Been dealing with ceiling vents held in by screws for six years now. Changing filters has always been a major ordeal and hard on the neck. Over time the anchor threads stripped out and I had to substitute sheet rock screws. My brother told me he replaced his with hinged vents so I searched for and found these. Not found at my local Lowe's (have to special order them and pay shipping) or Home Depot (also requires special order, long wait and nearly twice the price.)
Installation is not too bad once you throw away the screws that come with the kit. I used star head deck screws to install mine. Installed two of these. On one of them I found it necessary to remove a metal rim enclosing the opening in the ceiling so that the grill insert would fit.
Now changing filters is a breeze and will accept the standard furnace filters. Before I had to cut filters to size from bulk material. Can't wait until it's time to change filters again.
I ordered the 12" x 12" and the 20" x 20" sizes of these to replace two return grilles that were held on by screws. The bigger one had 8 screws holding it on the wall, and having to unscrew them and screw them back in every time I changed the air filter got to be really old -- especially after nearly 20 years. These grilles will make it much easier to replace the filters, and I wish I had gotten them sooner. I had some trouble getting the smaller one in because the grille seemed slightly too big for the metal duct opening, but with considerable persuasion and a little damage to the grille I was able to get it in. The damage, which was the only thing that allowed me finally to get the grille to go in, doesn't affect the operation of the grille, and it isn't really noticeable. The bigger grille went in easily and quickly.
Well, it worked for me. I bought a house that had a 20x24 intake vent. I don't know if it was ever a popular size, but it surely isn't now. I knew there was room in the rough opening, and when one of the metal clasps broke off of the old one, it went to the scrap yard. This one took its place. The only drawback is that this one is "shallow", and the screws go in between the drywall and the ceiling framing. I did some modifying. Very happy. Now I don't have to pay a fortune for a single filter.
