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.
These are wonderful, especially for the price point. The top of it is made of metal, and the bottom portion is made of plastic. I would not recommend them for areas where they would be stepped on all the time as they are a little filmsy and may break. You cannot change the direction of the air flow, you can only open/close it and this is done by a very small plastic lever which sometimes will get switched if you walk/vacuum/sweep over it. The look of them is great and helped update our house without a lot of money.
Rare nowadays, 12" register, looks very good on arrival. When blocking air flow uses two plastic panels that shift against each other, blocking the flow pretty good. However if you are looking for a register that inside uses fins, so that you could direct the air flow towards the wall or towards the room (as some other registers do) you should look somewhere else, this one is just blocking the air straight. Design is good but the holes are a little too big to my taste. Overall is a good item.
This is beautiful but breaks easily. I have a vent where there is traffic and the switch to regulate flow was broken off immediately. Also, go to the web site to see what the product looks like because the different widths change the look of the product. The wider the vent, the more detail it has. I have put 7 of these in my house. Only the one out in the open became damaged. If your vents are next to the wall, this is a very attractive vent that works well.
I found these in the big box stores, but they were cheaper on Amazon for the same exact product. Overall I am very pleased with them (I ordered 4). The only negative that I have is that they didn't sit "flat" to the floor. (They wobbled a little.) With some persuasion, we got them to sit right. I would definitely recommend.
Good aesthetic design. Thought the metal grate should be thicker since this is a floor vent that could be stepped on. The diverting mechanism under the grate is all plastic. So far that is not a problem. Wonder how that will wear over time.
I bought these as a replacement for some older brass Registers. Although they are not as heavy and well made as the originals (circa 1993), they are not bad. proper fit, fairly flush to the floor, nice looking. More of a matte bronzey-nickle than a chromey-nickle. Blends with the wood floor nicely.
