Vent Buffer / air vent buffer

Vent Buffer
Vent Buffer

This air vent buffer fits right below the vent. When the air conditioning is off, it drapes down and shows the black exterior; but when the unit is on, it flattens up to diffuse the air from hitting people directly as well as exposing the yellow belly like a bright, happy sun. Thus it doubles up as an on-off indicator for the air conditioning unit.
