    We do not currently manufacture a vent designed to work with this diameter opening.

  2. If mounted vertically (facing downward) is the spring strong enough to keep the damper closed? If not, do you have something you would recommend? Application is bathroom shower vent that leaves the house under an overhand facing toward the ground in New England, so damper is important in the winter.

    No - the spring in this damper would not be strong enough to keep it closed when mounted vertically. For applications like this, we would typically recommend our round under eave vent with weighted damper, found here: https://www.famcomfg.com/product/round-soffit-under-eave-vent-plastic-4inch/

    You will want to check with your range hood manufacture to see which duct size they recommend, but we would recommend our 10" model for a 1,000 CFM range hood.

    The damper can only be removed by cutting off the plastic tabs holding it in place on either side of the vent, so it can be removed, but cannot be reinstalled once removed.

    The screen on this vent is removable, so if you were to use it for dryer exhaust the screen would need to be removed. This would prevent a fire hazard caused by lint buildup.

    Typically we would recommend ordering galvanized steel models, as Galvanized Steel will grip paint much more easily than Aluminum.

  1. John H. (verified owner)

    When I received the hooded vent the damper was not connected and in the black grommets so I had to finish the assembly after I received it. I’d say quality was fair for the price.

  2. Tommy McSpadden (verified owner)

    Vent diameter was more than a true 5 inches. I had to modify it and the connecting pipe to make it work. It was more fragile than I expected.

  3. Raymond P. (verified owner)

    The insect screen is VERY flimsy and does not cover the entire opening.
