Close Elbow - 4"

12 Reviews


Innovative, lightweight aluminum ell that turns 90° within a 4 1/2" space. Great for uses in tight turn locations like exterior walls with a Dryerbox. Also used in tandem with aluminum flex for a painless transition hose installation due to the swivel ends (two needed for this).

Not as efficient as the regular goose-neck adjustable Ell or the 45-Degree Dryer-Ell.

4' close elbows

by Greg Clark| 5/12/2011 12:00:00 am

I go thru at least 24 elbows a month, i couldn't imagine installing the transistion duct with out them. Also keeps from crushing the duct.

close elbows 4"

My installation requireed using three of the ells in a distance of 4.5'. This is not recommended but there was no other way to do this vent job. Before there was a piece of flex plastic pipe and one of the cheap pastic dampers on the out side. replaced with the dryer box, 3 ells and 4feet of rigid 4" pipe.We have a large capasity Whirlpool dryer and it now drys eveything in just one settig this is due to the improved air flow. I wil and would buy this product again. Hope this helps make your purchase.

Close elbow solves space problem

Exactly what was needed with very little room behind dryer. Avoided hose crimp that practically prevented dryer from functioning before this.

Home depot or Lowes does not have it.

Excellent Product

Glad to have found this product, and avoided the delivery guy's recommendation for flexible duct! This product made it possible to install a dryer with minimal clearance while maintaining safety and airflow.

Good Buy

I bought two of these to make the truns from my dyer outlet to the input of the vent pipe. I had this down with one of the stratchable aluminum pipes but it had gotten crushed and impeeded air flow. These allowed me to put a single straight run of flexible Al tubing. Each end of the 90 deg elbow rotates, it also comes with one clamp. In inside is smooth and air flows much better now. This is a good buy

I have often seen the ad in fine home building magazine and thought the idea was great, so when the need arose I bought one online. It came quickly, installed easily and looks great. It works flawlessly. I think every new dryer location should take advantage of the dryerbox. It just makes sense.

Exactly what I needed with very little room against an outside block wall. Used Flex Aluminum duct next inline and again to make another transition vertically. Then a 90 Ell to turn into attic. Great products to make a safe, smooth dryer vent! Thanks!

Just the right thing

by Steve| 12/24/2013 12:00:00 am

As an engineer I try to make things work as best they can. In Alaska, the dryer is hardly considered in the older houses. So, this Close vent helps maximize space and avoids a crushed flex pipe. It gets closer to the wall than most fittings and has the least amount of affect on exhaust to the dryer. I recommend this over just about all the other ells.

Works well. The swivel at each outlet allows easier installation of semi-rigid aluminum piping as a transition material due to its twisting when elongated or compressed.

Great product. I install these elbows along with a DryerFlex hose on most jobs. The rotating connections at both ends makes it easy to route the transition hose when moving the dryer back into place.

Very nice!

This thing feels like a tank when compared to the other elbows I've ever used (admittedly, that's not very many). It's sturdy as hell, and I feel very comfortable with the notion that it's going to stand up to the inevitable moving about that happens when connected to a dryer. Very smooth interior.
