According to this video, the Fan/Mate uses self-tapping screws into the vertical flange meaning you don't need to access the inside surface of the vertical flange. And you can add another screw into the roof through the horizontal flange on the fan.

Yes, I tried that. Have you ever tried self tapping screws into soft plastic? My covers would have be on someone's windshield on the highway on the first trip out. A screw into the roof may work I guess as that's essentially what the Ultra Breeze does. I would never trust the self tapping screws into the plastic collar though. I tried it on my first vent. One touch of the cover and they were loose. All I got out of that attempt was four holes to fill with silicone...LOL...

But, does it do windows!

Negative. But it does pull a lot of air through them...
