Now into the second month of autumn here in Oz we are proud to release our brand new accessory the SMIâ„˘ Aussie Boomerang Swing Arm Kookaâ„˘ another great innovation by Slot Me Inâ„˘.
Designed and manufactured specifically for THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKERâ„˘ 450, 600 & 900 models it will transform your cooking horizons and add another dimension to the â€śoriginalâ€ť and total â€śflat packâ€ť fire pit & camp cooker.
It consists of 100% Aussie material and is 100% Aussie made by SLOT ME INâ„˘ from the same 4mm thick steel that THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKERâ„˘ 450, 600 & 900 models are made from. We use 4mm thick BlueScope XLERPLATEÂ® TRU-SPECâ„˘ steel for the upper swing arm (â€śBOOMERANGâ€ť shaped arm) and also for the lower connecting arm that attaches to either end of all existing WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKERSâ„˘, models 450, 600 & 900. There is a length of steel tube (800mm) and a locking safety collar in the kit as well.
The SMIâ„˘ Aussie Boomerang Swing Arm Kookaâ„˘ allows you to hang billyâ€™s and camp ovens (from their wire handles) directly over the fire with a secure adjustable height control from the upper â€śboomerangâ€ť swing arm in two ways, either from the 5 notch locations or in any of the 10 holes (with the aid of butchers hooks etc, not included in the kit).
To install the SMIâ„˘ Aussie Boomerang Swing Arm Kookaâ„˘ you simply select which end you would like it to operate from. Next â€śslotâ€ť the lower support arm into position where the slot is located in the short end of THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKERâ„˘ followed by inserting the length of tube vertically through the 2 locating holes in the tabs on the lower arm. Next slide the safety collar down onto the vertical tube which you can lock by turning and tightening the wing nut in, then slide on the upper â€śboomerangâ€ť swing arm onto the vertical tube through the 2 locating tabs and your done in less than a minute. The safety collar can be positioned to your desired height and this gives you peace of mind that your cook up hanging over the fire is secure.
The upper â€śboomerangâ€ť swing arm can be swung in a 360 Í¦ circle so when itâ€™s not being used to cook with you can hang cookware from it away from the fire as well. Both the upper â€śboomerangâ€ť swing arm and lower arm have our patented POZILIFTâ„˘ points laser cut out of them so you can use the SMIâ„˘ MULTI-TOOL to remove them with or re- position them with as well. Care should be taken (use heat resistant gloves) to tighten the wing nut on the safety collar when adjusting the height if the fire is burning. Likewise the weight hung from the upper â€śboomerangâ€ť swing arm needs to be less than the fire pit body and fuel being burnt so as not to risk tipping the fire pit. Guide line instructions and safety tips come with each kit for use. Another great feature is you can use it on any surface as you donâ€™t need to spike the tube into the ground, it will work on decks, lawns, paved areas, sand, rock or wherever you decide to have a cook up on THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKERâ„˘.
We are looking to adapt it to our other 4 models of fire pit/cookers THE WEDGE FIRE PITâ„˘ 500, 800, 1100 models and THE WOMBAT FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER â„˘ shortly as well. Stay tuned for updates.
We will be at FARM WORLD 2018 April 12 â€“ 15 inclusive (see the â€śshowsâ€ť link for details) where we will be at sites 258-259 with OUTBACK CAMPERS demonstrating it and our other products, hope to see you there, drop in and say hello and ask for a demonstration.
It is available now for $149.00 (*plus shipping). *Please note not all authorized SLOT ME INâ„˘ distributors will carry it and as such it may need to be ordered in as a special purchase order and could attract a freight (shipping) cost into store.
Happy cooking, camping, travels and enjoy your fire responsibly.
Cheers, Waz from Oz
