    Hi, need help finding the piece of pipe that connects a Bat Cave Insert to the regular stove pipe. Anyone know what it is called and where I might can find one or have one made? Ok, here is a pic. The opening with the attached piece is 14x3", which is crazybe because it doesn't even fit, as you can see there are holes on each corner for the smoke to come out into the house? Oh well, if you can shed any light on this I would surely appreciate it! IMAG0476.jpg

    Give High Valley a call. They started out making Bat Cave stoves, then Carolina stoves and the High Valley. If it is a rectangular hole in the top of the stove you are looking for an "insert boot". A Google search will produce several. Also you can get them from hartshearth.com.

    As the page says, they were bought by Stoll - the old info is likely to be lost by now...but, as BB says, you can find something to do the job.

    What you need to do is measure the rectangular opening and note what may be on the inside of it (dampers, stuff in the way, etc.).....
    Then look for something like this:

    or this:

    If you carefully measure and ask the right questions, you will end up with the right part!

    As was mentioned above, Stoll recently assumed High Valley. They make a great product. All there doors are incredible as well as the stoves and inserts, but i don't think they will be involved with these old "boots". There are so many available aftermarket, there would be no need to.

    I was pretty impressed with the High Valley products at the HPBA show!
