Question. I have a weber One Touch Gold 22.5 and I was wondering if anyone knows where to find something that will hold the lid on the side or a lid hook or something along those lines. They don't make the slide aside anymore and I was curious if Weber makes something I missed somewhere or if anyone knows how to make one into the kettle itself.


Thanks in advance for the info

 i'd imagine you could put a stainless steel L-bracket under the lid by the edge but i personally wouldnt want to screw into the powder coat.

If you can't find an old slide aside maybe you can just bend some thick wire to fashion your own.  Maybe with some old shopping cart or something.  

 Mine has what amounts to an L bracket inside the lid.  But it's also coated.  If you want to do that with your own you could probably drill a hole and then use some sort of heatproof glue/sealer to goop around it before you thread the bolt through.  It's near the very edge and placement will be key so it will fit around the curve properly.  I'm trying to find a picture online but can't.  If you're deciding to go this route I'll run out to the shop and take a pic.

One thing I would change if I could is to crimp the end a little to catch the edge of the grill.  It's just a flat piece and if you bump it hard enough the lid can fall off.  So I make sure to always hook the lid over the side of the grill that faces the yard so it will fall onto grass.  If you make your own be sure to add that little adjustment.

I bought that same grill last year,and mine has a a bracket inside the lid, which allows you to hang the top on the handle. You sure that your's doesn't have it? Double check... it would be easy to miss.

I am pretty sure all Webers have a hook inside the lid.  Was it defective?
