dryer vent solution for narrow spaces

i've been looking to get one of those rectangular dryer vents to my FL dryer. the normal connector calls for a 4 inch round but i would love to shorten it by 2 inches as i'm working with a very small room.

i've seen this solution:http://www.google.com/products/catal...ed=0CF0Q8wIwAA

but it seems very flemisy, additionally i need to go a little to the right before i can extend up so the rectangular tube doesn't allow for that flexibility.

with that said, are there any better solutions out there for what i need? I'm even considering getting a 4 inch round and then pressing it to be some sort of oval shaped

You can buy 4" metal duct and adjust it to the contour that you are looking for. The walls of the duct are thin, and will yield somewhat. You can also go to a sheetmetal shop and have them build the exact piece that you need.
