Hold down clips

I have a feeling that my Trill '74 had hold down clips for the spiders on the stove.
Does anyone have a picture or description of these beasts? I don't even know how they would have fitted.

These forums are an unbelievable resource!

Spider? I call them grates...
The clips are just V-shapes with a jog in one leg that goes into the tiny hole in the stovetop. My stove has 2 clips for each grate.

Top one is installed holding the grate secure.
Bottom one is removed to show the clip itself.

My grandparents (born in the 1870s) called frying pans 'spiders'.

Yo are correct that meridian R/V has them - I found them today.
Sadly they cost with tax almost $25.00 for the pair, so maybe I will continue to wrap the grates in a towel and put them in the sink!
I'll see if I can make something that will do the job.

Cheers

I remember pre-hack someone made the clips out of paperclips! Shoot, it would be worth trying....

My stove has two screws through the top that when removed lets you remove the top and get full access to the burners. If I remember right, I think that the lower pan can now be unscrewed from the counter top.

If it is a Trillium like mine there is a hidden clip on each side. Put something thin under the lip of the stove in the middle of the side and pry the stove top up. Mine was corroded under, so took some force - be careful not to bend the stove top.
With the top removed the pan is held in by 4 tiny screws but you have to disconnect and remove the burners first.

Cheers

here are some photos of the clips in question from a Brown stove in a Trillium 1300. the metal is quite thin and a bit springy, My opinion is that it would be fairly easy to bend something similar that would work using basic tools (tin snips and needle nose pliers).

Thanks for going to so much trouble.
It certainly looks as if I could bend something up.
Thanks again

Cheers

These look like the same clips which came with our stove in our Trillium.
