Nest Handler for Older Egg

Will the newer Nest Handler work with my older egg? It is  around 9 - 12 years old. It still had the original band on it and the nest only had the one bolt hole on it, where the newer nest has two. Or is there a handler for the older models?

Thanks!

    Was looking for the older handler for my Large a few months ago, no luck!
    This is all BGE has now:

    So if you have the old box style hinge then no (see image below) the new inEGGrated Nest will not fit. You'll have to use the old style handler with the original nest. 



    But if your old EGG was upgraded to the new side hinge then yes it'll fit.

    I have an older egg.  I upgraded to the new hinge style last year and the new inEGGrated Nest with XL Egg Mates this year.  I bought the egg when I had a large patio and a table fit the space well.  Now I have a smaller patio and I love the ability to move the egg out of the way when not in use.
