Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lightuhday Poor quality
Purchased for a shop squirrel cage fan. Unit has a fairly stout frame but needs to be sealed at corners and particularly at bottom or it will leak if exposed to weather. Frame also comes with pre-punched mounting holes that are ridiculously large, 1/4" x 1/2". This is larger than any pan head screws available at HD. Unit shipped to me had one vane that would not close completely and could not be completely fixed because one pivot end pin (which are friction fit and can not be removed) was not put in straight. My biggest objection is the vanes themselves are very flimsy. All vanes came fairly straight at top but all had curve at bottom which meant none close very well, with a gap in middle from 1/8" to 1/2". This unit will not keep out blowing snow or driving rain and should be re-designed and subject to better quality control.

This unit seemed to be very well built but after further inspection and installation I found it to be flimsy. I feel it could have been a bit more sturdy. After installation, which was done per instructions, I found that it doesn't close properly, the aluminum shutters are just too light in construction to weigh themselves closed when fan is not operated.

Installed with attic exhaust fan to relieve heat from my garage. Seems flimsy but when installed correctly everything tightens up. Functions as designed. 20 degrees cooler in garage.

I installed this along with a new fan in my garage roof gable. Works alot better than the fixed vent I had. I would like to do the same to the house gable vent but I am concerned about birds and squirrels being able to gain access to the attic so I would add a wire screen to it.

This was a good size for us to use with the attic fan installed. Happy it worked out, since we bought it through the website. Shipping took about a week. No complaints.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve98516 Good product. Works well. But, not perfect
Product works well and is easy to install. Louvers are light weight, so the air from my attic fan easily opens them. They also close quietly, again because they are light. All is aluminum, so they won't rust.
My biggest problem was that the aluminum frame did not meet soundly in the mitered corners. There was a gap on each corner that would allow water to infiltrate if the vent is mounted so it is exposed to wind and rain. I used angle aluminum screwed on the outside of each corner to narrow the gap, then caulking to seal them. In the end it seems fine, but did require extra, unexpected effort.

There is another "big-box store" that offers a product at a similar price...except their's is plastic and does not last. I know....I've gone through 3 of them and then I found this one. I would have rated it as "excellent" except that one of the vanes was dislodged in shipping, but was easily repaired.
