looks nice. Not sure it's really necessary but it looks nice.

Agree, it does look nice. You did a good job on the design.

Also agree it probably isn't 100% necessary. The plug is designed for the rain and snow. On the other hand, it does stop snow from building up as an annoyance.

That does look nice! I'm glad I found this, as that's much simpler than the one I was thinking of making. Living in Northern Missouri, I can say that this is 100% a good idea for someone in the Midwest who can't get the car out of the weather. Not two days after I bought my FFE we had rain that turned into snow, and the water got into the mechanism for the little peg deal on which the flap is mounted and froze. Nearly broke the darn thing trying to close - much less open - it when I got home.
