What is a Slip Connector and how does it work?
A Slip Connector has a female end on one end and the rest of the pipe is like a male connector, slightly smaller than the regular inside dimension of stove pipe. It will telescope from 4″ to 16″ in another pipe. For instance; you have a 10″ standard snout from a tee off of a chimney liner. You want the stainless steel to be exposed for at least 2″. This will telescope inside the snout and you now have a pipe that will telescope from 14″ to 26″. Using a this connector makes easy work of installing stove pipe, there is no cutting involved.
If you need more than 16″ of extension, you can easily attach a section of rigid chimney liner on the end of the slip connector.
The slip connectors are available in stainless steel for connection to a chimney liner and also in 22 gauge black steel for use with stove pipe.
Use of this product is the easiest possible way to extend the length of the snout on a liner, simpler to use than a snout that is 22″ or longer.
