Dab Screw: Screw shaped insert that spins for spreading out your dabs evenly and provides directional airflow when it spins.

Difference Between Quartz And Glass Inserts?
Quartz and glass inserts are different due to the materials they are made out of. Quartz inserts are longer lasting, can handle slightly higher temps, and are easy to clean due to the high-quality quartz it is made from.

How To Size Out Your Banger Insert?
Inserts can come in a multitude of different shapes and sizes, so it is important to know what you are looking for. Following these guidelines can give you some insight as to what you need to check before you buy.
Determine the size: Banger size is important to consider. Some types of inserts are larger, and if they are not paired with a proper size banger, it can restrict airflow and cause your product to puddle in place.
Choose an appropriate insert: Choosing the right type of insert with your banger is also an important factor. Pearls and dishes are more suited for bucket style bangers, whereas capsules and screws would pair with a slurper style banger.
Measure, just in case: Inserts and bangers are measured in millimeters. For example: if you know your banger is 25mm in diameter and is 2mm thick, all you have to do is multiply your thickness by 2 and then subtract that from your diameter. 25mm - 4mm = 21mm. This is the size insert dish you would want or smaller.
How Do I Keep Dab Inserts Clean?
You can keep your dab inserts in tip top shape by cleaning them after each use. Iso dunks and cotton swabs are a huge help when it comes to cleaning your inserts. Heat can speed up your cleaning process, but you run the risk of cracking or breaking your insert, but we promise a little bit of elbow grease goes a long way.
Q-Tip Swabs: Dip into Iso and wipe the inside and all around each of your inserts.
