dryer vent connection woes!
 
Hello,

I've never done one of these chat rooms before but I must be desparate. I am not a DIY person but cannot reconnect the dryer vent hose (silver caterpillar looking thing) to same to make it vent to outside. Tried to put on a 'venting box' to catch lint but then all that hot humid air filled my basement so bye bye box and now I just need to connect these two loose ends. There are two kinds of clamps there. Hoses are exactly the same size so they don't exactly fit into each other. Should i just bend one to fit into the other? Can anyone help? Many thanks in advance!!

you can go to your home center a purchase a coupling for this purpose. or just get some alum.about 6"-8" long and roll it up so it slides inside of the flex hose then slide the other hose over the other end and then clamp. You best bet is to get the dryer hose coupling. Good luck BOB
