What's an adaptor?
The adaptor is a small, very convenient accessory for the pipe. It is formed of a cylindrical part (made of plastic), on which a metal filter is placed.
Why use an adaptor?
The adaptor allows to smoke a 9mm pipe with a classic metal filter. By using an adaptor, you can therefore transform your 9mm system into a 3mm-one.
Please note that the adaptor might not fit every pipe. It can be used on pipes that were designed to have an adaptor, and some pipes that originally had a 9mm filter. To make sure the adaptor fits on the pipe you're going to buy on our online shop, do not hesitate to contact us and tell us the model you wish to order.Claire, La Pipe Rit
How to use this adaptor?
To put this adaptor in place, you just need to take the stem off your pipe, then put the adaptor in the stem (instead of the 9mm filter). We recommend you put it inside the stem by turning it on itself (as if you meant to screw it in the 9mm tenon). This trick makes it much easier to put it on and take it off (for cleaning)!
Please note that depending on current stocks, the adaptor's color might be different (black, blue or grey). This will of course not impact your pipe's esthetic, as the adaptor is placed inside the pipe.Bastien, La Pipe Rit
