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.

Cheers,

Marcus

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?

Thanks!

I need one of the pull chain style. I found a supplier for the chain and bell. My house was built in 1958. We are trying to replicate the style of the original house.

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.
