Two thumbs down!
from Bountiful, UT
These magnet covers are a complete waste of money. They are too thin, hardly stick to the vents, and then, even with the vent closed they come off when the air comes on. Do NOT waste your money on these.
Works better than I expected
from North Central Arkansas
We have a guest room that's used only for that. When it's not being used I shut down the air vents to save on the electric bill. This summer, even with them closed, the room was still being cooled down by what was coming out around the closed vents. I put the magnetic covers on and they shut the vents off completely, strong seal. You walked into the room several days later and you can feel no cooling at all, down right hot in there now.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
Useless, waste of money

The magnet is so weak it does not even pick up a paper clip, let alone hang upside down from the ceiling registers. The only way they will stay up is if you duct tape them up. These are a complete waste of money.

About Me For closing off rooms, Homeowner
Only time will tell just how long they last. The magnetic hold is weak to start. If they hold they're a good deal to conserve energy and save money.

These magnetic covers work great. My registers are in the floor, and I have one which is located in a bad place in the kitchen. It's right in front of my sink, where I stand while doing dishes. I needed something other than a rug to cover the vent, because the air would move the rug. These are strong enough to stay in place very well.

I thought this was a good idea. I live in a 2-story twnhse in South Florida and the 2nd floor does not seem to cool down in the summers. I wanted to use these to cover my vents downstairs to get more needed air conditioning upstairs. Unfortunately, I discovered my vents were not actually metal and the magnets did not hold to them. They are on their way back.:( Make sure to check yours first!
Not for all vents

About Me Casual Do-It-Yourselfer
The cover works very well. It is not for all covers. Since they are magnet, you have to make sure your covers are metal. Won't stick on Aluminium covers...we had to place the cover on the inside of the vent.
Exactly what I was looking for!
With needing to keep our home warmer and to save money, these are exactly what I was looking for. They were easy to use. No complaints. A good product.

Using on the vents in my basement. I don't like heating all the rooms in my basement in the winter, so with these I can easily decide which vents I want to close off. I painted one of them to match the wall color and you can't even tell it is there!!
