Identify Ceiling Grids
We have a basement room with a dropped ceiling made of 2X4 grids. I want to put in new 2X2 tiles in that room. The existing grid is in fine shape and does not need to be replaced. I'm having trouble getting 2 ft Tees for it. The existing Tees have an approximate 1 inch tongue that is bent at 90 degrees from the length of the Tee that slides into a pair of raised grooves in the companion Tee. Most of the Tees I have tried fit into a slot in the companion Tee. There are no slots in my grid. Bending the ends of those Tees does not work, resulting in the new Tee being as much as 1/8 inch lower than the rest of the grid work.
Ideas on the brand of grid I have or what to get for the 2 ft Tees?
