Nice idea, poor execution 6/20/2014
The idea of a flexible hose to clean the dryer vent is nice, but the plastic tubing used is not good. It is too flexible so when the HVAC is on the hose just closes up.
This would be better with either a partially corrugated hose or a thicker hose.
Drier hose attachment cleaner 11/8/2013
Julie from Miami, Fl
I purchased because I have a hard time cleaning the vent in the drier, the item is a great idea, fits in the vent but the clear plastic bends too easily and I was unable to keep it straight, had to removed the clear plastic and just use the attachment, which was just right for my vacuum. Recommend using some kind of hard rubber material for the hose attachment so it doesn't bend as easy!
NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
works fine 9/28/2013

The tubing is so thin that it collapses on itself with minimum amount of suction. Absolutely useless.
Does what says 2/5/2013

It does what it says. Has a plastic tube (like the ones that you would use to suck the water from a fish tank if you need an extender or squeeze in between the vent.

Not worth it at any price! 1/11/2013
Keith from Edmond, OK
Although I didn't expect it to be stellar given the price, I expected it to at least work. Extremely cheap stuff. The connector for the hose was too small to fit over the vacuum hose so I had to jury rig it. Once I finally got it hooked up, the hose material was so flimsy that it collapsed from the vacuum suction. The end of the hose also had vertical cuts in it. I'm not sure why they had the cuts but they had the effect of collapsing the end.
Do NOT order this product! :-(
Good tool to have 1/7/2013
Well worth the price. Worked as advertised.
Seems flimsy 1/7/2013
I had to cut the handle to make it fit my Dyson vacuum. It did not provide good suction. The end would collapse and it kept kinking up. I taped the end with duck tape and keep it straight and now seems to provide a good seal. The only negative with doing what I did is that it no longer fits very tight spaces. I downgraded it due to these issues.
I made it work 1/7/2013
This attachment did not fit on my Dyson vacum but I was able to make it work by just sticking the hose down the vacum hose and holding my hand over the end to get the suction that I needed.
Dryer Cleaneb Tube 1/7/2013
Kind of hard to direct into the dryer because of the built in curve of the plastic
suck it up 1/7/2013
helps end a worry about potential fire
cheap and bad fit 1/5/2013
Very cheap and does provide a good fit on my home vacuum or shop vac. Notice how the persons hand is covering up where the vacuum hose attachment attaches to the vacuum hose. That’s because if you don’t hold it there it will fall off. It’s probably also to help create a better seal since it doesn’t fit tight and leaks air.
Quick shipment 1/3/2013

Good fit on vacuum hose and picks up lint from dryer very well.
Too Flimsy 12/31/2012
The concept is awesome, but in practice the flex tube is to weak. Our Dyson collapses the thing almost instantly. The plus side is at least we can get chunks of lint stuck on the end the draw it up. I think I may put some small holes to reduce suction.
doesn't work well 12/31/2012
steve from queenz, ny
My laundry dryer lint trap is exactly like the one in the picture. 2 problems. While the plastic is flexible, the plastic is thick and not slippery. so, the tube does not slide in and bend at the same time. it does not go all the way under the drum, which is what I would like to do. it gets stuck right in the front of dryer. Second issue is the vacuum seems to suck the hose closed, so the tube closes (becomes flattened, not circular) and does not have strong air flow. I have basic 12 amp vacuum, nothing fancy. In addition, if the tube gets bent anywhere, the suction also loses power. it's very awkward to work with. I assume, if you can keep the tube straight, and you have a not so strong vacuum, it would work ideally, so that's why I gave 4. But I could not get it down to the bottom of dryer, and I had hard time keeping the tube straight and open for optimum air flow. it's a good idea, but I think it needs more quality control testing. Maybe, those old retractable plastic tubes that washing machines used to drain water with. it's thinner material, and doesn't squeeze closed with air suction.

This makes cleaning out your dryer pretty easy to do, without having to take anything on the dryer apart. Cleaning the lint reduces drying costs and possible fire hazards.
