ShelterLogic Instant Garage Vent Kit
Instant Garage Vent system
If you live in any kind of country where there are significant temperature fluctuations, you should definitely buy this product to go with your garage. In both of the Garages I have purchased I have had to mount the vents higher than the directions suggest just so I can get the door to open to its maximum advantage. I only purchased 8' high garages though so that my only be true for the smaller units. The plastic rivets included with the kit are a little on the lame side which is why I only gave this product a 4. When I replaced the vent system after one of my doors wore out, I used plastic bolts and wing nuts to reinstall it since you can's buy kits of just the rivets - they will only sell you a whole new kit.... Having said this, it performs well and my original vent kit is 8 years old now with no reduction in performance.

What a necessity this vent kit is. Prior to installing, it was nearly raining inside my Shelter Logic building. After installing I have no moisture problems at all. I also had a problem with the pins that hold it together but I found that even though a good percentage broke the vents are holding securely in place.

Overall the vent kit is excellent, but as others have said the button snaps break too easily. I bought machine screws, washers, and nuts and it installed very easily after that. The vents do relieve any moisture and excess heat that may build up. Other than that I would recommend this kit for others.

As stated in other reviews the plastic push pins are sub par. Knowing this after reading the reviews I tried making a small hole with a nail before snapping the male/female together. Ended up still snapping about 8 total. There are 16 holes per vent so there was still plenty to hold.The rest of the kit is well made and the screen is even precut to save a little time. Improved the sweaating problem 100%. I think its a good product, just have patience with the cheap pins.

Good product, tough install
The vent has really helped in preventing the "steambath"effect in my shelter on warm days. However, the little plastic push-through fastenters were terrible. About half broke while trying to mate up the male/female ends. I ended up purchasing similar sized panhead bolts , nuts and washers and found it a much easier install.

THE VENT KIT IS A MUST HAVE! THE GARAGE CREATES QUITE A BIT OF MOISTURE AND WILL RUST ANY METAL INSIDE. THEY ARE SIMPLE TO INSTALL WITH A FRIEND. BUT! THE CLIPS PROVIDED ARE A WASTE OF TIME- I USED MACHINE SCREWS INSTEAD!!!

Vent kit was not as simple to as install as stated, and several of the buttons either popped or broke. Still having trouble with condensation on the bikes in the large garage. There is however no other types of kits to choose from for these garages.
