Dennis, I'm Interested by this and the heat shield...Maybe some other accessories if possible.
I can't use the website because of Quebec Canada shipping destination

Here they are.. This is only the two SS machined/threaded rods with the plate to bolt them with the tiny bolts already on the door. Does not include the SS heat shield. Which is also available.

Too many grills shipped with the rear heat shield. We have them both in stock.

Might thoughts exactly. Not sure what's the problem we're trying to solve with the extra heat shield?? My 23" has never had one and I haven't see any problem with the knob. :smt017

Just placed my order for the new rear door - sans heat shield.

The upgrade is only the two machined rods that are actually bolted to the rear doors.. welding caused too much distortion and so they use some high tech electric fusing machine to attach a little plate with two small bolts.

So...I ordered and received the locking rods and the above linked heat shield. The rods are great! Unfortunately, the heat shield doesn't fit -- a bit too wide. Seems to be sized for the front vent heat shield, not the gas port door.

Same rods as came standard on my 32". They work great and easily installed. That door will never move again! :)

Dennis in your opinion is the shield a need to have like others have said i never had a issue either 

Not necessary because the door assembly is above the floor of the grill and ash will not easily get to the door.

My new gas door rods arrived today. But, I can't install them right now because I've got the cold smoker running - smoking my bacon. If I get a chance after the bacon comes off in a couple more hours, I might give it a go, seeing as we're suppose to see rain for the next 2 days. Fingers crossed that I can get the old nuts off the existing door. They've not been touched since I've owned it. Will report back when I get it finished.

Socket wrench did the trick on mine, but not as old as yours.

Well, I started. I got one screw off each rod on the door. They came off quite easily, in fact. My sockets are too thick to go on top of the other ones - the nuts are right next to the rod. Will need an open-end box wrench (9/32"), but of course I don't have one that size in my toolbox. It wouldn't be a project without at least one trip to the hardware store!

:smt046 Exactly, Tony, you and I must have the same toolbox.
