  1. Michael White

    High quality craftsmanship! I ordered this for my Next Gen Maple Products 2×4 divided pan and it lined right up to the inlet port. The hanger hung it about 1/2 inch to low but for now I have a section of silicon tubing between the hanger and the pan, it seems like it will work fine until I can find someone to put a new bend in the hanger. Keep in mind this is in no way a fault in the product since it was not made for this pan, I looked at the measurements and figured it would be my best option!

  2. Adam

    Phenomenal quality, easy to adjust. It’s not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for.

    I would highly recommend
