Add the fernco and a hair dryer, then tighten the clamps.
Having a non-glued connection on the rest of the parts allows the boot dryer to be adjusted to different sizes of boots, shoes, gloves, hats, etc. It also allows it to be torn down and stored.
The hairdryer attached to the Y is directional, so whatever you think will take longer to dry you want to point the hairdryer towards.
There are four settings on the hairdryer: high, low, cool high and cool low. In order to use the cool air functions you have to tape the cool button in the on position and select the high or low setting.
I made this boot dryer two years ago. I have used all the settings and the PVC has held up beautifully.
The only complaint I can give you is that it isn’t quiet but it dries fairly quick!
Could you use one of these in your home?
