Ducting setup straighten air flow


#1

I have a 6" ducting set up I’m trying to get my air flow a little straighter I may sound dumb asking this but what kind of clips like in this picture I’m gonna attach can I use with out damaging the ducting and that will hold in place thanks for any input

If it’s the bend you’re worried about go buy a metal elbow. Cheap. But if you want to use clips, I’d put a tie wrap around the duct and clip to the tie wrap as to not tear the duct. if you must go to the duct, put some metal tape or duct tape around it for extra thickness as to not poke through.

I do the tie wrap method with reusable tie wraps. I clamp on to the excess tie wrap and clip it to a tent bar in such a way I get the angle I want.

This is outside the tent but you can clip to the tie wrap and use string or wire to string it just how you want it.

Depending I prefer metal pipe less restriction less noise less potential for leaks

I agree With @Matthew420 and @Donaldj
A metal elbow would be best and will prevent any restrictions :+1:

I pull excess flex duct right out of tent (or did on last grow) so I could compress it straight not at bends and was as easy as masking tape to keep it stacked together
