Adapters are an add-on, usually made of glass, which facilitates the fitting of two smoking components and allows them to work. Commonly available adapters are male and female joints and 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, etc.
What are the benefits of an adapter?
Most dabbing gear will not include the same fittings. If you want to use the same banger on your dab rigs, an adaptor will let you connect it with many glass components.
Many adapters are constructed of glass and are used to form a seal between two pieces of glass. Glass-to-glass adapters are becoming more popular because they function equally well and don’t have to be replaced as frequently.
How to use an adapter
It’s critical to get the size of your adapter and fittings correct. You’ll need to know the diameter of the bowl/banger—10mm, 12mm, 14mm, and so on—and the rig. You’ll also need to determine whether each piece is male or female. After obtaining the adapter with the necessary characteristics, slide it onto the bong/dab rig and set the bowl/banger on the other side.
