessity, ruins the tube, but I was unable to use it anyway. I discovered that the inner square aluminum shield and plastic hood can be used by themselves if you need to.This gives this kit a little more functionality for different installation scenarios that might be encountered. The plastic hood would need to be taped to your existing dryer vent tube using dryer vent installation tape (which you can get from home depot, see store SKU 1002164176) if you decide to go this route. Otherwise, for most installations, this kit should work just fine. I did notice that the large label which covers the entire outward-facing part of the plastic hood does not come off cleanly. The label has a thin plastic "skin" which comes off easily enough; but the paper label underneath takes some effort to remove as it is glued onto the plastic The plastic hood may be painted to match your home's color scheme.

This dryer vent kit is made by Everbly. It is a very nice package, it contains the through the wall duct which is long enough to go through a brick wall or wooden structure. It is well made. The vent hood is plastic, and works very easily. It has a moving flapper which operates smoothly, and als has a detachable plastic screen, which snaps in and out for easy cleaning, while keeping out birds and small critters.

Everbilt Dryer Vent Hood 98253 is dor dryer or exhaust venting. It has an 11 inch tailpiece to reach through the wall. This one has a removable pest screen and has the damper that opens and closes securely and completely behind it. The screen come off easily so you can clean any lint that makes it down that far to make sure the door continues to close completely. Overall size is 4x16 and is made in the USA. You will need 4 fasteners and of course that depends on what you are installing it on. In my case I needed wood screws for the wood siding. Easy to install besides the 4 screws I caulked the base. It will last, my squirrel population has increased, my old one had no screen this provides piece of mind.
