Default Handles for WSM middle

Does anyone know or could recommend where I could get a couple of handles to attach to the middle section of my WSM 22.5"?

I have been to the Weber site and it looks like the only handles available are lid handles. Since they only use a single screw I'm not sure whether they wold be strong enough.

Thanks in advance.

Brian

I put the Genie garage door handles on mine, can't remember the model number right off but I'm sure someone on here has it. They fit almost perfect with just a minor adjustment with some pliers. They fit on the grate support bolts.

Thanks I will check into that. Hopefully someone will have the model number handy.

Weber Handles on Amazon
Unfortunately I don't think they are. If you look at the photo there is only one screw in the middle. I compared this to the handle on the Weber site and I think they are the same.

Thanks for the suggestion - I do appreciate it.

Garage door handles attached with the grate support bolts.

Here's what you do:

Take a ruler or a tape measurer. Measure the distance between the grate support mounting holes center to center. Take the measurement to your nearest HD, Lowes, Menards or Menards and buy garage door handles with the same, or nearly the same, measurement between the mounting holes.

Easy Peasy.

I just made my own out of some flat bar from Home Depot.
Sears Hardware had the exact nuts & bolts that Weber uses on their WSM.

"Pappy", nice job and thanks for the pics.
I'm going to try doing the same here to my WSMs.

Off the shelf at Wal-mart.......... $6 each
Wheels give it a wider base for better stability.
