Re: Kitchen Problem
I think you'll find that once you've got the register adjusted so that it doesn't blow out your cooktop, you won't be messing with it anymore. If you do end up having to adjust it regularly, then I would suggest installing a short pull/push rod on the actuator lever which will eliminate the need to pull out a step stool for the duty.
There are all kinds of things that can be repurposed for the push rod, such as a length of wire coat hanger, bronze or brass welding rod, a blind actuator rod, etc. You could also probably cut a hook in the end of a yard stick (do they stil make those? ) or similar piece of wood.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
