Read the entire installation instructions before beginning your installation. Always observe all local building and safety codes. For the following installation instructions it is assumed there is an existing air duct opening for the floor or wall register.

For standard floor or wall registers, the louver frame fits into the air duct opening in the floor or wall, and the lip rests on the surface of the floor or wall. For flush-mount floor registers, the register fits completely into the floor with no lip.

TOOLS AND MATERIALS:

Phillips Screwdriver

Drill

Hammer
 
INSTALLING A STANDARD FLOOR REGISTER
 
   STEP 1  
     
  If the existing register is screwed to the floor, use a screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the register in place.  
     
 
   STEP 2  
     
  The louver frame will fit into the air duct opening, while the lip of the register will sit on top of the floor. In general, it is not necessary to secure the register to the floor.  
     
 
INSTALLING A FLUSH-MOUNT FLOOR REGISTER
 
   STEP 1  
     
  Position the flush mount frame over the duct opening, allowing even spacing on all four sides.  
     
 
   STEP 2  
     
  Drill a pilot hole inside the recessed area of the frame at an angle down into the sub-floor.  
     
 
   STEP 3  
     
  Carefully making sure that the frame has not shifted, use finishing nails to attach the register to the sub-floor.  
     
 
   STEP 4  
     
  Cut and fit your 3/4" wood flooring flush to all sides of the frame.  
     
 
   STEP 5  
     
  Insert vent cover into the frame. In general, it is not necessary to secure the register to the floor.
