My regular grate gripper doesn't fit my half moon cast iron cooking grates.  What do other XL owners use?

    ThirdeyeQ's Third Hand tool. Hard to get right now as he is only making a limited amount & is backed up on orders. BGE's grid lifter is OK but not as functional (doesn't hold as much weight or hang as easy). Other vendors (like Steven Raichlen) sell a version of the grid lifter (same tool different brand).
