Product Details

In many areas of the United States plumbing vents are sealed with lead. Unfortunately, squirrels like to gnaw on the lead and tear it open, potentially causing roof leaks. Over time, these leaks can cause significant damage. In addition plumbing vents are a major entry point for frogs, rats and other animals to enter into toilets. In the past the only way to repair this was to call a contractor, have them pull shingles, replace the lead and put a screen on the repaired vent. A repair that requires shingle removal rarely looks good potentially exposes damage and is expensive. Critter Quitter offers a cost effective and attractive solution to this problem. A home owner can repair their damaged plumbing vents without having to remove shingles or call a professional. Simply cut the unit to match your roof pitch, slide the unit onto the damaged vent and secure with 4 stainless steel screws (provided). The internal component will direct rain water into the vent keeping the damaged portion dry and keep animals out of plumbing. The unit is easily removed if plumbing vent access is required.
  • Repairs damaged plumbing vents sealed with lead without removing shingles
  • Keeps frogs and rats out of toilets
  • Slides over existing flashing making repair easy, no need to call an expensive contractor
  • Injection molded UV stabilized polypropylene construction for long life
  • Stainless steel anodized black screws included
  • Embossed pitch lines and pre drilled screw holes make field cutting and installation quick and easy
  • Matt black finish is attractive and easily painted if desired
  • Return Policy

Q:Can this be used on my gas hot water heater vent pipe?
by|Aug 17, 2022
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  No, it is not designed to be on a potentially hot exhaust from a water heater. It is made of plastic and may cause back pressure issues which might be dangerous.

by|Aug 18, 2022

    A:  I am not sure but I would say no it can not. Those are normally Metal enclosed that animals usually do not go near

      Q:Will a vent repair using this product pass a house inspection?
      by|May 27, 2021
      5 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes, I've had 2 inspections pass with them but strangely enough I first had to explain to the buyers and inspectors what they were ! You just tell them it keeps the squirrels from knawing on the lead.

      by|May 28, 2021

        A:  Critter Quitters have been installed for years to pass home inspections with no issues ever reported.

        by|May 27, 2021

          A:  I am not a home inspector so I do not know what they are looking for but this item does fully cover the vent pipe completely. We had squirrels that liked to chew on ours and since we installed these on all our pipes the squirrels have not been back.

          by|May 28, 2021

            A:  My house passed inspection with critter quitters on every vent

            by|May 27, 2021

              A:  Don't see why not.

              Q:Do you carry them in stores
              by|Nov 13, 2020
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  No, Critter Quitters are only available on-line at homedepot.com. They ship within one business day, usually the same day.

              by|Nov 13, 2020

                A:  When I got mine 2 years ago, I ordered two and there was free shipping to the house. I could have shipped to store for free and picked up there but worked out well having shipped to house. So far the squirrels have left them alone and they show no signs of being eaten like the prior material which was virtually destroyed!

                Q:Do they come different color or can I paint them ?
                by|May 23, 2020
                5 Answers
                Answer This Question

                A:  I think they all come in black to provide maximum ultraviolet protection and longevity. Any paint made for application to plastic and for use outdoors should be fine.

                by|May 25, 2020

                A:  I have not seen any other color. Not sure why you would want to paint them. Depending on color it might bring Critters to them. The black seems to blend into most roofs.

                by|Oct 24, 2020

                  A:  Critter Quitters are made of polypropylene. They only come in flat black but are textured for painting. We recommend that you first paint the unit with clear spray plastic primer, then paint with the color of your choice. Make sure any primer you use is compatible with polypropylene.

                  by|May 25, 2020

                    A:  They only come in black. You can use a quality paint for plastic. Preferably a high temp paint.

                    by|May 25, 2020

                      A:  No they only come in black, but I painted mine with brown plastic paint. Had a little sun fading but still looks great

                        This appears to be a simple fix to a major problem. It was easy to install and looks good. Time will tell if the squirrels will leave it along. I believe I have made a good investment.

                        Great product, easy to install. This product will certainly save you money and headache if you have squirrel's around. The squirrel's here were chewing up my lead vents causing leaks. Installed this product and the problem stopped. I also like the look of it over the lead vent.

                        Good solution to a common problem. Product is thick and should be able to be reused. In the future I would use on a new roof to prevent lead jack damage.

                          Neat product!
                          This was a quick and easy fix to squirrels eating my vent pipes. It prevented me from having to hire a roofer to remove the old lead boot. This would have been costly. Easy to attach with screws supplied. I would definitely recommend this product.

                          Squirrels NO damage after install in Jan. 2017
                          Squirrels were thoroughly enjoying destruction of the lead on vents of our house. I went searching for solution & found the Critter Quitter. I ordered 2; figured out the angle that the roof was & cut them. I needed to have someone do the actual install as the angle of the roof was greater than what I could do. The two handymen who were here doing something roof related had no problem putting these over the existing PVC pipes & screwing them in. That was 5 years ago. Squirrels have left alone!
