If you are ordering this base for a hookah that is not one of our Nammor Hookahs or Egyptian Hookahs, please make sure to measure the diameter of your hookah's base grommet along with the length of your downstem to ensure that there is enough room for your hookah stem to fit snugly.
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.
Large: The large Luxor base will fit our Egyptian Pharaoh
Hookah and King Tut hookahs
. It measures 12 inches in height and the diameter of the opening is 1.8 -1.87 inches.
