Dryer vent wall cover/pass through

Posted by mmmbeantown (My Page) on

Replaced the old vinyl slinky that the previous home owner had installed for our natural gas dryer (surprised he never had problems). Sadly at the interior wall where the duct passes through I don't have cover to clean up the hole. There was one, thinking it would be easy to find I already tossed it.

Can't find a replacement! Am I missing something here? THANKS in advance.

Just buy some aluminum flashing and cut a 4" hole in the middle and attach it to the wall.

I think what you are looking for is a 4" Round Wall Escutcheon.I am assuming you from the Boston area, this should be an easy find. Your best bet is the local HVAC supplier or someone that specializes in duct work, not the box stores.
