Thanks to whoever posted this!  Got lucky with the fit. 

Going forward, the Stanley tripod flashlight will stay home.

    It was a cool light idea. However, couldn't help but notice you have a Rutland on the dome and Nomex on the base. Why? :-?

    @NPHuskerFL,

    The Rutland is on the dome with a completely stripped base.  This was by choice, considering that eggs crack.  Fire box, fire ring, or base.  Also it keeps the gasket away from the heat.  Looks almost like new with it on the dome.  Not that grease or sauce in the Fibers would hurt.  If a base does crack, I just strip the new base's gasket and carry on.

    @Focker‌ I only ask because ya mainly see Rutland installed to the base. I would venture to say because there's less of an opportunity for fibers to fall into food (that would seem the logical reason). But, hey if it's working for you that's all that matters.
    Back to the light. Did you have to order it? & I'm wondering if it would fit LG or XL for eggers that would want that sort of setup? Pretty cool man!

    Assuming that any fibers did fall onto the food, there is no health risk there.  Sounds like a good idea to me.

    @NPHuskerFL-jumping in here as I have that light on the older style (narrow handle) LBGE.  I found the light at my local BGE dealer (who also sells webers).  Not sure about the XL fit but if you find it locally, I'm sure you can measure the distance between the bracket holes.  FWIW-

    That crossed my mind for a second, but came to the conclusion that this will not happen, and so far, it hasn't.  Even if it does, I'm not concerned with the alleged health risks.

    I have not witnessed falling fibers nor have I seen them in my food. 

    Ordered it for around $24 on Amazon.  Make sure it is #6503 as there are at least two different Q light models out there.  I did have to bend it slightly to fit.  This light will work on the smaller wooden handle bands for either size.  Plan is to order another at some point for my large.  It is a nice bolt on accessory.  You can expect quality and durability from Weber as well.

    Is it a push button/switch to turn them on? Do they turn on with movement? Might pick one up for camping in a few weeks
  • FockerFocker Posts: 2,072
    Yea, push button with sensor to light when open.  Push button to turn on when grilling, turn off when finished.

    @WeberWho?‌ Dan had one of those lights at his store but no price on it. Was going to go back and ask then forgot all about it until now.

    @Focker‌ & @The Naked Whiz‌ The "alleged" health risks I've read about with Rutland on dome seemed like a reach to me. I don't see a difference on installing on dome vs base. On the base I see food etc getting on gasket (but, no biggie), on the dome gasket would likely stay cleaner. I can see it being easier to install on the base only if somebody didn't want to remove the dome to install it. Like I said was just curious. I still have original gasket (I think it's the nomex gasket) but, when it fails I go to the Rutland.
    I'm gonna go check at my BGE dealer today on the light as they also sell Webers. Thanks for the 411

    The Rutland gaskets are much cheaper than Amazon if you buy from RRP.
