You insert the thermo probes through a hole in side of barrel (air sealing grommet optional). When removing or inserting grates/fire basket, you simply pull the long probes out till they are barely inserted. Then drop basket and grates in, then push thermos back into position.

The UDS is a set and forget setup. Meaning you should never have to open it up in the middle of a cook to mess with coals, so this process only has to be done once for each cook. A lot more accurate readings, and gives you peace of mind that the temps you are reading are dead nuts on.

Not OT at all, a valid question.
