The patented panel is a relatively lightweight aluminum structure that is fit around a sidewalk vent grate that has integral hooks that engage the bars of the grate and when dialed in compress the perimeter gasket around the vent cover making a water seal preventing flooding into the vent structure.  They are meant to be quickly installed in a line prior to the flood event and then easily removed for reuse and storage.
