You can peel or slide some of the fins off the end of the heater pipe and put an elbow there. Add some short pieces of pipe and couplings to get it to fit exactly.

They do make a trim piece that fits over the two ends of the baseboards in the corner although you may have to look around for a piece that fits the make and model you have.


Do you get coverage you can count on? From the bag of fertilizer? From your lawn sprinklers?
