Some of you have already bought 60mm vents and 12V fans from me. More of both have just arrived along with some 5V 60mm fans.

I now also have 40mm passive vents in stock. They have the rain hood just like the 60mm ones.

In due course I'll have 60mm filters that go between the vent and the fan to stop the creepy crawlies.

Also on the way are some cheaper 30mm passive vents suitable for ground facing areas.

Silly question, but these screws go thru the fan into the vent and lock the 3 items together!?!?
You can screw the fan to the vent first using short screws (not supplied) through the holes closest to the vent. The screwdriver goes through the holes in the other face to do them up. Then you attach the mesh to the non-vent side of the fan using the stumpy screws supplied with the mesh.

Alternatively you could use longer screws (not supplied) to go through the mesh and fan into the vent and not use the supplied stumpy mesh screws.

In due course I'll do up a photo of each method.

Plenty of 60mm fan mesh filters in stock again. More fans on the way. I've also added an 80mm vent to the line-up.

To make them all easier to find, I've created a new "Fans, Vents & Filters" product category.

More stock of 80mm filters and vents are now available.

The 60mm fans are also now back in stock (5V and 12V).
