With fall weather’s arrival forthcoming, many homeowners are taking the opportunity to install new chimney liners. For some of them, it will be the first time that they’ve ever laid their hands onto a rigid or flexible liner. So we want to spend time today talking about one item that is needed to make chimney liner installations run smoothly, pulling cones. |
Pulling cones, also known as nose cones, are stainless steel tools that are designed to help move items up and down a long stretch of chimney. As such, they are sometimes included in chimney liner installation kits, but not always. Thus, it pays to verify which items are a part of a kit before clicking one’s way to the check-out area. If the package doesn’t come with a pulling cone, its best to add one immediately.
When choosing a pulling nose cone, it is critical to find one that is small enough to move through the chimney freely but is strong enough to support the weight of a chimney liner. Understandably, it should also be the same shape as the chimney. The stainless steel pulling cones that we have in stock are oval, round, square and rectangle. Each one features an eye hook at the top of the cone, which is suitable for use with wire, line or rope.
The round pulling cones range in size from 3-inches to 16-inches and the ovals run from 4-inches x 6-inches to 15-inches x 16.25-inches. As for the rectangle and square cones, they start at 4-inches x 6.25-inches and 4.75-inches x 4.75-inches, respectively. The biggest rectangular cone is 5-inches by 6-inches and the largest, perfect square is 14-inches all around.
