Excellent product and easy to fit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bayliss XL Auto Vent Opener (Kitchen & Home)
I've always used Jemp vents in the past, but got fed up with having to replace them when they got "tired" and stopped opening properly. So rather than buying a fourth, or even replacing the actuator tube, I looked for alternatives.
Bayliss had good reviews and a good price, so that's what I ordered.
The product came quickly from "The Gardeners Friend", and was in good condition. It was easy to fit, and opens wider and more quickly than I remember the Jemp-vent working even when new. My only regret is not buying two.
I'd drilled two holes for the Jemp-vent, but the spacing of bolts on the Bayliss is slightly different, so I had the choice of drilling another hole in the aluminium frame or relying on the clamping action of the Bayliss. In the event, I drilled the hole, but probably need not have bothered.
Adjustment is very simple, and the unit does not stick far into the greenhouse, so there's virtually no risk of banging your head on it -- I can't say the same for the prop supplied with the greenhouse, which is why it would have been nice to put a Bayliss on the window that's usually propped open.
