Default KM + Windcover question (new question)

EDITED: Hi-jacking my old thread so I don't have to clutter with a new one ha. But I'm looking for a 10" windcover that isn't overly ornate. Just like a silver windcover, but tall enough for a KM. I've looked on HJ, but I'm not too fond of the different tones look for it... Something more plain jane is my style.

My search brought me to: http://www.hookah-life.com/xl-egyptian-wind-cover.html 12" tall, might be a winner. Though, they don't have a base I like/that fits/in stock. Sigh, more shipping charges...

my one doesnt fit, but you could use your tongs to balance the windcover on and it will work

The tongs trick doesn't work on my AF, at least not with the tongs I have. I use two shish-kabob skewers to stand the windcover on..see pic.

I only need it with a phunnel or my big-ass egyptian. Most bowls fit just fine!

Looks like you have an excuse to buy more stuff!
I mean, you can't buy just a windcover! You gotta add a new bowl, maybe a couple of 250's of Nakhla.......

2 days late, but John had the quad metal windcover for sale which would have fitted quiet nicely and looked gorgeous on the hookah. But Dee's solution seems to be the most cost effective and available.

Yeah, thats a good idea, Ive done that before but I use pencils instead

Another idea I got from patelbadboy2006 was to use a Starbuzz can, make a hole in it and use it as an extension...

Yeah, it works well but a tangiers sized windcover is good to have with these long bowls. Going on holiday soon so hoping to find a good windcover along with other shisha/hookah things

I stopped using this as the windcover is not always on and im scared the coals might drop of the bowl and instead of fall on the tray they would fall on the floor, so stick with tongs now lool

There are tons of ways you could make it fit. I don't have an actual windcover anymore but I use this..

Ha. Well, I may feel like going for a second vase for it in the near future. Don't know how much I will like the one it comes with. People and their flashy vases, give me a clear bell vase with a few stripes and I'm set ha

Yum. Trimetal + Gold bands always looks sexy. They have a black with gold too, which is nice as well. But there is a picture on it that I can't make out.

I have a tendency to do a half-assed search, ask for help, and then do a full-assed search before anyone answers. That's probably annoying to others ha. But thank you for taking the time!
