This must be scary experience, glad I decided go ahead secure these woodstove pipe with screws. Worth little effort for this.
This is one reason why I don't want any glass window on woodstove, if it cracks and stove pipe broke off. Then it will be disastrous!

The guy did not do a very good job in making the stove pipe was installed correctly. We could of had a horrible forest fire as there was no way to call 911 fast enough
