Default The 1 thing I hate about KM's

There nice Hookahs but I hate the way they have really long male connectors at the top of the stem, it doesn't look that good IMO and doesn't allow me to use my windcover without propping up with a sb tin which affects the asthetics of the hookah. Another reason why I prefer my AF solid.

Sorry, had to get that off my chest

I like being a hobo with mine. Creating my own wind screens, etc. I use a roll of duct tape to prop up my Hunts Tomato sauce Wind screen

Get an old coffee mug, cut off the bottom, and use it to prop it up.

I know that would solve the problem but just seems a pain in the ass and a bit weird considering my windcover is Egyptian. If the syrians can change their bowls from female to male to be less awkward and more comparable with common availability on the Market then why can't KM do the same with the length of their male connectors?

Anyone know if can get a large windcover from the UK?

I still think you should just make your own. IMO you wont have to spend a ton of money on something you can just make in your own home.

Srsly, this guy tells the truth. I finally made a ghetto windcover out of aluminum foil, it literally took me thirty seconds. I even taped the sides together with blue painters tape! xD It works fantastic.
Real ones do look nicer though...

It's just their aesthetic. I agree that it's a bit silly and not entirely functional. The larger wind cover will work but frankly I find it annoying to have to buy a new item entirely. Bear in mind that a lot of this is because of taller bowls. I use my standard or small Egyptian and the basic wind cover I have fits... barely lol.

When I use my vortex I have to prop the wind cover up until the coals die down a bit. If I use my funnel I need my largest wind cover unless I want to lock my tongs into the grooves of the stem and rest the wind cover on that.

Here is a visual reference to help you understand what I mean. I look ragged and disheveled in this video...

Both vendors in the Uk The extra large should do the trick contact the vendors and ask the dimensions before purchase

it does bite that you'd have to buy a whole new accessory. There is a 10" quad metal wind cover i've seen but that's $30. Yikes.

It looks cool though so i'm still going to be a sucker and get it when i get my KM... but still... $30! {please pretend i said that the way whoopi goldberg did in 'Ghost' when she said "4 million dollars!"}

If 10" doesn't do it...
