Attaching corner bead


We just drywalled the ceiling in my daughter's basement, and on the bottom edge of the soffit, there is about an 18" span(at the end of an inside corner) where the corner bead cannot be screwed in. There is no wood to attach it to because there is a HVAC duct there. Any advice? Will it be OK, or should I use adhesive under the bead there? Thanks.

Not a great plan to have unsupported drywall, far more likely to crack.
If I had to do it I would use this.

If not that then the metal backed paper tape made by the same company.

Thanks Joe. Why would that be better than the metal backed paper tape? And both of those can be used on outside corners?

What do you guys think about using the spray adhesive, staples, and vinyl corner bead?

I have used all the above and must say I like them all. I think for this app. I would prefer the vinyl bead using spray adhesive and stables only because I think it would be a little more ridgid. You really should have framed around the duct with 1x just to have something to attach too.

Thanks. I did frame around the duct, just not under it(about 18"). If I use vinyl bead on this soffit, I should use it for the other soffit too, correct? Because the 2 soffits meet at an inside corner.

I don't guess it would really matter but I would. I mean your going to have the stables, glue, why not use them.

Thanks. The vinyl bead seems so flimsy. How do I keep it in a straight line as I attach it?

Mark a straight line with a pencil.

Joe's correct use a level to get it straight then mark with a pencil. Then glue and stable it to the line.
