Adapters in the context of smoking apparatus are glass accessories that enable different pieces, such as a bong or dab rig, to fit together and function properly. They are available in various shapes and sizes, including male and female joints like 10mm, 12mm, and 14mm.
For instance, someone might say, “I need a female-to-female adapter for my bong” or “That 14mm bowl won’t fit my rig.”
What are Advantages of Adapters?
The advantages of using an adapter are noteworthy. When you own multiple bongs or dab rigs, it is likely that they have different fittings. An adapter allows you to use the same banger with multiple glass pieces, providing convenience and versatility.
What are Adapters Made of?
Adapters are typically made of glass and create a secure seal between two glass components. While some smoking apparatus may have rubber-to-glass seals, glass-to-glass adapters are becoming more popular due to their durability and longevity.
How to Use an Adapter?
To use an adapter correctly, it is crucial to determine the appropriate measurements. You need to know the size of the bowl or banger (e.g., 10mm, 12mm, 14mm) and the specifications of the rig, including whether the pieces are male or female. Once you have the correct adapter, simply slide it onto the bong or dab rig, and attach the bowl or banger to the other end.
