BJ latch issue

Recommended Posts

After a high heat pizza cook the other day, I noticed I couldn't get my (2018) BJ to latch. I found the latch "tab" on the lid was misaligned with with the latch on the bottom portion, but I COULD get it to latch if I pressed a bit to the right at the same time as pressing down, to correct the alignment.


Anyone seen this? 


I haven't done any band adjustments since I got my Big Joe ~6 months ago. I also haven't looked too carefully at the band system on my grill since it was dark when I discovered this but I'm hoping I can correct the alignment by loosening the bands, rotating the latch to correct alignment, then tightening back up.
