Well, we picked up a new XL this morning, and it is now sitting unassembled in the living room. And no, it won't stay there even though it would make winter cooks a whole lot more comfortable; at least for a short while. Digressing.. My actual question is what does the new spring assist lift look like? I got one with the egg, but it is different that the one at the store and am wondering which is the new one? Never seen a picture of the "new and improved" lift, so don't know which is which. Anyone got a picture of the new one?

    <p />Smoke2much,
    Here`s a pic of mine, which as far as I know is one of the originals..actually didn`t know that there was a new can see more pics of it in the Tips section of my website...[p]Wess

    Thanks for the quick reply and the pic's. It is totally different from what I have. I am guessing what they may have given me is the springs and hinge assembly from a large egg as I seem to have parts that look like - (remember they are still in the bag) the ones in your pic. Is yours the retrofit kit mentioned on the home page? If so, I wonder what the original looked like. Maybe too they gave me both.

  • Smoke2much, you need the new assembly. Not sure which one Wess has pictured.

    tnslagamater,[p]I am confused. The XL's I have---one bought 2 weeks ago-- have the same assembly as Wess shows. Are you now saying that there is NOW yet another assembly?[p]As for the springs I took them off and will not put them back on. They pull up the back of the dome and allow far too much in and out.
