(3.79L) threaded plastic jar; a detachable double cone, which is threaded on one end for attaching the threaded plastic jar; and, has a 4.5" (114mm) dia. flanged opening on the other, which fits the opening of the H-4249P sand cone plate. (order separately). The cone has a brass cylindrical valve with a 0.5" (12.7mm) dia. orifice and stops that prevent the valve from rotating past the completely open or completely closed positions.
