  1. The Bamboo handle on my Red Big Joe sprintered last night. The lid dropped 3 inches while closing but no damage was done to the base and I was not hurt in the incident. I'm already waiting for a replacement for my cracked bases which are on back order. The broken handle just ices the cake on some bad luck. I already notified KJ support. I should've replaced the handle a while ago. I was waiting for the bases to come-in to order the new HDPE handles. It's an accident that could've been far more dangerous. The old hinge design did nothing to stop the lid from crashing down on a 500F Big Joe. It's reminder why I'm so determined to make sure the new counterbalanced hinge is available for older models. The new hinge system would've never allowed the lid to drop dangerously like that. If my handle had broken in a much higher position, The potential for injury would have been higher if the lid came crashing down with it's full weight. Lady Luck was on my side the handle split when the lid was almost closed. Here's some pics from the damaged handle on the Joe.
