Nutone Bathroom Vent Cover Replacement:

I basically take my bathroom vents for spring cleaning with soap and brushes then rinse them off. The Nutone fan clips break after about 2 -3 years so i usually buy a new cover. But a few years ago, i just started repairing them with Nashua Aluminum foil tape and hot glue.

The foil tape is used to make a new clip to hold spring latch. The foil tape is cut into 1/4 inch pieces in 1 inch and 1/2 inch. The 1/2 inch is used to cover the adhesive side touching the spring latch. I place the spring latch back into position then tape over it with the foil tape. The tape adheres to the vent surface. Hot glue is used to reinforce the foil tape.

This DIY will last for years, and the spring latch will no longer fall off the vent cover. If your spring latch needs to be replaced, the foil and hot glue can be removed with a knife.
