The person who did our walk through mentioned that the. Vent was open and said that to close it you simply pressed in under the cover.

Ok, so how do you open it. I have tried to pull it out but it seems to be stuck. I tried slipping a butter knife under the bottom edge but do not want to break anything. I searched the forum but do not find the topic.

Most have tabs keeping the lid closed. If you post a close up picture of yours, we can tell you how to open it.

Mine is like yours. Newer models no longer have tabs that turn, they use a press fit like yours. They work as you describe. Press in to seal, pry open.

If yours is like mine, there are 2 flat tabs. You put your thumbs on them and push up and out away from the wall. Mine are a bear to open.

if it is like mine, there are two tabs on the bottom that will keep it closed when it is pressed closed... the butter knife is a good idea and pry close to the tab at the bottom of the flapper while pushing UP on the tab with your thumb... nothing really there to break short of taking a hammer to it... once you get one, then pry the second open

once it is open press only one closed and pry (if you have to) open again several times... mine eventually wore to a point that I do not have to pry it open anymore, just use a thumb... actually I only push closed the front edge when traveling and leave the back tab open to make it easier to open the next time...

Thank You all,

You gave me the confidence to pry with both a flat blade screw driver and the butter knife at the same time. I pried at the corner enough to get the knife in.

It finally released first on one corner then the other.

I tried taking pictures before but darkness inside darkness. Mine looks like looks like the one posted by rsdata. I finally got a picture just now up close with my iPad.

We have had this about a week and I hate the thought of breaking it. We love it so far.
