Replacement cooker hood vent. Bought one and fitted it ok.
Switched fan on and vent flap opened. Switched fan off and flap stayed open catching on sides of vent.
Took vent off and the flap fell out breaking off one of the pins that flap hangs on.
Bought second one, checked on flap operation before fitting. Had to trim off excess plastic from flap as not closing properly just like first one.
Fitted vent back up. Whilst clipping vent to back plate flap fell out again and guess what.......yes the pin broke off.
I think the phrase we are looking for is "NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE".

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DasDirektor Not suitable as an inlet
I originally bought this to use as a weatherproof inlet for ventilation reasons, only to find that it is outlet-only due to the moving flaps.
I have since found another use for it, where it performs wonderfully. The shielding of the flaps from the wind helps keep down noise.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lancman A better fan cover
Although titled a â125 mm PVC Circular weatherproof cowled wall outletâ, the second bullet point states it is made of ABS and not PVC. There are no marks on any of the plastic parts to say what it is made of, neither is there any mention of Manrose. I think it is made of either ABS or polystyrene, but in any case, it is a bit flimsy. I broke the strut across the bottom of the cowl when removing it. It was easily solvent welded to repair it, but that should not have been necessary.
I purchased this fan cover to replace a Marley louvred cover. The noise made by the louvres of the old cover rattling in breezy weather was very annoying. Sadly, this design is no better. The frequency of rattling is lower, but the noise is just as annoying. I solved the problem by fitting a magnetic closure and it is now fine, but I should not have had to do this. With insensitivity to wind at last, I am very happy with this cover. It is a huge improvement on the original Marley junk.
