I'll be adding one over my Create-a-Breeze fan in the bathroom.
How long have you owned these vent covers? Someone told me the plastic doesn't hold up to the elements well. Wondered whether it was true or not.

Ok...I ordered one of these today:

MaxxAir model 800:



I shopped around, and found them to be just as high on the net w/shipping costs as to buy local from my dealer. (around $90)
There is a cheaper model (400) but there is no screen or louvers.

Good to hear. I'll be installing the model 800 next week when I pick it up.

Smile Fan Cover

Be sure to install the LARGE cover over the fan and it will work just fine.

OK how did you all attach your covers over the fantastic fan?? I have done the normal regular vents, drill use nut and bolt etc. With the FF I don't know how to get inside to attach the nut, it's all enclosed.

Help,

Paul B

Very simply put...the regular MaxxAir vent covers are not designed to go over the high volume Fantastic Fans. The MaxxAir model 800 is made for this purpose. The 800 uses self tapping type screws instead of the nut/lock washers on the basic model. They screw right into the vent. It works great.

Do you remember how long the self tapping screws were?? I don't want to short anything out.

Thanks,

Yes, instructions state to not drill any deeper than 1/2'' into the plastic housing. They were 8/32'' self tapping stainless screws.
