Complete Junk - flaps around in the wind noisily

Cheap rubbish. The flap lifts up in the slightest wind and bounces back and forth loudly. I tried to weigh it down with adhesive weights but this didnt help.
Avoid buying this item, its also poorly made. Way over priced as usual with many things made from plastic. Sorry B&Q you need to sharpen up your quality control.
Poorly made, designed and very over priced

The flap forming the vent is held together by two 3mm diameter plastic studs, which of course break off during fitting. How 3mm studs are supposed to take the loading from wind gusts is beyond me. The manufacturer needs to totally redesign this with a view to providing value and longevity rather than profit.
You have to disassemble the vent to fix it. No instructions so despite it being square and visually the same, it only goes back in one way (because it's not exactly the same). So expect much fun fixing it to the wall, then taking it off when you find out it's the wrong way around, then fixing and sealing it again. Oh watch out for the weak studs that will probably break during this fit, refit, then fit again for a third time operation. Perhaps this is a ruse to make you buy more plugs and sealant.
Of all the absolute junk that's sold here, this has to be singularly the most overpriced piece of absolute rubbish in stock. Badly designed and extortionately over priced. £8.50 for this. Do not waste your money and effort on this.
