I have a brand new Hearthstone GM 60 and I put the soap stones in the firebox and the cats in their designated spots. Do the cats just sit in the slots? It says to install them through the access door in the back but they fit through the flue collar fine. There aren’t any gaskets or anything else to keep them in place? I guess they are fine as is?
