The Vent Cover is an item in The Escapists. It is found covering all vents at the start of the game. The Vent Cover can only be removed with either a Screwdriver, a Powered Screwdriver, a Plastic Knife, Cutting Floss, or a File or Cutters. The Vent Cover can be placed back over a vent at 5% durability, allowing it to be removed with one use of a tool that can remove it. If your cell is searched and causes you to be sent Solitary, the Vent Cover will be restored to 100% durability.
