        Comments about Automatic Vent Opener:

        My little greenhouse is almost old enough to vote and the original vent opener finally wore out after faithful years of letting the heat out day after day. If I worked as well or as hard as that thing did I've have wore out long before it did!

          • Works On My Greenhouse

          Comments about Automatic Vent Opener:

          This vent opener is for my 20 year old Northern Lights greenhouse. My husband had to make a slight modification on the hardware to allow the window to open. I would not have known to do that. This product is the only one out there I have found that works. The cylinder is the key to the workings, and it usually lasts several seasons.

              -As other people said the instructions are confusing, but once it is installed it's great. -Provides peace of mind, you KNOW that the frame is open when it's warm.

                  I bought a greenhouse from GS ten years ago and have needed replacement window openers for several years. This is a perfect replacement. I now just need to buy the thermo-piston parts for my other windows.

                  • Solid Construction

                  Cons

                  • Cylinder ruined by freeze

                  • Chicken coops
                  • Greenhouse windows

                  Comments about Automatic Vent Opener:

                  The cylinder must be removed in areas with cold winters, or it becomes inoperable. Unfortunately I neglected to do this, all the cylinders failed, and now I'm looking to replace them. Otherwise these are very handy on the greenhouse to regulate the temp without having to be around.

                    I couldn't believe that it really works. I don't know how it actually opens the lid of the cold frame but it does. The lid is a little heavy also, so I was really surprised.It's easy to use and set up.

                            I don't understand how it works, but IT WORKS!!
                            I'm new to hobby greenhousing but the automatic vent opener gives me a good sense of security that I won't cook my plants.
