Default Rear seat side vent

Got a ? for everyone regarding the rear seat side vents. Mine are pretty difficult to open. Is that typical?

While I don't want them opening/closing at any small gust of wind, should they move freely or only with force?

Some effort - yes. I never put a handle on mine as I did not see the need, but others have.

Mine are just right. Easy enough for my toddler to open, but sticky enough that they don't blow open on their own. I do have the handle extensions on them as part of the Aerosport interior panel set.

Default 3D Print?

Anybody have, maybe, a 3D print solution for the RV10 rear side vents? I'm thinking maybe something like what Aerosport has but without the whole panel.

Mine are fixed closed. The NACA vents feeding the overhead console provides all the cool air needed.
