Crimp the duct with pliers enough so they are a snuger fit and/or slather some silicone caulk on them before you push them in.

Construction Adhesive caulk. Make sure you put it in your ears. Hopefully if will piece your broken brain back together. Bubba

Bend up some metal angle clips from scrap metal (old ductwork would be good) and Tek screw them to the sides of the duct. Sheetmetal screws hold the register to the clips.
