Connecting 3.25 x 10' rectangular duct

I'm trying to bring ceiling heat registers down to ground level and am running 3.25" x 10" duct in between studs to the register. I have to cut a 5 ft section of the rectangular duct and attach it to another to have the proper length. I have S cleats to connect the long edges but I'm confused as to what to do with the sides of the duct. The 3.25" sides of the duct are straight. Do I bend the sides back to form a flange and then put a drive cleat to connect them? The drive cleats at HD are 10" however. What type of tool do you need to connect rectangular duct? Also do you use machine screws to reinforce the s cleat connection? Thanks

It should have come with button lock ends.
Or with button lock stock.

Go back to where you got it from and get some.
