Chimney Pipe

I'm replacing some of the chimney pipe on my woodstove. This is the cheap black 6 " stovepipe. Is there a trick to getting the rear seam of the pipe to go together?
Thanks Dave M.

Lay it on the ground with the seam up...stand over the pipe and sort of push the sides of the pipe together with your feet down towards the middle of the pipe...you just want to keep it sort of close.
Start at one end...grasp both "sides" of the pipe with your hands like you are choking someone... start the male end into the female end and once you have them together push in and work your way on down toward the other end. Its not too hard...keep your thumbs right at the seam and sort of push down on the seam while pushing in from the sides with your hands. Once you get it going it should go ok.... IF you bugger up or kink the pipe you can gently pry open the female slot a tad with a screwdriver... dont do this unless absolutely neccesary as it will loosen the seam.

The real question is which way do you put the pipe in. If the overlap is on top, you can get stuff flowing down the chimney and out the joint. Best way is to have the insert on top.
