Getting the HOTBIN Lid to Stay in Place

The lid of the HOTBIN offers one really handy feature which you may not know about – it is capable of staying open in place to allow easy feeding of the HOTBIN.  When adding waste, push the lid back so it’s practically vertical to the body of the HOTBIN, yes that’s even past the squeak! Push it back to the point as detailed in the photo and it should stay in place to allowing you to add in your waste and take a temperature reading without having to prop it open or have it fall on your head!

You may have tried pushing it back before but heard that “squeak” and stopped. Please persist as that “squeak” is simply the noise caused by  friction between the material. So keep pushing back until it stays in place (as pictured) but no further.
