A little too tight and the slotted end would compress. A little too loose and it could be expanded to accommodate. In either case, it still leads to an ill fit and damage to the mortise over time. Then again, these pipes were intended to be used with filters. So, the original idea may have had something to do with that. All I know for sure is that I hate 'em.
