Cool ClampsPi-Thon Design Inc. developed the FireLock coupler to greatly improve exhaust system appearance, while making assembly and disassembly much easier. Each FireLock is CNC-machined from billet T-304 stainless steel and uses two internal compression rings to clamp down on butted sections of exhaust tubing. No slip fits or tubing expanders are required. Simply cut your tubing to the proper length, slide the ends into a FireLock, and tighten the threaded outer ends. The stainless-steel material is great for resisting corrosion in harsh environments, is easy to clean, and is an ideal match for any of the stainless-steel exhaust systems on the market.
