    I have some single wall stove pipe. the side seam is not closed on it. is there a trick to snapping this together ?? I am getting frustrated [​IMG]
    also does the crimped end go up or down ? I have seen it both ways on different sites
    thanks

    Left side seam of the pipe fits or slips into the right side grooves. Hubby always puts some screws in to help keep it together. We use two pieces of pipe and an elbow in the middle. Ours crimps are always one on the bottom into the stove and the other crimped piece goes into the flue. Hope you understand.

    Quote:If the pipe touches wood any where be sure and use the triple walled pipe so you won't set your house on fire.

    this is only the interior pipe. everything going in the attic is the triple wall

    does the crimped end go up or down

    The crimp goes down, so the upper pieces fit inside the lower pieces.

    That keeps liquid from running out​
