DIY Professional Open Source Night Vision Security Camera
I am so glad to hear that you got your issue resolved, even if it ended up costing you a few more dollars that you anticipated. Look at it this way, you can rest easy knowing that your vent is clear, and you're not going to have a fire. Great work, and thanks for letting me know your trick. I hope it helps others!
That's a heckuva dilemma, my friend. But, a good lesson learned. I have a couple of thoughts on this...One would be to try blowing it out with a compressor. You may need to make sure that the vent pipe is sealed so the air can only get out in the one direction. Another idea may be to take a shortish piece of large diameter spring and attach it to your plumber's snake. The idea being when you twist the snake, the coil will "grab" the brush head by intertwining with it, allowing you to pull it out. I don't need to tell you to keep twisting it in the same direction. :) Let me know what works. I am interested, and love learning new tricks.Wishing you the best of success.
Nice! I have no use for a laser, but I do have a use for a device like this to trigger a camera. It has to be mechanical - with no infrared or ultrasonic motion detection (like modern trail cameras, because I think what I want to photograph can see and hear those devices). And I happen to have a spare air freshener device like this just lying around... you have given me some good ideas. Thanks!
Great idea! May it go well and easy!

Most home improvement stores will have them.
It should be OK. Mine had a couple of bends. Feel free to try it on a test section...as long as the cup is pretty loose in the vent, you should be all right. It's just kind of acting as a "sail". Good success to you!

dwgrosso...No, I remove the Tee and use it for other dryers in the facility when I am done cleaning one of the lines. Covering the slot will allow more air flow to push the cup. Leaving the cord in might be a good idea, it might not. I am really scared of fire, and don't want anything in there that might melt or ignite. Not a bad idea though, if you can find something that won't cause that problem, though a fire marshal might disagree.
Thanks, and you're welcome!
Woolfie, that's a great idea, too. Maybe with markings on the cord, too, so if it does become snagged, you would have a general idea where it is in the system.
Thanks, vivienevolves. That's one of the reasons I love this site. You can learn so much from others! A plumbing (or electrical cable) snake is a great idea too, as long as you are careful and don't punch a hole in the pipe.
Great info! Thanks!
A fabulpus idea! Thanks for sharing!
Yep. I have heard that, too. But since I have "inherited" the buildings I work in, I have to do what I can do. parisusa, this is great advice! Dryer vents are NOT something to be ignored. And with this type of device, it only takes a few minutes. Once never knows when one might be saving a life with something so mundane. In my opinion, ALL lives matter.
