    Easily closing and opening Air-Conditioning / Heating Vents

    Quite by accident, I ran across an easy and efficient way to open and close HVAC vents in the home. It just gets too cold in my study with the vent fully opened when the rest of the house needs the A/C on. But then, there are times in the heat of hottest part of the day, that I want the study vent fully opened.

    I'm not quite tall enough to easily open and close the vent with my arm stretched out.

    Behind the study door, I had stored an old wooden flagpole that I'm not using now.

    The top of the flag pole I use to close the vent with a downward pull.

    The base of the flag pole I use to open the vent to just the amount I desire. After it's full closed, just a tap or two gives me just enough of the A/C to be comfortable.
