A slot of some sort would really help on safety side of things. And still trying to brainstorming other options for better securing the handle.I hear it is already sold out. i am not sure about that heat shield solution though. Why is there not just a wooden hole you can stick it in.
I think it looks pretty dangerous if you ask me. But i only see it on pictures not in real life.
By the time it is in a place I feel comfortable the cord is then too short to reach my position.
