    What's the best way to hold a round air vent while securing the backing screw? My DW vent has a nyloc backing screw that I can only tighten so much before the vent starts spinning. I used a 1/4" allen wrench inside to vent to hold it, but once I hit the nylon in the bolt it started spinning.

    I seem to remember that it was a less common metric sized hex wrench that holds it in place. I remember taking the vent to the hardware store to find one that fit snugly.
