range vent chatter

I have a vent cap for the range that chatters mercilessly any time the wind blows. Is there a quieter brand or any tips on how to quiet it?

Re: range vent chatter

i've tried two things, both have worked. one is to get a small magnet, if it's a metal vent cap and stick it on the inside of the flap, just make sure it's small enough to allow the flap to open and heavy enough to keep it down in the wind. the second thing i've done is attached a small 1" piece of thin, trimmed down weather stripping, attach the sticky side to the flap at the bottom so that when it does bang back and forth it is cushioned by the weather stripping.
