Can't go wrong with the Loveramics dosing trays, which are on sale right now. https://usa.loveramics.com/products/cha ... sing-trays I hand-threw my own version of these after using a friend's set, and it works great for both the Weber Key and Versalab M4 - which I think has even less space from funnel to top than the HGs and Key.

Unsure if it is due to granite worktops or not but my prime sits firmly in place and requires a good tug to move it.
Just wipe the granite and base of the grinder with a slightly damp microfibre cloth.
With both surfaces damp not wet if that makes sense....
Place the grinder firmly and leave it 5 minutes.
Its just like you glued it in place but can be moved when required.

Yep, I have mine sitting on a glass tabletop and it's as if it's glued on. No chance of it coming loose even when grinding the lightest roasts.

I don't think you've read and understood the thread. I asked for a popcorn lid for an HG-1P I own as Craig Lyn doesn't currently sell one. Someone suggested the Key lid exists and in theory is interchangeable. I point out that Weber doesn't have that part for sale separately.

Regardless, I wrote to ask CLS if they plan to make a cover and Craig was nice enough to send me a file that can be CNCd in the meantime before they have one up for sale.

So has anyone actually compared with the HG-2?
