WSM Lid Hinge options

Here's the one I put on my 22.5" WSM. Hinge was $5.00 from HD. Took 10 minutes to put on- works perfectly fine for me. Opens and closes awesome. Nice slim profile so my cover fits on it. Only drawback is it's bolted on- I know some folks like to be able to remove the lid to use on other kettles, and though I could remove the 3 bolts, it's not convenient for that. But, for me, it's fine. I've had this WSM for 6 years and have never used the lid on anything else, so that wasn't an issue for me.

I really, really like this. How has it been holding up? Seems like a lot of torque on the hinge when open.
