OK my ring just slipped…. Help
Did a big cook today (post coming soon), afterwards I decided to do a clean burn as the lump I had in there has been used many times and everything just needed a good cleaning. So I opened up the vents and let it go. It only got up to ~700. I got this nifty little LED grill light on clearance ($4) at Wal-Mart, So I figured I would try it on. It just snaps around the handle and you can move the head around. Well while I was putting it on I pressed down on the handle not hard mind you to snap the light around. And my top ring slid down. I was like how in the heck did that happen. SO I gripped a rag and held the top down and slid it back up. I checked the tightness of the bolts and I cannot tighten them any more (well I could but it would either break or strip out). Now a few more details. I have the spring spacers and stainless steel bolts in the rings. Now I know steel expands when hot but it shouldn’t slide like that should it. I am going to wait till it cools off and check it again. But this makes me real nervous. Suggestions Help… has this happen to anyone else?
