For YJs equipped with ac there is a row of vents under the dash.

yup, which is what started this whole thing. all those threads about people wanting to push the heat out through those vents instead of the defroster. i don't get it though, 1690 views and I've only heard from one other person who's tried to make their own.

Great Idea . Patent It.
One Thought Though, Did You Try Putting Wing Nuts On The Pivot So One It Will Not Rattle And Two You Could Set It Half Way To Let Some Heat Go To The Windshield.
I'm Getting Ready For The Blizzard That Is Comming. I Wish I Had One Now.

I bought one of these things in Dec/Jan and my GF loves it. Warms her up right quick. That's right, Sentinal warms up my woman.

I like that idea. I could probably come up with a quick drawing in AutoCAD to mass-produce these things!

which idea would that be? making a jig? a real manufacturing plant would probably just stamp them. punch the blanks and the holes for the arms in one shot, load a batch in the press and fold all 3 bends at the same time. 25-50 done in 15 minutes. the arms i ended up making out of 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/16" aluminum angle. i found it was easier than trying to make the arms out of sheet metal and the aluminum was easy to file into shape and drill. steel might have been cheaper but would be more work to round the corners off. mass producing them might be easier on a mill or just casting them out of plastic. really, casting the whole thing in plastic might be the best bet since you wouldn't need to paint it and you could cast multiple colors to match the different interior colors. too bad it's a season thing, but who needs heat in the summer oh and i could also do the drawing. though it would be in visio. don't have Autocad anymore.

Maine, I'll be sure to have some ready for you come fall.
