If you mean the space in-between it then all you do is rotate it down. They are pretty tough sometimes after a few years of not being used but that middle piece (loover) should rotate to change the opening and direction of heat rise.

No, that's not the problem. It seems as if the slat itself is not locking into the exposed metal part.

You may be able to bend it or snap it down over the bottom edge of that tab? I can’t say for sure

Chances are they are slid in from the end when manufactured but now that they are in place its going to be pretty impossible to do that likely?

Fixed it. Just slid it out, realigned it and slid it back in. Thanks for responses.
