Slightly let down by mediocre design
on 26 October 2011
This unit allows me to vent my tumble-dryer just as I'd hoped it would, but two things could be improved:-
1. I think it is down to this product's design that it seems unnecessarily fiddly to clip the top onto the base. The clearance between these parts is rather small, the base distorts slightly when pressed, and the mouldings don't appear to be tapered to ease assembly. Consequently, I cannot perform this operation quickly with just one hand, and I find that slightly irritating.
2. The attachment point for the venting hose could benefit from being more substantial. It really doesn't grip the hose! To keep my venting hose from falling away while I move the assembled unit from the preparation area (where I insert the ice containers and then replace the top) down to my chosen operating location on the floor, I have clamped the hose to the inlet using nylon cable ties. I think it's a pity that - short of improving the design to eliminate this problem - no clips or ties etc were included with the unit to address this issue.
These criticisms aside, I think this unit will meet my needs.
