Hi can anyone help me?

I live in a 6th floor apartment, and the dryer vent outside my window whose metal 'flap' slams shut and squeaks like mad! I understand that the 'flap' is to prevent birds from nesting there.

My problem is the squeak. It is about 6ft above my window, so I can't reach it to put some wd40 on it. there's no ladder possibilities either, as it is soooo high up.

Is there some kind of extenda-luber that I can buy that will reach that far?

Anyone have any thoughts?

Im to the point that Im gonna get one of those white noise machines to drown it out....seems like a cop out though

Great Idea...the more people I talk to about it, the more I hear that they have the same problem. Hopefully the building will do something soon.....or I'll chuck a cup of lubricant up at the vent....

thanks again
