I have a dryer vent for my new glass block windows. Unfortunately,
re-attaching the dryer vent has been remarkably frustrating.
The window is three glass blocks high with the vent installed on the
top-most, left corner.
In order to fit the vent around a gas-line pipe that partially blocking this
vent, I have the fire-safe aluminim flex-hose connected to an elbow that I
want to attach to the vent. The elbow doesn't seem to fit snugly in the
Is there a trick to fitting it snugly? The elbow has two different
ends....one is sort of tapered with ridges on the end while the other end of
the elbow has a straight opening. I guess the tapered end is considered the
"male" end...is that the end I should be fitting into the vent or is it the
female end. It didn't seem to want to fit either way.
