More info (picture) would help.
I don't understand why you are 'applying cleats'.
Are you not using round duct?

Installing a fan in a basement bathroom using 4" ducts


Hello
Yes I am using round 4" duct the reason I have the cleats is the Home Depot where I bought the duct said that I should put on cleats so , I bought them not knowing what in the hell I'm doing. But I have the receipts so I can always return them. One other question for you when attaching duct work to fan does it go on the outside of the plastic mount on the fan and should I put self tapping screws to hold the duct work to the fan unit?
Thank You
Ian Morandin

Yes, the duct goes over the plastic mount.
You can use screws, but be very careful where you put them.
Inside the plastic mount is a back-draft damper. Watch that the screws don't interfere with its movement.

Use a 4 1/2 inch clamp around the duct. They sell them right next to the metal duct and bathroom vents..
