Special Lightweight Magnetic Ceiling Vent Cover
All vents are made differently and ceiling vents can be more difficult to cover with magnetic covers because they are flat against the ceiling and gravity pulls down so much more strongly on the entire magnet at the same time. 30 mil sheet magnet is not light. If there is not enough flat steel on the vent to hold the magnet, it can fall easily, especially if there is air pressure behind the cover. For this special need we have created our special lightweight magnetic ceiling vent covers. They are made of heavy duty white sheet vinyl with a border of solid 60 mil sheet magnet around the outer edge. This magnet will make good solid contact with the flat steel of the vent. Magnet touching the thin edges of the louvers of the vent will do little to hold the magnet's weight. Only magnet touching flat steel will hold the cover. Be sure to test your vent with a magnet to make sure it is steel. Carefully measure your vents before placing your order. Our covers will fit only as well as you measure.
You will need to supply us with your vent's measurements.
Measure the length and width of your vent as shown as 16"x16" in our drawing below. Also, measure the flat steel area around the vent that the magnet will stick to, shown as 1¼" in our drawing. We will need these measurements to make your custom magnetic vent cover. It's very helpful if you can send us a photo of your vent. Email your photo to: email@example.com
Prices are determined by the size of your vent in square inches. Multiply the height by the width and then multiply by $.06. This will give you the price before shipping is added.

- Non-returnable, non-refundable
Vent covers are a custom cut product. They cannot be returned for a refund. Please be sure of your measurements before you place your order. Also, be sure to test your vent with a magnet to make sure it is steel. The magnet must make good solid contact with the flat steel areas of the vent to stick. Screw heads sticking up may hold the magnet away from the flat surface of the vent and prohibit it from sticking. Screws with raised heads should be replaced with countersunk head screws. Control handles for vents can be in the way of the cover and keep it from sticking to the flat steel areas. All vents are different and we have no way of knowing if this vent cover will solve your particular vent problem. Please make all necessary tests to determine the usability of our vent cover for your purposes before ordering. The responsibility for determining if our vent cover is what you want, rests with you.
- Additional Shipping Charges May Apply
On some larger sizes, vent covers must be shipped via UPS and the shipping costs are higher than standard Priority Mail shipping. Be sure to ask about the shipping charge when placing your order.
- All Air Conditioning and Heating Vents Are Not Created Equal
Some vents are flat and others are curved and multi-layered. Some have a vent control handle in the center or off to one side. Some are plastic or aluminum while most are steel. Some have more thin louvers than others and some have more flat surface area than others. It is necessary for the vent to have sufficient flat areas of steel for the sheet magnet to stick to. Unfortunately, we can not accept returns for custom cut vent covers.
