If you've ever installed a Clothes Dryer you know that the vent at the back is in jeopardy of being pinched off the second you push the unit back into place.
The simple way to eliminate this problem is by using a recessed box. The DryerBox Model 425 gives you a few inches back into your laundry room, and prevents the inevitable kink with an exhaust collar flush to the wall.
I've been using these for about 10 years now, and finally when I was on the job site yesterday it hit me that not everyone has seen these before. Here's an Amazon link to the Model 425 shown. Cheap but effective solution for this common problem.
