Manrose Cooker Hood Kit 125mm
OK, but you'll need extras
The kit itself is fine, but to go through a wall properly i found i needed the 125mm tube and a connector sleeve ring (both available from screwfix)
The external vent will fit the 125mm tube nice and snugly (no need to bond to the pipe - the wall fixings are enough, in case you want to change the colour or vent) - glue on the sleeve ring to the other end of the tube indoors - the metal tube assembly then just slides onto the other side of the connecting ring just right.!
The erbauer 127mm core drill is perfect for the job if used with the plastic tube - the metal flexi-tube will not fit.
Get a couple of large 120-140mm jubilee clips too to make the connections secure..

Not so good
I don't have a problem with the individual bits, they work as well as other stuff I've fitted but...
How is it the hose is too big for the vent? I've had to build up the flange on the vent with tape to provide a close fit, no way would the hose clip tighten enough to pull the hose in otherwise.
Plus the vent suffers from the same problem as all this style with flapping around in any breeze going. They are so noisy. Luckily I had some light foam draught proofing strip which I stuck to the inside bottom edge of each vane, that's quietened it down a lot. I just hope it lasts.
-1969 men on the moon, 45 years later still can't manufacture quiet vents... How can it be so difficult?

Good quality hygienic tubing but the large hose-clip is a nightmare. The one I received is not as shown in the picture and is inadequate. Throw away the clip and use a wider superior one.
The exterior vent is an unsightly grey so buy the brown one as an extra.
