Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sgdcover Easy to install and a great fit.
Would be helpful if the length of the tabs that grab on to the sheetrock edge where size-adjustable. I have thick sheetrock and couldn't get the tabs to fit as designed. I had to force them into the sheetrock itself to grab on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James Return air vent filter grille
The return filter housing was a near perfect fit. Installed high quality filters. Super easy to change out. If I ever purchase another home, I will definitely install these.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emmi Looks great!
It is very easy to install and it fits perfectly into the duct opening. The measurement 20" x 20" is the size of the opening of the duct, not the width and height of the grille edge to edge. The grille itself is probably an addition 1.5" all along the edge.
I also purchased the "True Blue 20 in. x 20 in. x 1 in. Allergen & Pet Protection Air Filter 4-pack." It fits perfectly and stays in place, so when you open the grille to change the filter, it doesn't fall down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by james great buy !
I was very surprised as to the sturdines of construction. Very solid ! Easy instalation even with having to "modify" my rough opening. The only draw back in my view is that the open/closeure hasps are a weak point. IE: just be careful with them and do not force. Overall this is a good product for the money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerrylee Much tighter fit than my old filter housing.
I bought this on planning on upgrading to 2" thick filters, but this grill has tabs you can bend in to use 1". The 20x20s fit WAY better in this grill VS my old one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karen ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!
This is possibly one of the finest, most practical purchases I've ever made "house wise".
My right arm was severely broken by thugs (I'm a female) on Feb. 6th, 2009 and I've had several surgeries and even at this point, May of 2012, I can't even vacuum due to the injury.
I'm one of those "clean freak" people and being such, actually go even beyond those of us that pull the fridge and stove out every time the floor gets mopped or hops up to clean the top of the cabinets. I actually wipe out and vauum my DUCT WORK.
I have an electric air cleaner also, which is accessible ONLY through the air return vent.
For me, working with the old one was BEGGING to get injured as I had to climb up on a ladder, unscrew it, hold it carefully as it was heavy and made of sharp metal (sharp UGLY metal, I might add).
With THIS WONDERFUL PRODUCT all I have to do is undo two little "clippy" things.... easier than opening a window! Not kidding!
Also, it's paint ready, if you opt to do so.
It isn't QUITE as easy to install as it says. BUT THAT IS TO BE EXPECTED. NOBODY'S DUCT work is going to be shaped into a perfect 20 x 20 opening (like mine). You have to hammer the duct work inset a bit and kind of shove the SpeediGrille in, then, if desired, use self tapping screws to secure it's frame firmly (I've not done the latter, no need, it's just fine the way it is).
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I could sell it ALL DAY LONG.
I'm gong to be honest, I've already written the company about employment opportunities AND am going to contact my own HVAC people regarding this product.
It should be noted that I worked with HVAC for many years and know HVAC well. Therefore, my review is REALLY A SOLID "to be taken seriously" review. I LOVE IT.
BUY IT!!! Don't hesitate for a second and DON'T BUY AN IMITATION brand! DON'T!
This product actually SHOULD sell for A LOT more than Home Depot sells it for. YIPES! That being said, maybe I'd better buy a stock of various sizes just in case I need one for a future home!
The very day I found the SpeediGrille on Home Depot's page, I was getting ready to purchase a cherry wood air return grill from another company for $349.00 (high price, YES! BUT they will install!).
The reason for the option of the cherry wood grill is that the air return is on the ceiling by my lving room and was obnoxious looking.
The SpeediGrille ISN'T obnoxious just right out of the box BUT YOU CAN finish it if you want.
I love it! Type as fast as you can to the check out in your Home Depot shopping cart for this product!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wingman Makes Changing Filters Much Easier
Purchased this to solve a ridiculous situation in my rental. Previously, a simple grill was screwed to the ceiling, above which a one inch filter was shoved into the framed enclosure. Making matters worse, the opening was framed 20 x 19.75. Therefore, filters wouldn't even fit in there properly. The nightmarish process of removing and reinstalling the grill was enough to discourage tenants from changing the filter on a timely basis. After chiseling the opening to measure a true 20x20, this return air cabinet installed simply. What's nice too, is the cover can be hinged on any of the four sides to work as easily as possible. Now, changing filters is super easy and requires no tools, besides!
