Taking only seconds to fit, this handy extension rod measures 6” / 150mm and will screw into the handle + rod that come with your chimney draught excluder.
Chimney Sheep’s 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. But when a chimney throat 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.
Usually it is easier to fit a larger Chimney Sheep lower down. However, if you need to reach a bit higher up the chimney to fit it, you can add extension rods to get the required length and instantly start to reduce cold draughts.
Should I be able to see the extension rod in my fireplace?
It’s 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.
But don’t worry if the fire is accidentally lit as the 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.
