I have just recently re-habbed a 14 year old Kamado XL and have the top band slipping as soon as I open it after I had tightened it down. I read that the company that made clips no longer exists. Any thoughts?
The hinge I currently have can 't bolt the top lid on without burbing the front (lifting) to alighn the holes to bolt lower bracket.Then it now puts strain on the bolts and band when the lid is completly closed. It appears in other pic. of ( another persons post) that the rails are even with each other and not at an angle as mine are. Any thoughts.
