How to properly install vent grilles so that they stay in place?
I decided to rip out all the old cheap, painted over vent grilles, in my house, and bought pretty antique bronze ones, which according to my measurements, fit exactly into the openings in the drywall. However, none of the grilles wants to stay in. It's not the screw-into-the-wall kind, so they should 'supposedly' just click into the duct work, but the duct work isn't perfectly square and the little plastic holders are flimsy. I am looking for suggestions on the best way to make sure they stay put. Has anyone else run into this issue?
