Plastic floor register covers

So we picked up our new 2018 Rockwood 8311WS three days ago and I have been trying to find something to prevent dirt, debris (and all kinds of crap basically) from falling into the floor registers. In our old TT we had metal registers and used the magnetic protectors. I've searched the forums (maybe I'm not doing it right) but surprisingly, haven't found anything on the subject. I thought about unscrewing the registers and blocking them from below, but they are too deep and that won't work. I haven't come up with what I would consider a "good" solution, so I'm wondering if anyone else has.
Thank you in advance,

Charlie

Go to Lowe’s and buy metal registers. Now your magnetic covers will stick!
Works for me.

Take one out and take it to the store as see what matches up.

Tape screen wire over the bottom of the new metal registers.

I just pick up a vacuum attachment at the local flea market. It has a bunch of long fingers on it. Fits right into the heat vents to clean them without any problems. Works on ice maker fan, ac vent , key board, all kind of stuff.

Vent filters

This is what I put in my floor vents last year. Just unscrew the vents and place filter in opening and reattach vent. May need to trim a bit but traps any dirt from falling in to duct.

Thanks for your reply. I've been doing some hunting (on Amazon) and actually found some dampened and undampened brown metal registers that have the screw holes 11" on center, which is exactly what I need. Just trying to decide if I want to go with the dampened ones that I can close off, or the undampened ones and use the magnetic covers. I'm leaning toward dampened.....

The plastic ones are also available, dampened or not dampened. The dampeners will not prevent things from falling through the grate but will stop things from getting in the duct. Of course, metal may be the way to go.

The powder coated (brown) metal ones look nicer than the plastic ones, and I'm really more concerned about keeping debris out of the duct. We can always run a vacuum cleaner over the closed register, is where I'm at right now.....
