Drop Ceiling Question
I have my grid laid out and now have my ac vent coming out of the ceiling. It is in the middle of a cross tee. I do not know how to cut the cross tee and still have it secure with the vent in the middle.

Hello AllWorld:
It would probably be eaiser to move the vent. Seal up the present one and cut another in the duct where it comes out in the center of a tile. If recutting is not possible, use flex duct to redirect the vent.

There is a duct system that comes in 3"X10" X 2' that will fit in that space and allow an offset. It will restrict the flow some but it is better than nothing.
