EZDetach Fan Cover / EZDetach Fan Cover

EZDetach Fan Cover
EZDetach Fan Cover

This design connects the front and back covers by a zipper, allowing you to easily clean the fan with less disassembly time. A zipper instead of screws or other fasteners is used to connect the front and back covers. Rubber strips are attached to the edge of the front and back covers to reduce noise caused when the covers hit each other. This design allows users to disassemble the fan cover more easily, especially helpful to women, children and the elderly. This design applies the following principles of universal design: 1) fair; 2) flexible; 3) easy and instinctive; and 4) labor-saving.
