To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's extremely poor quality at a high price. The plastic and metal parts are barely connected and will likely break apart soon. The actual design is nothing but sharp edges, my daughter cut her foot when she accidentally stepped on it. And i almost cut my finger when trying to flip the tab to open the vent. It's LOUD, even with the vent fully open. The airflow is loud and it makes an obnoxious whistling noise. All in all I'm not satisfied with this product at all. Only purchased it because our 20 year old one finally broke and I needed something quickly. I will be making a run later this week to the hardware store to pick up a $3 all metal one that is MUCH better quality.
Don't purchase this product if you expect air to flow through it. If you just want it to enhance your decor, it will do that. But these registers DO NOT have the typical open/close louvers; the kind with two or three vanes that rotate open or closed and are the full length of the register. These have two interlocking plastic grids, one that is stationary, one that slides. They overlap so that one frame blocks the openings in the other frame; like if you held up two overlapping combs and slid them back and forth so one blocks the light passing through the other.
Needless to say, when these registers are fully open, much more than 50% of the register area is blocked by this framework. This GREATLY restricts the air flow. You can barely feel anything flowing out of them. Remove them from the duct and the air just whistles by. I'm surprised the air pressure doesn't lift the register off the floor.
The problem is that you cannot see from the pictures that this is the type of register you're getting. I didn't return these because Lowes and HD had the same style of registers so I didn' think I had any choice. But YOU DO! I found the correct type at trademarkinductriesinc dot com. AT HALF THE PRICE OF THESE!
Update: One already fell apart after just 6 months. Not in a traffic area. The cover separated from the body. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET FOR $17!!!!
