Since the piece includes a dropdown style, it not only allows for connecting pieces that otherwise would not be connectable, but it also removes the site of heating from the rest of the rig. This is quite helpful for those who use their rigs for concentrates. Concentrates require torches to heat quartz nails, and those torches could potentially damage the rest of the glass piece if that high heat comes into contact with the glass. This dropdown adapter eliminates that threat.
This piece is made from thick glass and uses ground joints for the ultimate seal. It can be cleaned with soap and hot water, and soaking it makes any remaining residue easy to remove. This piece could easily become a staple of your collection, especially if you like mixing and matching your pieces to create unique pipes from the basic components.
