I have your 6" Selkirk stove pipe that I'd like to connect to my new stove.
Both the stove pipe and the stove flue stub are 6.25" outer diameter.
Will the 6" draw band work for the connection or do I need the 7" draw band?
By eFireplaceStore on March 13, 2015
Answer:This draw band should indeed work for you, as the maximum adjustment is just over 6 1/4 inches, per the manufacturer. Longer bolts can also be used to extend it a bit further.

I have a gas stove that was installed a few years ago and I am finally getting around to finishing the surround and mantle. The existing thimble that comes out of the wall is unfinished metal and I'd like to cover/wrap it in a black-finished metal. I'm attaching photos for your review. Would this product work?
The rectangular back plate will be covered by tile - I just need something that will dress up the 2 inches of exposed unfinished steel. What do you think?

Answer:As long as the draw band is close to the outer diameter of your gas stove piping, you certainly could use it to dress up the short run a bit.

I have purchased some 6" stovepipe that snaps together (previously I had round stovepipe at my wood stove.) When I put the snap-in piece into the wood stove, I have a flat zone near the snap-in area. Is there a way to get this to be round?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 26, 2012
Answer:The piping can indeed flatten along the seam when assembled, especially if that piece was a bit troublesome to get together. I would suggest double-checking that the snap connection is fully made by pushing on the backside of the seam with your thumbs. The seam should push outwards fairly easily.
If the connection appears to be intact, you may need to round out the pipe again by gently pushing/pulling outward on the seam until the pipe is just starting to ovalize. When released, the pipe should spring back to a rounder shape.

The inside measurement on my stove collar is 5 3/4 inches and the crimped end of my stovepipe is 5 7/8 inches. If I used your 6" draw band would that allow me to put the crimped end of my stovepipe in it and attach the band to my stove collar?
By eFireplaceStore on October 7, 2014
Answer:This drawband can indeed be used to bridge the gap in sizing between the collar of your stove and the crimped end of the stovepipe. I recommend crimping the end of the stovepipe further, if possible, but the drawband should offer a tight seal when fully collapsed.

Will this item work with non-Snap Lock pipe? Do you have a band like this that is not Snap Lock?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 31, 2012
Answer:While this band is manufactured for use with Snap Lock piping, it can be used with almost any 6-inch diameter crimped stovepipe. This includes other brands such as Imperial and Heat-Fab.

Can I use a draw band connector between a piece of 6" pipe and another short length of 6" pipe at the stove top (Wood stove fireplace insert) to create a pipe to facilitate stove removal without stressing 45 above the stove? Should I simply connect one end of the connector on the outside of the stove flange
(Top of stove)? If I do connect two pieces of 6" pipe, will the connector close tight enough to seal on the outside of the 6" pipe? Which is the best option?
By Chris on November 1, 2013
Answer:This connector is indeed designed to be connected directly to the top of the stove as well as designed to create a tight enough seal as to not allow any by pass of smoke.
