Bought to replace an old part that had started to rust. Works as expected
Exactly as described.
Replacement lid locking bar arrived as promised and was quick and easy to fit.
It prompted me to think why the original one should snap but after twice weekly movements over 8 years I imagine it was feeling a bit weary.
I wasn't sure whether my eglu was a mark 2 version but this fits fine. I removed 4screws to take off the front of the eglu to remove old bar and fit the new one. Pretty straight forward and an electric screwdriver helped. Didn't realise the linch pin wasn't included though...
The bar meant that we could extend the life of the classic as other than the broken bar it was in good condition. Easy to fit and as wth all Omlet products works perfectly.
The replacement was a little difficult due to the screws but we got there with grit and determination and WD40! Thank you for having these replacement parts as they extend the life of the product!
CONTRARY TO ABOVE REVIEW, THE BEST WAY TO REPLACE/INSTALL IS TO REMOVE THE 4 SCREWS AT FRONT OF EGLU CLASSIC, THEN NEW LOCKING BAR CAN BE EASILY PLACED IN
Does the job!
I thought I'd clarify what this is, as it's not clear from the Omlet website and there's no picture (I have submitted one for you Omlet, hint, hint !)
It's the flat black metal piece which slides into the bottom of the Eglu Classic to secure the top on, with the lynch-pin at one end which you have to remove and slide this bar across to remove the lid to clean inside it.
This is just the bar, doesn't include the pin.
I needed a replacement as after several years ours had rusted through at the non-pin end and the tab there was about to break off.
It was a bit difficult to get out initially, as it has notches to prevent you pulling it out too far, but persevere and it will slide all the way out - either pull the non-pin end, or of the tab breaks off like mine then stick a screwdriver through the pin-hole and pull it out using that as I did.
Sliding the new one in was easy.
