Hi David6631,


The wall vent should be secure, use caulk to secure it to the outside wall.


Once the vent is secure, the flexible duct can be cut with a pair of conventional scissors.


Just pierce the duct with the tip of the scissors and cut it off.


Stretch the duct over the vent pipe; pinch the pipe if necessary to get the duct on. Some effort will be required; however a tight fit is what you want.


You may attach the duct to the vent with a clamp, or use foil tape designed for HVAC ducting.
