This is the cap without the base trim for solid packed Class A chinney. Click here for version with base trim, part 14963.We also have trim plates for masonry chimneys available, as well as these caps for 7" and 8" interior diameter chimneys and will send you a quote if desired. email email@example.com This cap is an aftermarket upgrade for locations where wind related downdrafting causes smoke to enter the home thru a wood stove or wood stove insert. As the wind hits this cap the shapes force suction up the chimney pipe keeping pressure from pushing smoke into the home. This will only stop wind driven back smoking symptoms. For stoves that smoke upon start up, with "non self starting chimneys" a Draw Collar may be useful if the chimney is already 2' taller than the nearest point on the roof within 10' horizontally.
