Cleaning access to the new DryerJack Zero

Rick,
Quick question on the DryerJack Zero: Can you clean from the roof? Is there adequate room to feed in cleaning rods from the outside?

Thanks,

Thanks Larry for the question. 
We experimented with a LintEater rod, and was able to direct it into the port and push it through ok.  It was not as easy as I would of preferred.  What is nice though is that there is no sharp metal edges to eat up a rod.

The new batch of DryerJacks incorporate a front throat panel that is removable via 4 galvanized Tek screws.  This will eliminate the rather sharp turn in the cleaning rod, and make access much easier for the professional or DIY duct cleaner.
