Reliner Adaptors Etc.
This is where all the other necessary relining components are hiding. On this page your will find the following:
This system makes it easy to reline flues that vent fireplace inserts with rectangular openings. HomeSaver's Insert Adaptor System is modular. All the 304-alloy stainless components simply slip together. this way you can mix and match the components you need, depending upon things like fireplace depth, lintel height, damper opening position, etc.
The components are easy to understand. There are two insert adaptors (straight and offset) which fit into the rectangular opening on the insert top.
Then there are three insert adaptor transitions - one each for RectangleFlex, Large OvalFlex, and 8" RoundFlex.
There's a 45 degree insert adaptor elbow you can use between the straight insert adaptor and any transition when needed.
Finally, there's an Insert Adaptor Boot that will mate your adaptors to larger insert exhausts.
We've illustrated just four of the many possible combinations this great modular system allows. Try the HomeSaver Insert Adaptor System on your fireplace insert reline job.
As described above, both the straight and offset adaptors have a 3 1/4" x 13 1/4" lipped opening in the bottom. Use the 18-ga. insert adaptor boot when you find and insert whose exhaust dimensins are substantially different than these.
It is constructed of 304-alloy stainless, stands 3/4" high. and bolts to the top of the insert. Then, either your straight insert adaptor or offset insert adaptor fits right into the boot.
It will cover an insert exhaust vent as large as 5 1/2" x 19 1/2". Be sure the opening in the boot is centered over the opening of the insert exhaust vent during installation.
Flat gasket material comes cemented to the bottom of the adaptor to form a seal. The straight insert adaptor is placed into the rectangular opening on the top of your fireplace insert. Metal tabs on the adaptor bend out to hold it in place.
Then, any of the three insert adaptor transition pieces or 45 degree insert adaptor elbow (featured below) simply slide right into the tip of the insert adaptor. A glance at the illustrations at the top of this page shows what we mean.
The transition piece you choose is not fastened in place in the insert adaptor. It should be allowed to "slip" freely by at least 2". This gives you even more flexibility during your installation.
And if you don't need an insert adaptor that's the full 8" high, just trim it down with your sheet metal shears.
If you encounter an insert whose exhaust vent doesn't mate to the 3 1/4" x 13 3/4" opening on either the straight or offset insert adaptor, use the insert adaptor boot, which is featured above, to get the job done.
In addition to describing the insert adaptor boot, we feature descriptions of the insert adaptor transitions, as well as our 45 degree insert adaptor elbow, all shown below.
WE OFFER THE ONLY UL/ULC LISTED LINING SYSTEM AVAILABLE FOR INSTALLING A WOOD BURNING INSERT INTO A FACTORY-BUILT FIREPLACE!
Now you can reline a factory-built chimney and hae a system listed to UL 1777 and ULC S365-00.
Before HomeSaver's Factory-Built Liner Adaptor was developed you had a real dilemma if you wanted to install a wood burning insert into a factory-built fireplace - you could do the installation without a UL/ULC Listed liner system - or you could not do the installation at all. Well you don't have to make that choice any more...
Now you can put a UL/ULC Listed insert into a factory-built fireplace, reline the chimney, and know with certainty you hae installed a UL/ULC Listed liner. That's protection for YOU!
The UL/ULC Listing is valid only with HomeSaver liners and components; and only if installed according to manufacturer's instructions.
Note: chimney must be in good, sound condition before installing a liner. No warpage, rusting, buckleing, or any other damage is acceptable. Verify clearances and verify existing installation is properly done before installing liner.
The Adaptor makes the Whole System Work
The support for the entire liner system is provided by the patented factory-built liner adaptor. The adaptor sits on top of the double-wall factory-built chimney without sealing of airflow between the walls. Look underneath the adaptor to see the screen that allows air to flow in and out between the chimney walls. The screen also keeps critters from entering this space.
The only liners UL/ULC Listed for the system are HomeSaver RoundFlex, Pro, and UltraPro - 6" diameters only. 1/2" HomeSaver Foil-Face FlexWrap insulation on the liner is also required. All the top and bottom termination hardware is also either HomeSaver Pro or HomeSaver RoundFlex.
Our stock top/bottom plates are free of those dangerous sharp points that can inflict damage to you, and we have lots of styles and sizes of relining pipe to choose from.
Naturally we have top plates for all diameters of our RoundFlex, HomeSaver Pro, HomeSaver Ultra Pro from 3" - 12" including 5.5". These sizes are available: 9" x 9", 9" x 13", 13" x 13", 13" x 18", or 18" x 18". We also have top plates for Large and Small OvalFlex and for RectangleFlex.
Stock top/bottom plates are not available for FireplaceFlex or for Dial-A-Flex. However, you can order custom plates for these installations.
All of our HomeSaver top/bottom plates are made of 18-ga., 304-alloy stainless steel. We don't custom trim our plates. We recommend electric shears for trimming of the plates to match your exact application when necessary.

Use this 18" x 18" 304 stainless, 18-ga. bottom plate with 2" collar with the leg support system. Rigid liner fits right into the collar, RoundFlex, Pro, and UltraPro will need a connector-adaptor. Available in 8" - 12" diameters.
This Leg Support (shown with our bottom plate with 2" collar) is a great way to go when installing your bottom plate in a fireplace reline.
This system lets you make you installation through the damper area. It can be used with the bottom plate with 2" collar, or with any of our stock or special order top/bottom plates (each sold separately).
The Leg Support System consists of two 304-alloy stainless tubes, two 1/2" stainless all-thread rods, two stainless nuts, and two tube holders. The rods slide into the tubes and the nuts tighten to adjust the length of the rod/tube assembly. The rods are 30" in length, and the tubes are 24". The maximum recommended leg length is 48". If you need legs shorter than 30", just cut your rods/tubes to fit.
Note: Do not allow all of the liner's weight to rest on the bottom. Support you liner on top with a top plate and top clamp or top/bottom support brackets.
Ordering Note: To complete your installation, you will need a plate - use eithr the bottom plate with 2" collar (below) or any of our stock or custom top/bottom plates.
Use the 1/8" grip range, 304 rivets for joining two pieces of rigid Heat-Fab Saf-T-Liner. These are the same rivets that come with Saf-T-Liner. The 1/4" grip range, 304 rivets do the job when joining either HomeSaver Flex or Heat-Fab Saf-T-Liner. Use the 1/2" grip range, 304 rivets with HomeSaver Flex or are any time you have large tolerances. (The large grip range naturally requires more pulls on the pop rivet gun.)
We also offer 316-alloy stainless steel pop rivet. The 316 rivets feature a 1/2" grip range and should be used with all 316 relining pipe and components.
Our rivets are sold in packs of 100. They are 1/8" diameter and require, a 9/64" drill bit and require a heavier-duty pop rivet gun than the one you have to work around the house.
Our 9/64" cobalt bits, sold individually, have a sharp, long-lasting tip that works great. Our 9/64" double end bits, sold in packs of 12, are made with a softer metal and are more break resistant than the cobalt bits. But they may lose sharpness after moderate use. They're sized just right for our stainless pop rivets (shown above). We also offer 17/64" cobalt bit for mounting our HomeSaver Top/Bottom Support Brackets.
These stainless screws require no pilot hole. They are self- drilling. Just pop them in your chuck driver and your variable-speed drill and go to town.
Our screws are 400 series stainless, 1/2", No. 8 or 1 1/4", No. 10. The No.8 (pictured) has a combination slot/hex-drive head and is sold in packs of 500: the No. 10 has a hex drive head and is sold in packs of 125.
It's a breeze to pull your HomeSaver RoundFlex, OvalFlex, RectangleFlex, or Dial-A-Flex up the chimney with the Super Winch, and relining companies report installations in as little as one to two hours. It has a 1,000 lb. winch and cable capacity with forward and reverse ratcheting, and a 60' cable.
Note: this should not be used on lightweight liners (HomeSaver Pro, UltraPro, and all Ventinox).
It weighs only 25 lbs. and has built-in leg levelers for uneven crowns and mounting blocks for plank mounting to accommodate any size chimney. It is constructed of aluminum with stainless steel hardware.
