    Is the damper handle for the Vestal Cast Iron Fireplace Damper attached to the damper with a cotter pin, and if so, does it have to be a carbon steel cotter pin?
    1 Answer
    Yes, it is attached via a cotter pin. You can use any cotter pin with the exception of lead or aluminum based material.

    Why does it say the damper is 36 inch but the stated actual measurement is less
    2 Answers
    This is a damper plate for 36" dampers. The damper it is meant for is 36" in total length, but this is a plate that only covers the opening of the damper, which is smaller.

    Do you have any installation instructions, please?
    1 Answer
    While there is no .pdf file containing instructions, we will be happy to provide them in the easiest way possible. Most damper assemblies are held in position with a layer of parging mix. If you have an existing damper that has rusted badly or otherwise needs replacement, it will need to be removed by using a cold chisel and hammer to break the existing parging mix loose. After removing the existing damper and any remaining mortar, the new assembly can be put into position as well as the new parging mix, used to secure it. If the new damper does not sit upon a brick ledge, you may need to construct temporary 2 x 4 supports to hold the damper assembly in position while the parging mix sets.

    We're missing the plate on our fireplace. The opening is 34 inches long and 6 inches wide. What size plate should we buy? Thank you.
    1 Answer
    We only offer replacement damper plates for the Vestal damper assemblies we also offer, so there is no recommendation we could make that would ensure the plates we sell would fit securely.

    What are the two holes for that are drilled in the plate?
    1 Answer
    The larger hole that is located nearest to the attachment bushings is designed to allow the steel rod for a rotary damper control to pass through the plate. The smaller hole, near the damper arm attachment point, is designed to allow a safety cotter pin to hold the damper arm in place, should the main attachment pin break.

    Helpful, Accurate Headline
    Excellent product description, price and ultimately a very rapid delivery of a perfect-fit product. I was able to install the damper plate in a well-used fireplace in less than 15 minutes including cleaning the smoke shelf.
    This product is the most commonly-installed damper brand in the USA. Our house was built in the 1970's and the old damper literally burned out from extensive fireplace use. none

    What I needed for a low cost
    I got exactly what I ordered for a decent price and very quick shipping. Though the damper had some cast iron bumps around where the seal would be with a little grinding I was able to flatten it out.
    Fast shipping You get what you order Had to smooth areas before installation.

    V Plate replacement
    The measurement guideline online and customer support advisory was spot on. A simple install diagram or instruction page would have been helpful as an additional plus, but we figured it out.
    dimensions for plate were accurate; quality was good no install or diagram guide

    This item was exactly what I needed. I would not have known the exact size I needed were it not for the helpful customer service agent. Thanks!
    That it precisely replaced the old rusted one that had been in the fireplace for 40 years thereby eliminating the cold draft of winter. Nothing
