    Yeah, unless you do something else yourself it just hangs out where ever you put it.

Another thing to consider is that, at least in Ohio, I have warm air blowing a little over 1/4 mile away when I use the block heater for ~2 hours. I'm guessing that would be an even bigger selling point in Canada.
    I suppose a car that heats up quick in the winter would be nice hahaha

    I've got install instructions that came with the block heaters we bought from the dealer. I could try to post them if anyone wants.

    Looks like the dealer kit comes with a couple nice things my kit from NAPA didn't (straps and protective cap).

    I made a video from the install of mine, if you're interested. It's on another thread, but I'll post it here too. https://youtu.be/A4xbJNbEH2c
