Tiny These are replacement "Pyramid" style hookah bases for our Egyptian Hookahs but will fit on other hookahs of comparable size. These unique bases are covered in a white frosted coating with colored Arabic-style letterings on them and are very popular in the Middle East.
Note: Egyptian hookah glass bases are made by hand and therefore the diameter of the opening my vary slightly by a few centimeters from base to base. The replacement base that you receive may not fit your hookah shaft exactly. There are a few tricks you can do, however, that can make your hookah shaft fit more securely on the base:
If the opening on the base you receive is slightly too wide and your hookah stem leans to one side, you can correct this by affixing electrical tape around the hookah shaft. This is explained in further detail in our Hookah Love Blog Hookah 101 – Zen and Art of Hookah Maintenance.
If the base opening is slightly too small, we recommend wetting or applying lubricant to the base grommet and “twisting” the hookah stem into the hookah base. Boiling the rubber base grommet in hot water will soften the rubber as well so it will fit into the base more easily.
It's also important to note that because of the nature of Egyptian hand-made glass, small aesthetic flaws may be present including tiny nicks in the top lip of the glass or small patches of discoloration. These imperfections will in no way affect how well the base performs or hinder its sturdiness whatsoever.
