New exhaust, tip for now

i am planning on getting a greddy exhaust but until then i guess ill just put on a tip… so i looked at my muffler and the tip on my 92 rs is like a foot and a half long because the muffler canister thing is perpendicular with the tip… so how do u put on a tip??? (i also think tips are gay but my stock one is like breaking and its better than stock…) help me please
