Duct pipe question

Since the ducts are made by inserting into each other, I was wondering if you build the whole duct and then insert the appliance?
Or could you leave a straight section both ends crimped, and then use a straight section and snap it close to complete the duct?

Duct pipe question

Either way. Sorta depends on how easy it is to move the appliance

If the run of duct is short, it may be hard to do it the other way (you have to depend on being able to push the ducts apart enough to insert that last piece).

You could also consider a draw band that is basically a clamp that you can connect two sections with. Can't be used on exhaust venting though.
