    Fire pot pin

    Just assembled 2 Star #3949
    While unpacking I found the fire pot pin in the bottom of the box.
    When I reinstalled it I found it very loose. Itís not going to fall out but I was wondering if this was correct.

    Yes, that is the norm. Based on my experience, it will feel a bit loose after you snap it in place. It has a bearing (similar to what you see on a socket wrench) which holds it in place.

    Congrats on the 2 Star, you are going to love it!

    Yes that is correct, we used to make it tighter but with the expansion and contraction of the metal in that area from all the heat they were difficult to remove at times. All the pin does is keep the fire pot from being pushed out of place from the feeding of pellets. We also used to have a cable lanyard attached to it but they didn't last long over the fire lol.

    The pin is 1/4” plus the ball and the hole is 5/16”
    There is no contact between the hole and the ball when when inserting the pin.
    Like I said, it’s not going anywhere I just wanted to know if that was correct
