Taking only seconds to fit, this handy extension rod measures 6” / 15cm and will screw into the handle and rod that come with your chimney draught excluder.
Our innovative collection of fireplace draught excluders should be placed at the bottom of your chimney flue in order to drastically reduce cold draughts in your home. Usually it is easier to fit a larger Chimney Sheep® lower down. However, if you your chimney is narrower further up, you may want to put your Chimney Sheep® here so you can get a smaller size.
If the position of your Chimney Sheep® is higher than 30cm, it can be difficult to reach into. You’ll find that an extension rod will make life a little easier for you, helping you to fit your Chimney Sheep® precisely in the right location.
It is also really important that a dangle can always be seen hanging in your fireplace when your Chimney Sheep® draught stopper is installed. It comes with a complimentary perma-dangle but you can choose an ornamental dangle from our collection. This acts as a reminder that your Herdwick wool draught excluder is installed, in case you, or another family member would like to start a fire. The person who inserted the Chimney Sheep® is not necessarily the person who will be lighting the next fire, so a hanging dangle must always be visible.
If the fire is accidentally lit when the Chimney Sheep® is in place, don't worry! The wool chimney draft stopper is fire retardant. It will smoulder a bit and the fire won’t draw properly, alerting the user to the fact that the Chimney Sheep® is still present and must be carefully removed, once cooled.
