Skylight/Trap-door Opener Needed
A home owner from San Francisco, CA says:

I own a house with a center patio covered by a large skylight. There's a trap door to the roof towards the top of the patio. The door is high up and swings outward, with hinges at the top. It's loose and flaps loudly on windy days. Looking at the attached photo, could I attach a skylight operator to keep the door closed on windy days and open it with a pole handle on warm days?

Thanks for posting! Yes, it sounds like our 39-379 Skylight Operator would be a good choice for this application, but you should make sure you hire someone familiar with the installation of this hardware to help you out.
