Vent Covers

I found these at Wal Mart for $4.96 a pair. They're magnetic, so you'll need to have metal registers. Should keep dirt and other things from falling in the vents when not in use.
Sorry, my scanner isn't large enough to get the whole package, but here's a pic of most of the package and one of the covers.

That is a nice idea, the other thing it helps with is if you have small pets with small legs and feet it looks like it will keep there feet from getting caught in the vents slots.

Says it blocks unwanted airflow. What airflow, when our furnice is off, there is no airflow.

As to the little pets feet, unless you have a bunch of mice running around I don't see a problem with feet getting cut?
Am I missing something here?

I questioned the air flow as well, but my main reason to buying these is to keep dirt and small objects from falling in the duct work.

As far as pets, I'm guessing a cut foot wouldn't be as much of a problem as a claw or a toe or two getting caught in the vent causing an injury.

But then, I don't know. Just ask my wife!

I put register air filters under my registers. They are "over sized" so the actual register (metal or plastic) holds them in place. The filters filter the air coming out, and catch junk that would have fallen in (like dog kibbles and small bits of junk and dirt).

Lou, would that not restrict the airflow coming out?
Or are they made to not restrict it?
Thanks
Jack

Has not been my experience.
They are designed to work with forced air registers. They are white and fairly "course"

My wife has two Long Hair Teacup Chihuahuas that camp with use, there rear paws measure 1/2" wide and a standard floor vent slots measure the same if they were to twist there paws while standing on the vents it could cause a problem, that's what you are missing here. Now we take our 80 lbs Greyhound as well and he is not a problem with the floor vents.

The advertizement says "To Stop Unwanted Air Flow" that's there main perpose but Gary had a different idea for them and it is something to consider so that the duct work in the floor will stay clean, so what is wrong with that? Am i missing something here?

There other ways to do this but they do look nice.......
