Default Vent Door Knob



I added vent door knobs to make it easier to adjust the air flow.

Two turns from open to closed.


See the build

Nice! This was my solution for reaching the passenger-side vent for us more altitude impaired!

My solution to reach the passenger vent knob is loosening my harness and reaching over.

This vent knob looks like it might work on the rear vents in any RV-10. Anybody know if that might be possible?

Thanks

I now have had four requests for these vent door knobs.

I am considering making them if I could make them for a reasonable price.

The more I make at one time would save a lot of setup time and help keep the price down.

These could also be used with a cable for remote location.

I would also be interested in 2 of the vent knobs, as I think I can make them work in my RV-10 back seat vents.

Thanks,
