This hinge upgrade eliminates the need of placing the lid on the floor when checking your cooks, its unique design means you can lift the lid and it will lock in the upright position. When ready to resume cooking you pull the lid upwards and the latch system allows the lid to shut.
If you did want to remove the lid completely, simply remove the hinge pin and your smoker lid can be fully removed.
It comes with instructions and all screws for easy install.
But please be aware you will need to drill into the body of your Weber possibly voiding its warranty.
If buying with a gasket, fit the hinge first.
The plain steel version is lower cost as you can paint it yourself, listed stocks of this version!
