Q:Will it fit a 7 x 7 flue?
by|Nov 7, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  the specifications are a range of 7-1/2 to 9-1/2 inches. So as it stands it will not work. Depending on your ability to customize you could shim a 1/4" on each side to attach to the flue. You can also look for a cap that falls within your dimensions

    Q:The mouth of the chimney is 13in x 13in. Will this one fit?
    by|Oct 4, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The Cover secures to the outside of the flue tile so the critical dimension is the outside to outside measurement. If your flue is 13" outside to outside then yes the Shelter 1313 will work great! If the dimensions are the inside measurements then no it will not fit. It can go as large as 13 1/2" x 13 1/2". Feel free to call Customer Service at 1-800-325-7076 for additional support. Thank you.

        Did Not Last
        This chimney cap started coming apart on a windy day and became a safety hazard along with leaving leaving my wood stove insert exposed to rain. There's no way this cap is fully hot dipped galvanized. Go with stainless steel if you want it to last a while. It only lasted 3 1/2 years max.

          It will NOT fit over a 9 x 13 square (without rounded corners) flue without a little modification.

            It worked great. I installed it on my buddy's chimney. He has just a single flew for an oil furnace, with 16.5x16.5 inch block at the base of the chimney, but at the top above the roof, it has a layer of stucco, and the cap fit perfect after bending some of the metal grating back around the bottom lip of the cap. It is very secure after tightening bolts down. Very visually appealing, looks great.
