Parents will agree, we all want to make sure our homes are safe for our children, and somehow children will always manage to get into things that pose a danger to them - usually when we as adults never saw it as a safety hazard before we had kids. So, it's no surprise that something as simple as a floor air vent cover can be a major hazard to a child. If curious little hands can pull it off, they can insert their arms, toys, or even their head into the vent, leading to potential injury. That's why more and more parents are turning to Childproof Vent Covers to protect their children.
Introduction to Childproof Vent Covers
Childproof Vent Covers are designed to protect your children from the dangers of an open floor vent. They are designed to attach to the inside of the vent with two screws, so no flooring gets damaged, and they have a lid that opens for easy installation and access if you do need to pull something out - but when the lid is closed it has two childproof tabs that keep small hands from opening it.
Childproof Vent Covers come in one size that fit 3"x10" and 4"x10" openings, and they come in 4 different colors, making it easy to match your existing decor. They are made from durable materials and are designed to last for years. They are also easy to install and can be done in just a few minutes. You don't have to worry about a complicated installation process or getting a bunch of DIY supplies that will look terrible and may not last.

How to Measure for the Right Size of Vent Cover
When it comes to choosing the right size of Childproof Vent Cover, it's important to make sure you measure correctly. To do this, you'll need a measuring tape, a ruler, and a pen with something to write on.
First, measure the width of your existing vent. Make sure to measure from the outside of the vent opening with your current vent cover removed, as this will give you the most accurate measurement. Once you have your measurement, write it down.
Next, measure the length of your existing vent. Again, measure from the outside of the vent opening with your current vent cover removed to get the most accurate measurement. Once you have your measurement, write it down.
GuardaVent covers fit 3"x10" and 4"x10" vent openings, so if your vent opening is bigger or smaller than that, you, unfortunately, won't be able to install them. We hope to have more sizes coming soon!
Installation Tips for Childproof Vent Covers
Once you have your measurements, order your GuardaVent Childproof Vent Covers, and receive them, you'll need to install them. The installation process is relatively simple, but there are a few tips to keep in mind.
First, pull out your current vent cover and clean the area around the vent before installation. You can use a damp cloth to clean the area, then dry it off with a paper towel.
Next, pull out any sheet metal nails that are on the long ends of the vent opening that hold the sheet metal to the subfloor. This will make screwing in the Guardavent screws much easier as it provides a pre-drilled hole.
Finally, insert your GuardaVent childproof vent cover into the opening and open the lid. Using the screws provided and a drill, carefully screw into the subfloor on either side of the GuardaVent cover. Use the screwdriver to tighten the screws and make sure that the cover is firmly in place. Once it's secure, you can close the lid until you hear the *snap* of the childproof tabs locking in place, and you are all done!
