-Made grill lid not fit correctly
-Fell off when lid was taken on and off grill
-Need to balance tools or else it will be heavy on one side and fall off
-gets hot and can burn if you accidentally touch it
Unfortunately there are two issues:
1. This is the second such holder I have had. The first rusted out after about 10 years, even though my grill is covered with a Weber grill cover.
2. This tool holder makes the Weber grill cover for the 22 inch grill very tight, so tight it is almost impossible to remove the cover or put it back on the grill without knocking the tool holder off the grill onto the deck. More than once or twice I have had to scramble to pick up hot tools which were sliding across the deck.
Put simply, it's a set of hooks to hang grill tools. One might ask what more I might want from a set of hooks--and before I got this I was thinking the same thing.
There are a couple of small problems in my opinion, however..
First, the clips that hang over the lip of the grill to keep the hooks hanging are a little loose. Occasionally when I'm putting the grill lid on or taking it off, I'll shift the tool holder a bit which can cause it to dangle from a single clip (there is one at each end). This also sometimes happens when I'm lifting a tool off the hook. This has never caused the set of tools to completely fall, in my experience, but I have a feeling one day it might. Either way, if I didn't notice, and pulled a tool off the other end, I imagine it could mean washing all of my tools before continuing to grill. With time sensitive meats, that might be a problem.
The second problem I have is somewhat related--the hooks themeslves are a bit thick at the tips. This is because the metal is folded over, so it's a bit more sturdy, which is nice. However, it causes the side effect of being too thick for the hole on the end of my set of tongs (OXO Good Grips 12" tongs, for anyone who might have the same issue come up--I think they're fairly common tongs). I wound up having to buy a new set of grill-specific utensils, rather than using my kitchen tongs on the grill. Something I probably would have done anyway, but the fact that I couldn't hold the tongs the way they were intended was a bit of a pain. I solved this with those tongs by just resting the tongs themselves on the hook, rather than using the built in hook hole.Read more ›
Overall, I really am happy with this purchase. I had no issues with my grill lid not closing all the way after a tiny bit of sanding. There were a few minor issues that I ran into (but being an engineer) I was able to provide cheap fixes that allows this product to work wonderfully.
After using this item and reading some of the problems that other users hadi came up with a few solutions that work well for me.
Prob 1: the metal on the holders gets hot
My solution: get some heat resistant rubber and place it around the areas that directly touch the grill this preventing heat transfer to the metal
Prob 2: tools don't fit
My solution: simply get some rope or zip ties and make loops around your tools that allow them to easily hang on the hook
Prob 3: grill lid doesn't close all of the way
My solution: take A little sandpaper and grind down the lip of the grill where you wish to have the tool holder resting (I suggest using an electric sander)
Overall, I would suggest this product. Not only is it cheap, but it works really well with a f minor modifications
