It needs more instructions
It was very very difficult to get off so I could clean it out. There are no instructions anywhere as to how to take it off. I did not install it so that could be part of the problem. To be fair it also is installed behind a plant .. there long before the vent. It took me a long time to figure out how to remove the cover for cleaning. It did finally pop off with my flat blade screw driver. I think it would be better if it just said pop off on the cover! Very irritating but now that I figured it out I am a fan. It works well. Just needs more information.. especially if you did not install it originally.

    Perfect for the job. Easy to install; hardest part was accessing vents high on the wall.

      where is it made?
      can someone tell me where it is made? I was at Lowes and saw a couple other brands all made in China. Why doesn't Home Depot put country of origin on their website?

      Worth the moeny and effort
      We had an issue with a bird who decided to create a nest in one of our vents without paying rent. :-) This cover should be installed on every home to keep bird and animals from nesting in your dryer and bathroom vents. Depending on where your vents are located the installation is simple. All you need is a few long screws (Home Depot will help you get the correct screws for your home) and a screw driver. You may also need a ladder if the vents are up high or on the second floor.

      Does the job.
      Good quality and Made in the USA. If they came in other colors that would be great, but you can spray paint them (like I did) whatever color you like in a matter of minutes. Install is very easy and they keep the birds and other unwanted pests out of your vents. The other review here describing hidden screws must be for another product. If you look at the picture of this product it's plain to see there are four mounting slots for screws, not included. This cage goes over existing vents.

      this product is difficult to clean without instructions
      Once the cage gets filled with lint and the flaps inside no longer open, there are no instructions on how to remove the grill so you can remove the lint. The screws are INSIDE and covered by the lint so the homeowner has no clue how to remove the vent cover. It requires either the person who installed it or a service man to know what to do.
