What is a Slip Connector
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″. The slip connector will telescope inside the snout and you now have a pipe that will telescope from 14″ to 26″. Using a slip 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.
The use of a slip connector is the easiest possible way to extend the length of the snout on a liner. A slip connector is simpler to use than a snout that is 22″ or longer.
