I don't use the cover that came with the WSM. The Weber 7452 premium kettle cover from Amazon for $17.99 works much better for me. It slips over without all the struggle.
edit: This is for the 18 incher.

why have little straps at the opening to get hung on everything as you take it off or put it on and then nothing to strap it to at the bottom
