Crushproof-Hose tailpipe adapters are designed to handle temperatures of up to 600°F and help prolong the life of the exhaust hose. All of our crushproof adapters are available with an optional spring clamp, and some have a plug option. The Plug allows certains types of drops and hoses to be shut off when not in use.

When selecting a tailpipe adapter, it is important to understand the specific requirements of your application. Using a tailpipe adapter capable of handling your application demands will prevent safety hazards, increased expenses, hose failure, and lost production time. Determine which tailpipe adapter is best-suited for your application by considering the following.

Types of Vehicle Exhaust

• Twin Pipes
• Dual Exhaust
• Vertical Stacks
• Undercarriage exhaust

Tailpipe Adapter Selection Factors

• Should be ½” larger than the largest serviceable tailpipe diameter
• Varies between models for overhead tailpipe orientation, undercarriage orientation, or both

What Material Should Be Used for What Applications?

• Metal should be used for high-temp and vertical exhausts
• Rubber should be used for low temp undercarriage exhausts

How Do Tailpipe Adapters Stay in Place?

A hook and chain assembly are attached to each adapter allowing it to be fixed to the frame of the vehicle.

Why There Should NOT Be a Tight Fit on the Tailpipe

The fit on a tailpipe must have room to allow ambient air and exhaust in to keep the system cool.

What Happens If My Exhaust Hose Is Smaller Than the Tailpipe?

If your hose is not sized to be 1/2" larger than the tailpipe you will run into temperature issues that will reduce hose life.

If the I.D. is too small, the friction from high amounts of vehicle exhaust will increase temperature causing pressure to decrease which ultimately results in various hose damages.

WARNING: Vehicle Exhaust is extremely dangerous and potentially deadly. We always recommend that any system be properly engineered to meet the specifications of your application. If you are using our Crushproof system, we recommend that you use it with a fan and as an intermittent repair solution only, not to be run for long periods of time. This hose is to be used only with naturally aspirated 4 cycle engines running at an idle and under no load. We recommend keeping any run of hose as short as possible preferably 11' or under and sized to include ambient air to cool the exhaust temperatures. This hose is designed to handle frequent temperatures up to 400° and intermittent temperatures to 600°. When using Crushproof hose for the first time, watch closely to verify that the exhaust is exiting the building as designed. IF YOU SEE ANY EXHAUST COMING BACK INTO THE SPACE, THE HOSE IS NOT BEING USED PROPERLY. TURN THE VEHICLE OFF IMMEDIATELY AND CALL OUR EXPERTS.
