Air snake
Kind Code:

(Air Snake) would simply be attached to any floor air vent that has a piece of furniture above it With the use of Air Snake, furniture could be placed in any location in a room without the flow of air being restricted. As Air Snake would attach to floor vents magnetically, it would be easy to remove them and attach them to a different vent when furniture is rearranged. The adjustability and flexibility of the hose on Air Snake would allow Air Snake to be customized to the particular need so that airflow is directed as desired and the Air Snake is not lying out in the open. The use of Air Snake would be very beneficial in any room in a home and could also be used in offices, stores, schools, and other business and institutions.

The embodiments of the invention in which an exclusive property or privilege is claimed to be as follows:

1. An in home or commercial building of the introduction of a concept known as Air Snake, which would be able of redirecting the airflow from an HVAC floor air vent. Air Snake would attach magnetically to the air vent for a secure fit. The air flowing through the vent would continue through the adjustable, flexible hose of air snake.


The part of Air Snake that would attach to the air vent would have a rectangular design. The approximate dimensions would be 10 inches in length, 4 inches in width, and 1½ inches in height. The entire length of Air Snake would be approximately 30 to 32 inches. A flexible and adjustable hose would be attached to the air vent cover and this tube would be approximately 10 inches wide and 1½ inches in height. Air Snake would be constructed from various materials including metal, magnets, and plastic.
