Item Description
Ask & Answer
Would you throw money away under ordinary circumstance? Then stop letting it seep out the top of your chimney. With this 8 inch by 8 inch Lock-Top II base California mesh chimney cap and damper combo you can prevent air from escaping the interior of your house through the fireplace. After installation, it gives the homeowner a fully accessible lever in the firebox that makes it a cinch to open and close the damper. Better yet, the cap fits snuggly over the damper and features a 5-8 inch mesh size that conforms to code requirements in states like California. Consumers can purchase with absolute confidence because each of these units comes fully backed by a manufacturer's lifetime warranty.
* Please Note: Do not use dampers with gas logs. Failure to open could cause carbon monoxide to back up into your home. In case of a gas leak, gases could become trapped in the flue, resulting in an explosion

As Anticipated
I am quite thrilled overall with the quality of this product and the significant improvement it has given to my home as a result. This item arrived just as it had been described to me, and the installation was easy despite the fact that some of the instructions were not altogether clear. Our current home is a little unusual in that we actually live in an old farmhouse. Because of its design, it was quite easy to feel the drafts as they would come down our fireplace and into our home. However, once we had installed this product, we were able to notice a huge difference. Gone were the drafts that made our home very uncomfortable. Best of all, the heat was very easy to retain, keeping the house a comfortable temperature at all times.

Stopped the summer down drafts
I have a ranch with a wood stove in the finished basement. In the summer I get stinky down drafts. This product solved that problem. Easy to install, it comes with everything needed. I would change the locking mechanism, thought. To close it you pull the cable and slide the chain into a bracket with a slot cut in it. The problem is, if you can't quite get a full link in the slot, you're forced to let open slightly to align the next link. Not a big deal but I'd change it to allow a positive closure every time.
ProsQuality, ease of installation

Innovative Product
I am pleased to report that this chimney cap outfitted with a damper does its job quite well. Because the cap does not possess the necessary width at the bottom to ensure it stays secure in the event of a strong wind, I went ahead and purchased materials to fabricate an extender.

No Problem Installing
The most impressive thing in my mind is the ease of installing this product. Even more impressive in my mind is the straightforwardness of fastening it onto a chimney. No bolts or adhesives were required. I do hope that it is able to withstand windy conditions, since there does seem to me to be within the realm of possibility the outside chance that wind would come along and knock it off its perch.

So far, so good
It's a little early to review this item, since we just had it installed last week, but so far, so good. It seems to be made of quality materials, was simple to install & easy to use. Just be aware: we had someone install it for us. He glued it down, then came downstairs to set the pull-cord & show us how to use it. Wrong! The directions state that you should let the cement cure before you do anything. Unfortunately, the cap shifted from all this cord-tugging. When we looked at it later that day, it was no longer centered. My husband had to go back up & fix things as best he could. Couldn't move the cap, so all he could do was fill in the gaps with more cement. This is NO REFLECTION on the cap itself. Just telling you so that you won't make the same mistake we did. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS the company sends you.

Damper Cap Combo does just what it is supposed to do.
The original damper in my chimney was not functioning so I thought I would give this a try. Removing my old damper inside the chimney was just a dirty job. The existing chimmney cap was removed quite easily and still in great shape after a lot of years. (It was a quality stainless steel product similar to the construction of the Lock-Top). The quality of the new unit is excellent. Installation was a bit of a challenge as it was a windy day I suggest two people handle the install as you need to adhere the unit to the top of your chimney. Do not unwind the "cable unit" until you are ready to set the cap on the adhesive (it is a real pain to untangle). Instructions that were included could be much better written and clearer in overall content. I suggest only individuals who are handy attempt this as you need to prepare the surface for the adhesive and you will be working on a roof/ladder during the process. The selling price was best around and the unit functions just as it is designed. This is just the start of my first season with the item so I cant make any long term judgements at this point.
ProsQuality of construction and Price
ConsCable will tangle easily during install and instructions could use to be re-written with better graphics and directions.

Eliminates Drafts
If you are looking for a product that is able to function properly and live up to all of the promises as they are listed, then this item is just what you need to buy! Prior to installing it on our fireplace, we frequently had issues with drafts, all of which made our home uncomfortable. Once this was put in place, what amazed me is that all of the previous issues that we had with drafts immediately went away. Additionally, our heating bill literally plummeted.

Best Product I've Come Across
I have been in the business of construction for over twenty years, and this product is simply the best product out there of its kind. What was particularly impressive to me was the ease of installing it. Even more remarkable is how seamlessly the damper and handle are able to operate with one another. Probably the most amazing thing I found with regards to this unit is the price tag; in making the decision to purchase this product instead of other ones, I was able to save several hundred dollars and come away with a much better product.

Tight Seal on Damper
This is a fantastic product that has done a terrific job. I installed it on one of my fireplaces, and because of the results I have managed to get, I really want to install it on my other fireplace. The choice to install this item on the fireplace has been so effective that I have found myself wishing that I had made the decision to purchase and install this product much sooner. The seal on this item is tight enough to ensure that it will not leak at all.

Looks Amazing
There are so many positive things to say about this product that it really is almost impossible to figure out where there best place to begin is. As a woman, I sensed that installing this on my own would be a little bit of a challenge, but amazingly so, it only took me about thirty minutes to do the entire installation. What really impressed me is that as soon as I was finished, the seal was so tight that I felt confident that it would not leak at all. Best of all, it looks quite nice as it sits on top of the chimney on my roof. All in all, it really is an outstanding asset.

Instructions Could Be Clearer
I am very happy with this product, specifically since it has managed to successfully eliminate all of the drafts that we had in our home. Overall, the room is significantly warmer now. One minor quibble that I have with this product is that the installation process was not at all straightforward. Thankfully, I did manage to locate a video on YouTube that did a great job of demystifying the installation process. One other minor problem I had was getting the coiled wire to cooperate and go where it needed to go. It took me almost a half an hour to get it all straightened out.

Very High Quality Product
This product is a good one, and it possesses excellent quality overall. The design is such that you can expect for it to last many years of use; best of all, the service that it provides to our chimney in both eliminating unwanted drafts and keeping the rain out of the fireplace. One other arena that this unit has proven itself to be extremely useful is in keeping the heat inside the home and lowering heating (and electric) bills. The installation process is also one that is not cumbersome in the least. So efficient is the design that there is nothing included that needs to be fastened onto the chimney. My initial thought is that such a device as this would require something to fasten it to the chimney, and initially I was a bit apprehensive about this design. Thankfully, it has proven me wrong, as well as has proven itself to be an all around excellent product.
