Item details

PLEASE SPECIFY IN THE NOTE TO SELLER WHICH SIZES YOU WOULD LIKE. You will get 1 of each if you do not specify in the "NOTE TO SELLER" field.
PLEASE PICK FROM: 10MM, 12-13MM, 15-16MM, OR 18MM. If you have a color preference, PLEASE SPECIFY WHICH COLORS. I will make substitutions if I need to for colors only.


Pictured are silicone boots whose one end will fit onto a 1/4 swivel. (If you trim off the connector end, it fits 3/8 inch swivels)
The other end fits well onto different sizes of polished end tubing (sharp ends will tear these up!)
I have found no difference in the material, based on color. Color can help organizing, and telling similar sizes apart at a glance.

The 12-13mm boots fit 12.7 and 13 into the thickest part of the boot, with smaller (9-12) sizes fitting into the shoulder or smaller part of the boot. Recommended for 12.7 and 13mm users.
12MM users will either have to fit the boot into the shoulder, or add a twist tie to the larger part of the boot to shrink it down to 12mm (as shown on my Firekist Glass Facebook page) 10mm can also stretch over 12mm, but I don't find this ideal.
The 15-16mm will fit 16mm in the largest part of the boot. In the shoulder, it will fit 9-12mm tube, but it will not be as easily centered. Recommended for 16mm tube.
If you find yourself using tubing that fits into the shoulder or smaller part of the boot very often, you can trim off the larger part of the boot to make it even easier to get these boots on and off your blowtubes.
NEW the 10mm boot is just like the skinny part of all of these, except longer. they fit 9 and 10mm only. Great for most Glass on Glass joint holders.
NEW 18mm They fit 19mm tubing in the larger part, and 9-12 in the shoulder/smaller part of the tube.

More usage tips can be found at my Firekist Glass Facebook Page.

These are also great for the lathe. They can add a couple inches to a shorter blowtube instantly!
If you are using a size that you want to fit into the big part of the boot, but the boot is slightly too big, you can use a twist tie to cinch down the boot. This works surprisingly well.

RESTRICTIONS APPLY TO LARGER QUANTITIES. I may contact you if your order has more boots than I can ship for the preset shipping price. (If you want 50+, contact me for discounted boot pricing and shipping)
