Slant Fin End Caps

reneophyteDecember 16, 2011

There appear to be 2 types of end caps for Slant Fin baseboard: hinged and unhinged.

I like the smaller, minimal look of the unhinged better, but see mostly the hinged kind installed.

This may be a stupid question, but what's the difference, ie, when is one used and not the other, aside from aesthetics?

Thx,

Paul

Hinged caps are used when easy access is desired to valves and bleeders.
