This vent is superb quality and easy to install. Replaced an original aluminum vent that was hit many times over the years by the lawnmower handle. This one mounts flush with the house and hitting it will be nearly impossible. Testing proved the opening and the magnetic closure operations work as designed for the dryer exhaust. Highly recommended unit for appliance exhaust.

Best Vent Ever
Having gone through three plastic vents over the years, it was time for a metal vent, and this one is the way to go. Nicely constructed and installed easily, (two people could have done it even quicker), but did entail a couple of trips into the house crawl space. I did use metal duct tape privileged the vent collar to smooth out the transition from the vent pipe to the round collar. I thought that might prevent some lint build up.
This dryer vent is extremely well made and simple to install. Fits a 4" vent pipe perfectly and should last a lifetime. So much better than the normal dryer vent and the smooth design should not accumulate lint.
Our previous vent worked well until UV light deteriorated the plastic and it literally fell apart. So, I studied a host of vents before selecting this one. It is simple and it works. It is all metal so I expect it to work for a long time. The flap is inset about a half inch so it should not be accessible to birds.
WOW, Great Vent Cover
This cover is far superior to the stuff on the shelf. Its strong metal, not thin. Sleek and will be perfect. Good finish too. I ordered it yesterday and got it today! Super fast shipping.
