    Hi All I'm thinking of latching my middle section to the bottom bowl ..I saw a post some where on, can't find it.
    The reason I'm latching is I put a hinge on the WSM some times when I open the top the middle section moves away for the bottom bowl. It is a MPIA when it does happen.
    Thanks Dan

    Dan, Cajun Bandit sells cylinder locking kit that attaches your mid section to the legs. I haven't used it or seen it in person, so I can't offer an opinion.

    The one in the link looks like it has a flat bottom. That could be a problem with the lip at the joint of the WSM. You'd have to raise it up a little with washers or something.

    Never used them . Looks like one clip to me , that has to go under the door and hook to the opening . Would have to have the lid hinge across from it to prevent tipping . Don't think it holds it all together , like for lifting .

    Hi I'm not concerned in the lifting part. It is just when open the lid at times the middle section moves on bottom bowl.
    THanks Dan
