Our house was built in 1961. As such our heat registers (grilles) are mounted directly on the wall above the baseboard, they are branded on the front "General Electric Air Wall Register". These actually sit over the hole and stand off the wall about an 1". Several of these original heat registers were still intact and had not been replaced. I was able to easily restore them. I'm looking for 4 more these to complete our house.

If anyone has these stored somewhere I would be willing to buy them from you for a fair price. OR if you can recommend something similar that measures 15" X 6" X 1" or a little larger.

Wow. Not sure if you'll ever get this since your post was a couple of years ago. I have the same ones in my house. I restored eight and need one more. Did you ever find one?

I gave up looking... I galled G.E. as well and checked all the local rehouse shops for a a couple of years.

If someone posts some for sale, I'll still take 3 if I can get 'em.

Hello. Not sure if anyone is still following this thread but I have a house full of these registers and I am desparately looking for a way to remove them so I can clean out the ducts. I can't seem to figure out a way that they come off. If anyone knows please shoot me a message. If I can get them off properly I am willing to sell them if anyone is still interested. I have 10 in my house.

Any one know where I can find mounting clips for these registers? I lost one of mine, and I'd rather find one than try to fabricate one! Thanks!

FINALLY! I know this is about acquiring these vents, but finding help removing is not easy. Thanks to crljenak for confirming that the middle fin comes out. I thought it was something like that, but was afraid to pry too hard. So, here's the secret. The top of the middle vent pulls out and then the whole thing pivots down and off. I actually had to push the middle vent and bend the 2 little pieces of metal along the top a bit to loosen the fin up enough for it to pull free. I'm posting a pic so you can see the bracket on top backside.

I have one of these and seven of the type shown in the picture (using the knob as the air volume adjustment rather than the pull chain). If you are interested please contact me at 444tre444its@444gma444il.444com444.

I just bought a house with these registers in it. They do not have a chain or a knob and when I took one off the wall it had no backing to it. It looks as though the just stay open all the time. Guessing maybe the original owners of the home didn't care. They are all different colors and I would possibly sell them for a reasonable amount. If you are interested just email me at pookyliar@aol

Hello all! We just bought a 1953 house that's got these great vent covers. We are hoping to find a few more with or without the knob (just no chains) to complete the look.  Is anyone selling right now?

I am desperately seeking 7 of the ge air wall registers to complete my 1950’s home. I refinished all the ones I had like the picture. Please text me at 330-701-6943 with any available for a reasonable price!


06:14PM | 11/15/18
I have about 9 of those old style ones we are going to replace. Don’t know how get them out of wall. Any thoughts please.


02:23PM | 11/17/18
My house was built in 1957 and has these registers throughout.

They looked hideous when we first moved in. 12 coats of paint (an estimate) over 70 years will do that. But stripping the paint off was well worth the work involved.

Why would anyone paint them? What were people thinking in the 1970s? (based on some of the paint colors they used)

One question, has anyone considered getting their cleaned up registers plated? There’s a place nearby that will do a brushed nickel plating for a reasonable price. I’m wondering if it would be worth it.

We have one (see photo). Please email if interested.


02:42PM | 07/30/20
Now in the world do these things come off?

I've read above, something about "pulling the middle plate off?" but it's not making sense to me.
Ours are the ones with the knob, and they have no visible screw holes. I can see a screw in each side, behind the small fin (not the big center). No way to reach them. Nothing appears to pop off, but the one I tried had a lot of paint on it. Please post here.


05:56PM | 09/05/20
I have a 1950's home that has these registers. white ge airwall registers. I'd love to accumulate a few spare ones, as a few are really rusting (bathroom). Hate to have to replace any with modern register covers.

Hoping someone has 10 registers they would want to sell. Preferably with chain but would also take knob. Please text me at 4196127979
