Product Description

The Problem: A clothes dryer is normally constructed with an internal lint screen that is cleaned after each new dryer load. This internal lint screen does not catch all generated lint but the excess will be dispersed into the duct and eventually create a fire hazard. The Solution: The solution is to use a secondary lint trap to catch all the lint being dispersed. This will prevent lint buildup in the duct and if a dryer booster fan is being used, save the lifespan of that fan. Lint Trap has new lid with TURN KEY LID LOCK! DISCLAIMER: NOT RECOMMENDED TO BE USED WITH GAS DRYERS. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL BUILDING CODE BEFORE INSTALLATION. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DO A THOROUGH CLEANING OF YOUR DUCT AND EXHAUST FITTING (GOOSE NECK/SCREEN) BEFORE INSTALLING THE LINT TRAP. IF THE DUCT IS NOT CLEAN AND RESTRICTING AIRFLOW, THE LID ON THE LINT TRAP WILL LEAK AIR AND LID MAY DISLODGE.

Customer Reviews

Very poor design.
J. Martin
It is amazing the amount of lint it traps from being stuck in the dryer duct, & oh so much easier to clean, than the duct to the outside.
Lilly Lint
The cover just snaps onto little nubs/bumps on the inside of the box.

I purchased a new GE dryer last year. Unfortunately, the built in lint filter just didn't cut it, and I ended up having to vacuum out the vent line every couple months - a REAL hassle! This unit simply splices into the 4" standard duct line and viola you have a simple and easy to clean secondary trap. It is made of heat resistant high temp plastics. Has an easy to remove clear front panel that snaps on and off. You can easily see if it needs cleaning. Filter cleans with a simple wipe of your hand - just like the built in dryer filter. Has mounting ears so unit can be easily screwed to a wall, but I just used heavy duty double sticky tape. As far as I've found, there are no negative factors for this item. Solid construction. Easy to use. Easy to clean. Easy to install. Works flawlessly.

I bought and installed this item about 4 weeks ago. Has been working great. But this week, every time the dryer kicks on, the cover pops off. The cover just snaps onto little nubs/bumps on the inside of the box. Either they have worn down or the heat has caused the box to change size enough so that the nubs and the clips don't make sufficient pressure to hold the cover in place. I had to rig a couple of metal brackets on the wall around the trap to hold the cover on. The trap needs a more positive latch to keep the cover in place.

This does what it was designed to do, trap lint that gets by the regular dryer lint screen. It's been installed for 1 month and the vent outside didn't need to be cleaned out. The outside vent has a plastic critter guard and it would always become filled up by the escaping lint. We had to remove the guard and knock off the excess lint at least once a week. This secondary trap in the basement does a great job, no more lint outside. The vent guard is clean. Hopefully the ground under the vent will also be cleaner. Easily installed and I attached it to the block wall with anchors and screws for added support. I like this plastic model with the clear front door rather than the steel with the small viewing hole. Easy to clean off screen. Time will tell if it has a long life. Excellent product.

UPDATE MAY 2014
So after a few years of use I see one major design flaw, the lid DOESN'T seal all that well. We get a fine lint collection on the block wall behind the vent. You won't notice it until a few weeks or months after use. It would be nice if the lid had some kind of seal around the lip to hold in all the lint. And NO the vent or tube aren't clogged creating back pressure. The only thing that holds the lid & screen inside the box are 4 plastic numbs on the lid that fit inside the box and friction hold it in place. Make sure it's secure or you'll have lint all over. It does capture lint and I only have to clean the outside vent once a year, just a quick wipe down for the fine lint that gets by. I might do some modifications to the lid for a tighter fit.

The plastic piece in the front (see the product picture) pops off occasionally when there's too much air from the dryer which I feel should be designed to handle air

My problems were more with the installation than with the product. Beware that if you try to place this item in the wall and the wall is an interior wall (drywall on either side of a 2x4) then you will have issues. In the end I had to fabricate angles out of duct in order to route the duct out of the wall, enter the secondary lint trap and then back towards the wall on the bottom end because the entry and exit points on the trap are not flush with the back of the traps mounting surface. I only have two other complaints
1. The unit is comprised of two halves and any stress on the entry or exit mounts pulls the square front out of square making the clear front door hard to impossible to remove or replace
2. The lint screen is very cheaply made from thin guage plastic. I forsee a point in the years to come where I have to manufacture a replacement

Overall - after a frustrating 2 day installation, it is installed and functions perfectly. If not for my personal situation with where I was putting it and my wall configuration I would have had it installed within an hour. All that said .... it solved my problems so I would recommend this product with the above advice regarding installation.

I purchased and installed this a couple of weeks ago. It was simple to attach to the wall above our dryer. I did need to buy screws and wall anchors. That wasn't a big concern, given that we have a concrete block wall, so default screws for a stud and wallboard wall would not have worked well anyway. It is a bit difficult to attach flexible dryer hose to the collars on each end of the filter, because the screw portion of a standard clamp bumps up against the flange of the collar and doesn't fit down as well as it should around the portion that the pipe slides over. (It does use standard 4" hose.) The construction is plastic, and seems durable enough, but I wouldn't describe it as heavy duty. The clear door is nice, as you can see when it's full. It seems to be working - it's catching a fair amount of lint.

UPDATE: We've had the lint trap for over a year now, and it's still working fine. It's routinely catching as much lint as the dryer's internal trap. The only problem has been that the dryer hose does occasionally slide off of the collars used to attach it to the filter housing. If the collars were redesigned to make this attachment easier, this would be a five-star product.
