screws for baseboard register

Hello! I was replacing a baseboard register and the new one didnt come with screws and the old one was nailed into place. I was wondering what the best screws were for this project or if the length of the screw mattered. Thanks!

Hi MadCow7,

The register was probably nailed into place because the screw mounts were stripped or broken off. Check to see what condition they are in, if usable try different screw sizes until you find one that fits the thread on the mount and is long enough to hold the register in place. These are normally a size 8 or 10 sheet metal screw, usually 2 to 4 inches long.
