How To Measure

There's nothing to it. Just follow our 3 easy steps below.

Step 1 - remove existing register

If possible, remove the existing register or grille. Correct register or grille sizing is achieved by measuring the actual opening in the wall, ceiling, or floor.

Step 2 - measure opening

The width is always expressed first, followed by the height.

Example: If the rough opening measures 20 inches wide by 14 inches tall, the correct size to order would be a 20"x14".

Interior imensions: The actual register or grille's interior dimensions will be slightly smaller, so the piece's frame and damper assembly fit into the recessed opening.

Outer dimensions: The actual register or grille's outer dimensions, or flange, will be larger. This will ensure the flange will fit flush on the finished surface and will completely cover the rough opening. This outer flange will house the various screw holes to securely attach the register or grille.

If you are unable to remove the existing register or grille, you will need to measure the outside of the existing piece. If this is the case, call us for assistance.

Step 3 - measure again

Measure twice. Order once!
