Simply measure and cut L Bead, then tuck the return leg of the bead behind the sides of the vent to dry fit. Install L Bead with 847 Spray Adhesive and then staple every 4-6" with 1/2" staples.


By installing L Bead around a recessed vent it acts as a barrier between the rough edge of the drywall and the interior of the vent, preventing excess dust from entering into the HVAC system.
