  • 6" Wide x 8" Body
  • Part Number DJK486

  • Hinged, light gauge galvanized steel bird-proof damper

Additional Description:

This medium sized galvanized roof cap has a plate (flange) size of 12” wide x 14” and the structure is 6” wide x 8” and about 8” high.  It has a 4.12 inch diameter collar that excepts typical residential dryer exhaust conduit.  Per building codes, there is no screen in this vent as it is exclusively designed for clothes dryers.  Unlike other roof vents this vent features a unique light-weight damper that is curved which increases the efficiency dramatically.  The final opening is 65% larger than the round pipe portion.  By far, this is the most efficient roof vent on the market. 

The collar penetrates the plate about 1.25 inches and is sealed to the plate with a silicone bead.  It will work on a flat roof as long as there is no chance of standing water greater than 3” and sloped roofs up to 12/12.  Note: Not recommended for use with a very high-profile roof tile like true Spanish Barrel (cap and barrel) as there is only 5 inches between the opening and the bottom plate.  Nest building within would be doubtful due to the slope and shape of the damper.  This vent is proudly made in the USA.

Professional installation is recommended.

Not recommended for flat roofs where the water level could exceed 1” due to the inability of the roofs’ drains to dissipate the water.
Not recommended for for bathroom exhaust fans with less than 70 cfm output.

Best dryer roof vent ever!
  Very well designed product that works exactly as advertised. Low restriction but has a great back draft damper and no screen to clog with lint.

In-O-Vate Dryer Jack 486 Extra Clearance Roof Vent
  Since purchasing our home over 13 years ago, we have had certain 'issues' with our dryer vent which vents through the roof. When we purchased a new, efficient front loader washer & dryer, I thought certain aspects would be 'better'. I was wrong. When we had our roof replaced about 3 years ago, I discussed with the roofing company, the issues that I had with the dryer vent - which entailed going on the roof for 2 reasons: 1 - to clear the lint off of the screen - which had to be done on a very regular basis; 2 - to clear the snow away in the winter so that I could use my dryer. The roofing company said that there were no better options, so for the past 3 years (since replacing our roof), either me or my husband have still had to go up on the roof to clear the screen on a regular basis; and to clear the snow when needed in the winter. I found your In-O-Vate 486 Dryer Vent Extra Clearance Model on line. My husband felt it looked to be a good product and we purchased it. Our roofing company was not terribly cooperative in replacing it; so we had our chimney professional do the work. Your vent is awesome. -First, no more clearing the screen - because there is none and we have since found out that a screen on a dryer vent is a fire hazard! The damper on the DryerJack opens when in use and closes when idle to keep out pests. I do hope that the damper door works properly for years to come. -Second, we had quite a bit of snow several weeks back, and the height and shape of the vent worked as we had hoped - we did not have to go on the roof to clear snow - the vent worked and cleared its own area - yea! I can supply pictures if you are interested. -Finally - a real surprising and huge plus - my dryer has never worked so efficiently. My dryer dries twice as fast as it ever has! I am guessing that the airflow is so much better. I am thrilled with the DryerJack Innovate Goose Neck 486 Dryer Vent. I wish that roofers cared about the products that they consider 'ancillary' to installing a roof. Your vent was no more money than the vent that they purchased from a large retail store; yet, your vent works properly and efficiently. Thank you for a great product! And - BTW, I am very happy to see that it is made in the USA! Sincerely, Barbara in New Jersey PS - The owner of roofing company came out and looked at our new DryerJack vent - and he was impressed.

DryerJack - Gooseneck design - 4" collar
  In my search for a well built american made dryer vent, for a through the roof application. This vent can't be beat. I was impressed with the way the vent was built very heavy duty, I found the installation to be trouble free on an existing roof, the collar was placed appropriately to allow for this. the only improvment I could recommend is a rolled bead on the vertical sides of the flange to help with weeping water, although I have had no leaks at this point. I would defiantly recommend this vent over what home depot or lowes carries and their isn't much else to be had since I did a pretty good internet search for this type of vent.

Works Amazing!
  I received mine as scheduled, paid $82 for delivery, but didn't mine because DryerJack - Gooseneck design vents are not available in Hawaii or in any home improvement store here. I had to replace my existing vent because it was very inefficient and collected alot of lint. I was in the middle of re-roofing my home too. DryerJack vent was installed as instructed. For this installation, I had to attach a 4" x 3' duct to the vent using a 4" clamp and screwed sheetmetal screws through the clamp and collar and sealed the joint with duct tape. Vent was installed from the top of my roof and through my interior ceiling. I had to ensure that the duct would not come off since I would not have access to the vent collar once installed. Vent works amazing, wife is happy that dryer takes a single cycle to dry a load of clothes. Vent is designed with an access cover that makes it easier for cleaning vent and is almost twice the size of my previous vent, so I don't expect it to collect alot of lint. I recommend checking your dryer vent yearly anyway and eliminating any possible fire hazards to your home.

Best design
  As a contractor, I have installed many types of dryer vents. This is absolutely the best roof dryer vent I have found in 30 years. Very well made with heavy gauge galvanized steel and power coated. The design does not allow animals to enter and easily opens completely when the dryer is in use. Excellent product, easy to install.

Love Dyer Jack
  When our roofers replaced our roof and replaced our old dryer vent on the roof, they used a vent that was not made for venting dryers. We had to replace the heating element in our dryer. After that I search for a better dryer vent. I found the BEST DRYER VENT at In-O-Vate....the goosemeck dryer jack. It is working wonderfully! I LOVE IT!
