Prevent Small Dab Rig From Tipping and Falling With an Enail

Time needed: 1 minute.How to keep a small dab rig (like a mini tube or banger hanger) from falling/tipping over after attaching an e-nail heating coil:
  • Center the Weight: The main thing is to understand how the balance works with your specific piece. Some have a stem that extends further away and a base which is relatively small which both contribute to tipping. E-nail coils may contribute to this by adding weight and leverage. If the base is not heavy or sturdy enough this matters even more. Also, a stem which makes the nail extend too far outward could be contributing. The good news is this is usually a simple fix…
  • Rule of Thumb: Inward Not Outward: Most people will naturally point the coil cable away from the rig instead of turning it inward (see diagram at bottom). This causes your dab rig to become unbalanced and tip over. Sometimes it may not immediately tip over on you until something moves it or until the cord gets yanked. In most cases if you just point the e-nail coil back towards the rig it will fix this completely.
  • (Optional/Bonus): Use a Dropdown Glass Adapter: If re-positioning doesn’t quite do it you can go a step further and get a $10 dropdown glass adapter which can help to further bring the nail inwards towards the rig center. It also can lower the center of gravity instead of bringing it way up and away from the rig. If the rig has an angled joint it may also help to get a simple 45 degree adapter. The adapter brings the dab nail upwards and inwards, instead of outwards. A dropdown adapter also create an effective “loop” that brings the coil weight back towards the rig and restores balance.
