This Secondary Lint Trap is popular and is used with multiple motives.  NOTE: It is designed to be installed (recessed) in the cell of a 2x6 wall.  Many of our customers have alternatively installed it outside of the wall with leakage issues.  Please read the section below detailing the modifications necessary to minimize pressurized discharge when not recessing the DryerTrap in the wall cavity. 
This 180-degree lint trap exhibits male and female 4 inch connections connected to the 6x6x5.5 deep body (depth measurements are from the rear of the box to the nailing flange [5.5"], there is another .75" from the flange to the front rim).  Framing stud mounting flanges are on each side.  The cover plate door and integral screen is designed to friction lock against or 5/8 drywall.  The unit is sturdy, well designed and reasonably efficient.  It features one hand operation with the door and screen combined as one solid unit. The door is finished in appliance white (powder coated) with clear inspection window. With a 5-1/2" depth, it can be installed in nominal 6" wood or metal stud walls.  Screen is two layers of metal screen hemmed in a frame. 
Hanging the DryerTrap on the wall or setting the unit on the floor is ok but requires a modification to prevent the pressurized discharge from escaping.  Apply to the inside flat portion of the door circumference a strip of foam style weather-stripping. When closed, the rim will seal against the foam strip minimizing any leakage of air and lint. 
Note: If more than 6 units are desired, either create a second (new) order or contact us prior to completing your order.

Dryer trap
This is the most ingenious design of a lint trap I could find. It offers a straight thru passage with no angle or turns. This was ideal for flow and looked extremely well in the backsplash, not to mention the ease of clean out. My customer loves it. I would recommend it to all contractors and homeowners alike. Dale V.

Lint trap
Good design, installed it horizontally on the wall at the top back area of my dryer so I can reach the trap door. Two recommendations, install a felt weather seal on the inside perimeter of the trap door and have some sort of fasteners to hold the door in the unit. My door would not stay in so I made two C clamps out of aluminum flat bar and that solved the problem. I'm amassed at how much lint gets through my dryer and is caught by the screen. I would have thought the screen would be a finer mesh.

Works great!
I have a very small laundry room and I was never able to get to the secondary lint trap that came installed with the house right by the floor, behind the laundry machine. With this DryerTrap Secondary Lint Trap I can finally empty it out!! I installed it myself, which required going to the local Home Depot, getting a metal tube to fit below the trap, some tin snips to get them to length, and I used a piece of sheet metal for extra support underneath the lint trap. A little drywall patching later and my laundry room is how it should have been when the house was built. Thank you DryerTrap!!! xD :)

Great product
I installed this in my basement surface mounted. So far it works great and catches a lot of lint. My prior set up left me with lint on my patio stuck to the pavers. I also installed the dryer vent, which is great too!

I am a contractor and have used this for one of my clients. It is much better than other ones that I have used. When used with their other innovative products, your dryer becomes much more efficient and safer. They should include the "recommended" foam weatherstrip as part of the kit.

Lint Trap
Works great. I did follow the recommendations seen in the sites Q&A section by adding 1/2 inch foam weather stripping that I have left over from a door install as well as two machine screws with wingnuts that secured the door to the housing. No leaks! The trap collects an amazing amount of lint with no discernible decrease in the cfm from the dryer. This should be considered a long term fix to prevent lint from entering your ductwork.

Works great
I love this lint trap. It is really surprising how much the lint trap inside the dryer misses. Now I don't have to clean up the yard around my outside vent exit. As my basement walls are only cement, I couldn't mount in a wall and had to add strip insulation. Easy to do and works great. Would recomment this for any dryer use.
