In response to Re: Venting a gas dryer in an indoor lint vent
: Today I sold an indoor dryer vent kit (it collects lint from a dryer which would be difficult to vent outdoors) for a gas dryer, even though the package clearly stated that it was not recommended for gas dryers. I pointed this out to the customer (I work in a hardware store), but she insisted that that was her only option.

: What are the dangers of this situation

Ralph,
Carbon Monoxide poisoning is why the device is not allowed for a gas dryer. When a gas dryer is sold, the instructions clearly state that the exhaust "must" be vented outside. At least you pointed out the warning on the box. The box warning should have been more severe however.
