The Flexflow Elbow (patent pending) ensures that a flexible duct connection to a diffuser maintains its proper shape for maximum airflow, says the company. It works as a brace to hold ductwork in place, forming the flex duct into a 90-degree elbow. The elbow fits over the outside of the duct at diffusers and round taps, using an adjustable strap similar to a zip tie. One size fits ducts from 6 to 16 inches. It is UL listed for use in return-air plenums.
