J-Block Installation

  1. Center the nail flange over the vent hole of the building and secure it into place.
  2. Install siding around the nail flange opening.
  3. Assemble tube, then attach to faceplate with seam oriented up. Make sure all pre-stamped snaps are secure.
  4. Insert tube through the nail flange and into the hole in the building. Snap the faceplate into the nail flange, and adjust it to the thickness of the siding.
  5. Confirm the faceplate is level, the doors are flush, and the vent closes securely.
  6. Optional: Seal the top and sides of the faceplate with silicone if needed.

Wide-Mount Only Installation

  1. Assemble tube and attach to faceplate with seam oriented up. Make sure all pre-stamped snaps are secure.
  2. Insert tube through the hole in the building and confirm the faceplate is level.
  3. Fasten faceplate to building with screws using the premolded concealed or exposed mounting pattern. Use screws that are appropriate for the building material your vent is attaching to.
  4. Confirm both doors close are flush to the mount or adjust screws as needed.
  5. Optional: Seal the top and sides of the faceplate with silicone if needed.

Important Notes

  • Wide Mount installation may require the removal of surplus J-Block snaps – only for J-block vent. The wide mount only vent does not have snaps on the back.
  • Do not overtighten screws or this will deform the faceplate and the doors will not be flush when closed.
  • When attaching the metal tube to the faceplate, the seam must be at the top or it will not allow for proper door closer.
  • When installing the vent, it is important to hang the mounting plate vertical or slightly inward at the top for a better door seal.
  • Recycle unused nail flange -not needed for the wide mount. This applies to the J-block vent.

Maintenance

  • Ducts can be cleaned with lint brush from either side of the vent
  • Multi-story cleaning is possible from the inside without using a ladder
  • Annual Cleaning recommended
