Snap lock duct pipe is very common in home heating systems. Round pipe is typically found between the main duct trunks and the registers in homes. Some commercial builds use exclusively round pipe because of its efficiency, appeal, and ease of install. HVAC installers can typically install twice as much round pipe in a day as they can square duct. Snap lock duct pipe is shipped "unsnapped" so that many joints of duct can fit in a small space. Before installation, it simply has to be snapped together and it's ready to be put in.

Things you need

Snap lock duct pipeTape measureAviation snipsScrewdriverHammerWork gloves

Instructions

1 Measure the length of snap lock duct pipe you need. Cut it with your aviation snips to the measured length.

2 Grasp the snap lock pipe at one end and begin snapping it together. It snaps together by inserting the male part of the seam into the female part. Keep moving slowly down the pipe working the seam together. As you get toward the end, it should all completely snap together.

3 Crimp one end of the pipe with your pipe crimper to make it ready to assemble. Repeat the above steps until all your duct is assembled.

Tips and warnings

You may need to use a screwdriver to slightly open the female end of the seam to begin snapping it together.

If the seams end up uneven when snapped together, you can even them out by gently tapping one side with a hammer until they line up.

Snap lock duct pipe is extremely sharp and you must exercise caution when handling it. Always wear gloves to prevent serious cuts or injury.
