Our flaps while driving as well. Very annoying.

Although I haven't tried it, my friend sys to superglue your favorite silver dollar to the outside therefore causing enough weight to close the vent when not in use.

vent flap magnet picture

This is the magnet I used, I glued it in the opening flush with the door, then on the door I glued a thin piece of metal a small washer would work or a piece of metal foil tape type used in duct work may work. I said if the metal fell off i may try the tape. These are small enough you could use two I got mine off Ebay they are for a alarm system on a window

vent magnet

Here is picture of magnet, I know there are people out there doubting this works but does on mine traveling and parked no more ladder or stick.This fan is so strong if I left latches closed flap would bow out in middle when turned on. I glued a very thin metal washer on the flap with gorilla super glue then I used J B quick weld to glue a spacer of wood on inside duct to bring magnet up higher then use the J B to glue magnet to spacer.All you have to do is offset the magnet the thickness of the washer and the flap is tight against the flange I think even two magnets would still let fan blow it open.
