Baseboard Register or Sleestak

The gravity baseboard register is a familiar fixture in old homes, especially in bungalows from the Arts & Crafts period. However, for decades the gravity-style baseboard register was out of production, extinct if you will. Finding suitable replacements in a salvage yard was like searching for fossils in a dinosaur dig. But unlike the dinosaur (which will never return) or the Sleestak (which never really existed), the gravity baseboard register is back from the land of the lost. And you won't need Chaka's help to find them. Mission Metalworks now manufacturers historically accurate gravity style baseboard registers. Find them online at Shop 4 Classics.
