I cannot get the hose to stay on the metal vent coming out of the dryer. I have tightened the clamp til I am almost bending the pipe but the venting material slides right off? Help and thank you!

    Can you add some details? A photo goes a long way on things like this...

  • There are many ways a Dryer hose adapter and hose can be attached - many styles of clamps too. You do not mention if this is new hose or what. Also you state what you did - but we don't really know what you did - a picture showing it is helpful . I have a simple ring clamp it compresses by itself no tightening of anything and my hose stays on - because the hose itself has to be fitted properly. A picture will help us help you. So click edit underneath your question - click the picture box and add the picture. We will be glad to help you.

Just attach it with some small sheet metal screws.

    If it is soft flexible hose like foil - that will cause it to tear.
