Just had our floors redone and our metal registers were a mess. I thought these would be a nice change and would match our floors. They matched perfectly. Unlike the box store models these are made of Wood and finished in Poly. The underside is black plastic with an adjustable sliding register, also in plastic.

The fit wasn't as good as the metal registers. They were loose and I put padding in the register cutout to tighten up the fit a bit. They also stick up about a ½ inch from the floor unlike the metal registers that were flush. This is important to note in case you need to place furniture or have an area that is close to a travel area. Due to the variance in grain and finish I did have to move the registers around for the best match to our floors. This is not a negative but meant to make you aware that depending on the finish and grain of your floor, the registers may not match perfectly. I was lucky. Of the several I bought I was able to match up really close for each location. The finish of the registers is pretty good and the wood used in each register matches closely. The wood fins can be a bit rough and might be a splinter issue. We haven't moved in yet but I see my 20 month old playing with our metal register and know I will need to pay close attention to these registers once we move in.

The adjustable plastic register vent works but does not lock in place and often slides to the closed or open position! You will not be able to use them to balance your rooms because it doesn't lock in place. Some type of detent would have worked but they have a smooth glide instead preventing them from locking in place. I actually had to remove them for a few locations so I could get them to fit in two 2 x10 locations I had. It made no difference for me because I try to leave all the registers open fully. I have to go around and makes sure the register are open fully though as they will move to the open or closed positions. The wood slates are not adjustable but are evenly spaced and move air to the left and right. In some situations you may only want the air to move to move to one direction and you will not be able to do so with these units. I had two areas with registers close to a corner I would have liked to been able to adjust them to blow away from the wall.

They look nice in place and I think add to the look floor. If the plastic adjustable register and fit better were better I would have given them a five. For now they work and are real wood with a decent finish. I purchased the 2 x 10 and 4 x 10 units and felt the price was good. I added pictures to show finished installation.

I bought these in 2005. The louvers are wooden and slide into a groove in the frame so they are fragile and break easily. I am replacing mine in 2011 with a solid wooden grate with a metal louver beneath from another company.

These are beautiful and work great with my hardwood floors, I only wish they were thinner and didnt stand up so tall. They are easy to trip over.

We have had this type of cover for several years. A couple of them broke. We put one of them back together with carpenter's glue, but the other was too much of a bother, so we bought one. This new one is plastic underneath rather than metal, and we don't know yet if it will hold up as well, or better, or worse than the old ones.
As most register covers do, this one does not screw in; it simply drops in. Our 2 year old grandson has discovered this wonderful characteristic and has had to be told several times not to drop things down the big hole! So beware if you have curious little people in your house.
In terms of appearance, the new one looks like the old ones from the top. Our floors are laminate (Wilsonart) and the cover matches very well indeed. I do agree with other reviewers that the picture looks much darker than the actual product.
If we have any sort of good or bad experience with the plastic vs. metal, we will update our review.
P.S. Shipping from amazon.com was, as always, incredibly fast.

I was getting these floor registers expressly for baby-proofing our house. I intended to screw them into our hardwood floor, so that our little one wouldn't be able to pull them out. I was willing to put a metal screen under the damper box to catch anything that our little one would throw down the vents.

Alas, the workmanship on these vents is so poor that they are unusable for us. Specifically, the edges of the slanted ribs are extremely sharp. They were not rounded over and sanded smooth before finishing. Imagine a toddler sticking his fingers in there. Also, the surfaces of the ribs haven't been sanded at all, it seems, and are very rough. They are also not finished.

Having said that, I assume that these vent covers will work fine when there are no adventurous kids around.

I bought this for my mom, who lives several hours away. The first one I ordered was the wrong size--I requested a return and the shipping company was at her door the next day. On day 3, the correct sized item (this one) arrived and she is VERY happy. She tells me it is a perfect fit, works exactly as she wants it to and is only slightly lighter in color than the quarter-sawn oak floor. We are very happy and will definitely purchase this product again, should she need more. I gave it 4 stars only because it hasn't been in use long enough to judge how well it's going to hold up.

A nice product that is certainly an improvement over the metal (one color fits all) floor grate. However, because it is wood product, it sits up twice as high off the floor as a metal grate would. It therefore is much more noticeable as an obstacle on the floor and you are more inclined to step over it. However for color, it blends very well with my hardwood floors.

These are just want we needed! We replaced the metal registers since we now have a red oak floor in our kitchen. They fit perfectly in the 2 x 14 in. spaces.

I bought it to put it in an indoor bathroom door. I had a problem with the ventilation of the bathroom and I put it to make air coming in with an air extractor.
I solved the ventilation problem with this item. The floor register is the same color of my bathroom door.
I am much pleasured with this purchase.
