we all know the whole purpose of a charcoal fire up charcoal...

but there's this handle wire that is attached to the top of the starter itself...

What is it there for?!?!

metal wire/handle i'm referring to is part of the little heat shield.

I would have no clue how to use the handle with amber coals ashy ready to go....

you sure that's what it's for ?
with a glove on, you use it to guide where the coals are going.
