In my video on the VARGO Titanium Hexagon Wood Stove I had made the comment that I didn't like how the stove kept falling apart. Well I got a comment from notreallydaedalus

notreallydaedalus said,"It looks like you could stick a pin or toothpick in that assembly slot, sort of like a cotter pin, to hold the assembled stove together."

So I give notreallydaedalus' idea a try in this video.

Thanks notreallydaedalus,
and thank you for watching my video,

I think even a paper clip would work.
I have this stove and haven't had the problem. It looks like you didn't snap the tab into the slot all the way. When I unfold mine the spring tab fits snuggly into the slot like yours - not enough to hold it shut well - but you keep pressing the slot onto the spring tab and it snaps in. It takes a bit of pressure to snap it shut. But if yours is different then this pin solution looks perfect!

A bobby pin works perfectly for me for me, and its dirt cheap. It also seems that when the bottom holes are blocked by coals, the "franklin" door has to stay open for it to get enough oxygen. To solved that, I drilled extra holes in all of the panels for better air flow.

Very good!

Maybe a paperclip.

This is just poor design execution by Vargo. I mean to build a neat stove and neat concept and leave such an obvious flaw. Look at Firebox and how many iterations it takes to improve it but a good final product shouldn't have these problems.

It shipped with a Cotter Pin. Look through your packaging.
