Answer: 
That is the most difficult part of mounting this new cover. Many old exhaust fans are made differently inside so it is not as easy to replace the old cover if the unit is very old. I would recommend taking the old cover off first to see exactly how the old cover is attached. Then look at the new screw that comes with this vent cover to see if it will fit into the old exhaust fan in the center. Make sure Read More

Make sure to measure the length of the screw so the new vent cover fits flat next to the ceiling after the cover is screwed into the old exhaust fan. Read Less

Answer: 
Thank you for your question about this replacement grille. This unit installs with a thumb screw in the center of the cover. This is not a ‘spring’ styled grille. If you have further questions, just dial 888-336-6151 and our Technical Support Department can assist you. Thanks, again.

Answer: 
We do not sell grilles by size but rather based on the model number of the fan. This is because while 2 grilles may be the same size, they might use different means of attaching to the fans. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 888-336-3948 for assistance in determining the correct replacement grille for your fan.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect We have an older home, built in 1959. The fan doesn't work but I wanted to replace the cover. This fits perfectly, screw is exactly the same size as the old, original mounting. ❤️ August 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It worked! I did not go to "boy school" so my explanation of our problem is a poor excuse for how my husband was able to make this cover work. My husband is a genius! Our exhaust fan (1982) had a screw welded into the bracket inside the old fan and the pin that held the old vent cover was hollow as it fit over the metal screw. My husband (bless his heart) had to drill the hole bigger on the new cover and he also had to remove the old welded metal screw inside because it was too long inside the old exhaust fan. Using the old hollow screw cover, he rigged somehow the old bracket and the old hollow screw cover to make the new cover work! Yes..... he is brilliant! April 15, 2015
