Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by studiopop Great For Another Use, Too
We recently removed a low ceiling on my porch and wanted a finished look for the newly vaulted space inside. We had gable vents on the outside but wanted a great looking vent on the inside as well. The 20 inch Gable Mount fit the bill because the louvers are joined and operate together. This way we could simply prop them open in the summer and then close them in the winter. Perfect!

I needed a way to vent my shed, I checked all the shed stores and none could advise of one single product, so my son and I did a few basic measurements and headed off to Home Depot, with measurements in hand items to finish the job nd we quickly found the fan and gable end shutter, purchased all the necessary stuff to do the job. listed below is what we purchased, if you need to run a new drop for your fan.
1. 1 - 20ft 2/4 plain will do well.
2. 1 - box of 2 1/2 to 3 in wood screws, small box will do if you can find them.
3. 1 - tube of white exterior caulk
4. 1 - roll of romex in door wire.
5. 3 - tubes 3/4in conduit
6. 3 - 90 degree 3/4in
Follow the instructions on the vent box and you should not have any problems.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by toolman Great product...some concern
This is a great shutter for the money and it was easy to install; just use the template provided. If you're using a saws-all instead of a jigsaw you may want to add 1/4" to the all four sides. Once installed, the shutter performed flawlessly. I had to build the 20 x 20 inside frame laying flat instead of laying on edge, (as pictured in instructions), because I was installing on T1-11. But the frame, (either way), is a necessary step in order to have a solid back to screw louver on to; plus it helps to keep out roaches. Regarding the shutter and its design to open and self-close upon the outflow air from the fan, I'm concerned that a sudden updraft from a rain storm could cause it to open (I live in central Florida) but this is only a concern at this point and it has not happened. In the event of an approaching hurricane, I would suggest purchasing or having a custom built waterproof and wind resistant enclosure (on hand) to cover the shutter completely.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bluefire 20" Power Gable Vent Shutter
This product is a fair product for the price. However, be aware that the rough opening for this product is 16.5" X 16.5" and not the 15.25" x 15.25 " stated in the product specifications that are listed on line. Also be aware that if there is any natural draft through this product that the louvers will open. This happens as they are not very heavy and only close by thier own weight and gravity. Any time there is a slight positve pressure on the back side of these louvers they will open.
