installing floor register boot ?
2 Attachment(s)
this boot was moved to a better location. it was already bent for the screws. so i used it as is. see pics. but this somehow doesn't seem to be the proper way of doing it. what is the correct way ? i need to put one in another bedroom. and i want to do it correctly.

It inserts from the bottom up, and then is screwed fast to the sides.

Bring the metal up through the floor and then bend it over instead of it being bent over under the floor. If the metal is not long enough buy another boot with a longer throat.
