Default Wind cover doesn't fit

I bought a large wind cover for my large tangiers phunnel bowl a few months ago and it doesn't fit around it. What do I do.

that depends on what you have laying around. you can easily make your windcover a few inches taller using an empty starbuzz tin, one of the BIG monster energy drink cans...stuff like that.

with a problem like this you just have to think outside the box. you probably have everything you need laying around. think McGuyver man.

EDIT

just saw that you said around, not over. if the problem is that your bowl is too wide to fit inside the windcover, your easiest option would be to get creative with some tinfoil. all you need it to do is keep the heat in there, it wont look pretty but it will function.

Post some pics of what you mean by it doesnt fit cause some people seem to think it doesnt fit height wise but it almost sounded like you were saying it doesnt fit even over the bowl cause the windcover is not large enough in diameter.

Pics will give people a better idea of whats going on and we will then be able to help you

You're gonna be hard-pressed to find something that'll go over it like you want it to that isn't homemade. Large tangiers phunnels should be called ridiculously huge tangiers phunnels.

not much you can do with that windcover but if you get 2 monster bfc cans and cut the top and bottom off

and then cut them down the side and unroll them then tape the two together to make the can double the diameter of a single can

then just put a piece of foil over the top with some holes in it to keep the heat in yet still let it breathe.

also i would make some holes in the cans to let a little air flow through the sides too =)

then use anything to raise it up if you need more height.

hope this helps.

that bowl is just enormous lol.

also not sure how large the diameter of that bowl is but

this windcover has a 5 3/4" diameter opening and is 6" tall
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-2300-...windcover.html

this windcover (the large one) is 7" tall and 4" in diameter
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-1040-...ind-cover.html

just measure the bowl and you may be able to find a windcover that fits =)

good luck
