I received my Speedi-Wind Cap ahead of schedule and the packaging was very good so the product wasn't damaged. The cap is very good quality an easy to install. It works exactly as advertised. I would recoment this to anyone that lives in areas with potential high winds.

I put in a wood burner 4 years ago because of the high cost of propane. Several times every winter the house fills with carbon monoxide on windy days and nights. I have to open all the windows and doors to keep from being asphyxiated and we've been lucky so far. The carbon monoxide detector helped save us too should add.
I wasn't going another season without trying something else and the directional vent seemed to be the ticket. It went on really easy and got to use it a few weeks later for the first time and on a windy day no less! I noticed right off the smoke was being pulled out of my stove much better. No more getting the puff of smoke coming into the room whenever the stove door is opened. There is much better combustion and air draw, the wood starts burning faster and burns cleaner. So I can say it's literally saving our lives while helping keep fuel costs lower and with the added benefit of no more smokey smelling house and clothes. If anything changes bad or worse, I'll update my review.

We were having back draft issues in our mountain home. Generally there is a constant wind from the west. Installed this item and eliminated the back draft.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scooter Good for what I needed
Bought one of the several years ago from another source, this one is not quite as well built as my older one. Do like the grease fitting on this one, makes lubing a lot easier. One add on I would like to see that my other one has is a spark arrester screen, luckily I had the material to make one.

Approximately 6 years ago I moved into a house in a remote area. The house had a woodstove in it and was constantly back drafting. Every time the door was opened on the stove the smoke would come bellowing out. I never considered a wind cap, I thought it was just the stove and outdoor conditions causing the back draft. However, after speaking with a fire fighter she told me that my stove was not supposed to back draft. We looked at possible avenues to to fix this problem and came across this product on the Home Depot webpage. Although I couldn't afford much and the price is a bit high for my budget, i decided to buy it and am glad I invested in it. It was easy to install as it snaps onto the chimney pipe and flexes with the wind direction. Once we put it on, it immediately worked and I couldn't be more happier with this product.

We had serious backdraft problem coming down our chimney here in montana. I installed this and it worked instantly. Now no smoke coming in my house any more win the wind blows. Excellent product and quality.

The cap spins easily & took less than 5 minutes to install! We bought it because we were having black smoke backdraft into the house @ 3a.m. when the wind changed direction. We stopped using our woodstove this winter until I was able to get a hold of this cap - it's working like a charm & we rest easier knowing that it's doing it's job.
