    Product Details
    Manufacturer: Vestal
    Part Number: 26290
    eFireplaceStore Item Number: CPF-26290

    Features

    • Rotary-style damper control
    • Easier to use than standard poker models
    • 19" length
    * Please Note: This damper control is designed for use on Vestal dampers. It may not work on other brands.

    The damper controls the draft and seals off the chimney when the fireplace is not in use. If the control mechanism for your Vestal damper is broken, or if you currently have a poker-style control that you would like to change, this rotary-style control may be the ideal replacement. The rotary control is easier to use than a standard poker control and more precisely controls the opening. This rotary control measures 19" in length.

    My damper control has been missing the yoke since I moved in. It is 20" in length from tip to end of the handle. It is a square rod, with a 1/4" cross-section. Do you think I should by a longer rod and cut it down to 20"? Please advise.


    1 Answer
    You may need to have a control custom made, as nothing we offer can be modified to accommodate your damper.

    Is this product made to adjust the air flow to increase/decrease the fire?
    1 Answer
    Yes a damper like this is installed in the throat of a masonry fireplace. It is for air flow control to allow more or less combustion air, as needed.

    Will a manual vestal damper work with a rotary control?
    1 Answer
    Yes. Vestal dampers throats and plates are manufactured with a pass-through for the control rod of the rotary damper control. The rotary control attaches in the same location as the pivot arm for the manual control.

    Scott C
    from Massachusetts asked:
    November 7, 2012
    Can I use an existing rod for the installation? Is it okay to pull the handle and rod and will it go back into the collar easily?
    1 Answer
    As long as the existing damper rod is physically long enough for the additional depth added by the doors, it can certainly be used again. It may be necessary to have an assistant line up the worm gear and the rod in order to get the rod to reinsert into position. The worm gear may drop down out of position when the rod is removed.

    How do I change from a poker style to a rotary style?

    You will indeed need to drill a hole through the face of your fireplace to install the rotary style. No sealant will be required.
