Our woodstove has an 8 inch chimney vent pipe. Would this HomeSaver Guardian 8 inch diameter California mesh 304-alloy stainless steel chimney cap work for our unit? We need a cover for the top of the pipe but we're not sure which one will fit something like what we are using.

Answer:Yes, this cap will work for a single-wall pipe with an 8" inside diameter.

I've recently purchased an 8 inch HomeSaver Pro Guardian Cap (8", 304 SS, 5/8" mesh). It seems like I also need a chimney collar. I've attached a picture of the top of the chimney for reference. Could you tell me what additional parts I need to order to securely fasten the chimney cap?
By Brennan W. on October 31, 2016
Answer:There is no collar that would allow for a different installation to this pipe. Also, since your pipe is air cooled and not insulated, the cap you purchased would not work for your installation.

Does this one 8 inch pipe come with the lid cover part 15 inch?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 27, 2014
Answer:It is possible to request a version of this unit with a larger lid for different applications. However, if your inner chimney wall is 8 inches and the outer is 15 inches, it is likely that you have an air cooled chimney. Use of this type of chimney cap could cause the chimney to overheat.

Is the 8" dimension the diameter of the bottom part that attaches to the existing flue pipe?
By eFireplaceStore on November 18, 2014
Answer:That is precisely correct. The 8 inch leg can compress slightly to allow you to push it into the vent pipe. It will then spring back open for a tight fit when installed.

I have an Amerivent 8 FB double wall pipe with 8" ID inner liner. Will this cap fit this? It looks close to what was in there. My pipe was installed in 1983.
By Chris on March 13, 2014
Answer:This cap is indeed a universal replacement cap for double wall solid packed insulated Class A chimney pipe. It is designed as a friction fit, so there will be no hardware to secure the cap to the chimney pipe itself.
