Your right, you sure do have a big thing, sure is a big one!
Mine is only about 3" long but it does the job, ok.
I don't know what I'd do if I had a thing as big as yours!!!
Your probably right, good luck taking it off & better luck putting it back on when you get the urge to use it again.
Man,you must have some big coals to go with your thing, hey?
