Anybody know any tricks to assembling stove pipe? Lowes does not do it. You're supposed to interlock the pipe at one end and continue down the seam until it locks into place. Uh-huh. And when you think you're making progress, snap! and it comes apart! Then you 1. wipe off the blood and 2. start all over.

Surely there's a trick to this...

 When I had to do this the thing that worked for me was folding the sides into one another almost until they form a heart shape. Make sure the groove and tongue are lined up and the should go together easily(yeah right). I know what you're going thru. I faced the same thing last year putting in my wood stove.  One things for sure, once they do lock together they won't come apart. Good luck.

Life sucks, get a helmet!
