Weep Hole Cover

A quick learner from South Florida says:
I have an opening in my sliding window that is approximately 2" wide on the outside, the inside is harder to measure as it is below the window track. My question is are weep hole covers normally placed on the inside or outside. I'm not sure I can place a cover on the outside as the window already has a built in 'Hood' over the opening, is this in lieu of a weep hole cover?

Does that make sense, if not I can send photos.

Thanks

Hmm... hard to say. Based on your description, then chances are it has a hood, so you won't be able to put a weep cover on. However, I'd like to see pictures of the opening just to be sure.

Unfortunately it doesn't appear you'd be able to install a weep hole cover here.
