Breath-A-Tech’s universal end cap is made from flexible silicone and fits all standard puffers. Some puffers with larger or more circular outlets may result in a tighter fit. To avoid damage to the end cap, first insert one side of the puffer across the widest distance of the end cap (pushing to slightly stretch the end cap opening) and then firmly but gently lever the other side into place.
