Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave great product.
I relocated floor register in our upstairs bathroom. Originally the air flow was to high. I wanted to relocate the register to a better spot and make the air flow adjustable. I do not have access to adjust from finished space ceiling below. I connected a flexible 8 inch duct to the existing duct connection and extending to a new desired locate. Then connected the adjustable damper flange with 2 tie wraps, slipped other side of damper into floor register boot flange fastened with (4) 3/8" long sheet metal screws, then sealed joint with 100% silicone (or use duct seal caulking). The damper is adjustable by removing register grill, reaching inside floor boot and rotating damper to desired position - full flow, in between or closed. Damper has detents to hold flap in place after moving to the desired position. Now the adjustable damper provides air balancing to the room without noticeable sound which would be created by simply closing the register flaps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Superb quality and very easy to install
Superb quality and very easy to install. Just a great well thought out product. Absolutey seals up and is obviously not going to let any air leak out of it. Good thick quality plastic too. I am glad I purchased this instead of trying to become an HVAC expert and spending the money on tools etc.
Incredibly the box arrived in a DAY! I am not kidding!
Heck, even the packaging was incredible! it appears they used specially punched/cut cardboard from old boxes for the padding that seemed to make the cardboard into a thick flexible padding mat... never seen that before but the wife and I liked it a lot! way better than Styrofoam or messy peanuts. We have kept it and plan on using it for packing away our own stuff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jfudgeelder Fits the bill, great price, easy install
I slapped this collar into my vent system in a few minutes. The zip ties and adhesive collar made a good tight fit and I added some mud just be sure it was completely sealed. The damper has notches for each position so it doesn't turn real easily. This wasn't ideal for my application but a bit of shaving and sanding make it swing freely.

This is a good concept, but you will still have to seal the supposedly gasket and the handle for the damper sits to low to the housing. Once you zip tie the flex duct it's so far under the insulation that you can't even get to it. i had to foil tape and mastic every one of these, buyer beware

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulH Easy to use, very functiional
Just the item for an easy fix. Needed to add a short return air duct to a finished basement, and wanted to be able to adjust or turn off air flow as needed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chief Item functioned well for the use intended.
Used the start collar with damper in connection with the furnace humidifier. The humidifier did not have a damper to control or close off air flow. I was concerned the plastic might crack during installation but it held up well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by toma This product is the best HVAC take-off collar I have found.
I wanted a bottom take off collar with a manual damper to run an HVAC dust into a gameroom bathroom register. I also wanted a collar that was easy to install without mounting tabs and with a good seal to eliminate leaks. This is a perfect selection for my application.
