Thank you. The spring handle is a steel rod slipped through a spring between a steel bracket. The two push nuts (painted yellow) hold the bolt and spring in place. The bracket is fastened to the lid with four 1/2 inch #10 stainless steel bolts. On the back side of the lid where the spring handle bolts come through I fastened a piece of 1" wide steel bar about 6 inches long. This bar is bent in a U-shape to serve as a lid hanger. I had read about some people having trouble with their lid blowing around in a good wind, if it was up, or not wanting to put the greasy thing down on the patio. I find my contraption holds quite solid and perfectly perpendicular.
