Great product, easy to install, works great.

Works great with my 24hp Craftsman Riding Mower. Once installed, the grass chute remains in an upward out the way position, very convient when cutting close to buildings. Installation was quick and easy, as well as removal for clean up after cutting. I am very happy with this Mulch Plug.

Doesn't fit in the manner described

The plug didn't fit the discharge hole in the deck. Maybe it was for an older model of 42" mower, but it didn't specify in the product description. I managed to get it mounted, although it didn't look anything like the worthless instructions describe. It managed to hold on with the discharge chute straight up in the air until I barely grazed a landscaping timber. One of the cheap bolts holding the rubber straps down sheared clean off. Did I mention that the holes that were supposed to be in the deck to put the hooks through don't match up like the instructions show? Good luck getting that to work.

Like I said at the beginning, maybe it would work if you have an older model tractor. Not so much on a new one.

Does not FIT !

This does not fit a 2008 DYS 4500 917288250 42 in deck, as advertised. This is the model recommended by the craftsman parts list. The plug leaves a gap at the rear of the discharge hole and the straps can not possibly stretch to reach the attachment holes. "cat" was no help. I'm being shuttled to the 800 number. If I could use it, it appears otherwise well made, so one star.

Fits perfect

I bought this mulch plug to go on my new 2012 Craftsman 42" YT3000 Hydrostatic mower. Fits perfect and is easy to remove and re-install for cleaning or other purposes. I did remove my discharge chute because I didn't like how it stayed in the upright positon with this plug installed. It would block me from being able to exit the right side of the mower if needed.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It fits the contour of the base and seals it completely. It turned my tractor into a mulching machine. Great product!

Does what it is supposed to do

Plugs the discharge hole.  I got a set of 3 in 1 Oregon Gator blades and needed a plug.  This one fit my 2012  YT3000 perfectly. The instructions say you have to assemble it, but mine came fully assembled.  The rubber straps that hold it on are a little tight, but I got them on without tools.  Had to shave just a little plastic by the rear half moon cuttout for the deck screw, but just a bit.  Had it on in five minutes.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Mulch Plug

Pros: Does its job as advertised.

Cons: Rubber straps used to attach it to the mower are hard to stretch. There is really no need to have them so tight. If you don't have strong hands, expect to have to use vice grips to pull the attaching straps.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
