The Automatic Vent Opener was designed to automatically control the temperature and humidity levels and provide additional ventilation when needed, making gardening easier. As the atmosphere in the greenhouse warms, the vent gradually opens to enable the right Greenhouse Vent Opener amount of ventilation into the greenhouse and closes when the temperature cools.

Note from the maker: Recommended to lubricate the piston rod annual, this will help extend the lifetime of the hydraulic cylinder. Don’t use solid grease, as dust particles “glues” quickly onto the piston rod and will damage the rubber. Also do not forget to unlock the vent in the winter if departing the vent openers installed. A good weak winter sun can high temperature the hydraulic cylinder sufficiently to make it start pushing the piston rod outwards.
