Step 5: Installing the Chimney Pipe Adapter and Collar

Now that the wood stove is ready, the next thing we need to do is hook the wood stove pipe to the existing class a chimney. We used a U.L. approved metalbestos chimney pipe adapter to transition from the class a chimney to the black stove pipe.  

We chose to use double wall black stove pipe for this application. The location where Dennis wanted to place his wood stove was too close to a combustible wall to use single wall stove pipe. Double wall stove pipe has to be 6" or more away from any combustible walls.  

After the chimney pipe adapter is locked into place, use a drill to insert 3 self tapping screws through the stove pipe to the chimney pipe adapter.  

Once the pipe is firmly set, locate the finishing collar. This is a black ring that will be attached to the chimney pipe adapter and the stove pipe to give a clean, professional finish.
Step #2 is incorrect. DO NOT rest the baffles on the bracket in back. Per Napoleon's installation manual: <br> <br> &quot;Carefully pivot fibre baffle up onto the top of the side brick. Slide it over onto the flange of the manifold.&quot; <br> <br>In this position the baffles will be level and there will be no openings, except at the front of the stove.
<p>After the baffles are resting on the manifold flange, push the baffles back onto the firebricks in the back of the stove. Again, there should be no openings, except at the front of the stove.</p>
Thanks for the response Jay and yes for GAS and OIL burning appliances, that is true, But, for a WOOD burning appliance you want all of the male ends of the pipe to point towards the stove. This way any creosote from inside the pipe will fall back into the stove. If the female end is pointing down this does potentially allow creosote to leak out of the pipe.
Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but at the end of the article you stated the last thing to do is to connect the male end of the chimney pipe to the exhaust collar of the stove. <br>Shouldn't that be to connect the female end of the pipe to the male exhaust collar of the stove? <br>Jay
I don't know how this looked when you first wrote (lots of hyperlinks to your own products?), but it looks like a great Instructable now. Enough detail that someone handy could follow it successfully, and fairly general (it should apply well to most other brands of wood stove). Thanks for responding to the comments!
Thanks for the complement and comment!
I think this is more of a spammish product brochure than an instructable.
These instructions should work even for stoves not sold by Rockford Chimney. I agree that the project puts off a whiff of "buy stuff from us" spamminess, but the information is valuable and applicable beyond merely flogging stoves.
Fixed! Thanks for the feedback.
