I have a drop ceiling that I am going to be running some wires and my projector mount into. Instead of just cutting a hole in the tile and leaving it unfinshed I want to get a bezel or a trim ring, like for recessed lights, to give it a finished look. I went to a ghetto Lowes on my lunch hour, but no one seemed to be able to help. What is the best thing to use in this situation? Thanks D

So, the mount will be running through the dropped ceiling?

You could maybe look in plumbing for a PVC drain flange. Or, I've seen A/C vents that are merely a flanged hole in the ceiling.

Or if you really want to get fancy, you could go over to lighting and look at ceiling medallions:

Look in the wiring section of your hardware store. Look for a computer grommet or something like that. They go upto three inches in size and are friction fit to match a cutout done with a hole saw, which is basically a large round drill bit type system. Modifying the light flange might be cheaper though.
