Forever Flex Insert Liner:
Connecting The Liner in Tight-fitting Insert Installations
The Problem: sometimes, a fireplace insert is such a tight fit in the fireplace that there isn't room above the insert to get your hands in and
attach the insert connector to the flue collar.
Solution 1: if you have extra width in the fireplace opening, the first thing to try is sliding the insert all the way to one side, and making the
connection by reaching through the other side. You can center the insert in the fireplace opening after you've made the connection.
If there isn't room for that technique, try this trick.
You'll need: A short length of 1" dowel or 1x1: A length of stout rope: A long standard screwdriver
