Default Fermwrap for Conical?

I recently purchased one of the 7 gallon stainless steel conicals from ebay. Now I am working on building my fermentation chamber out of a spare fridge. Does anyone use a Fermwrap heater on a conical? Does it go around the upper part of the fermenter or around the cone?

Does anyone have any other methods for heating a conical fermenter?

Thanks!
Doug

I use a heating pad until fermentation starts. Then the problem is keeping it cool enough.

Yes I have used it on my conical. Its is much easier to wrap it on a carboy but it still works on the conical. I wrap it to the top half I never tried it on the cone part.
