The fire pit cover/snuffers are a good way to keep your fire pit free of mother nature and kids and animals when not in use. Additionally, the cover/snuffer also snuffs out a fire when you are ready to leave the area. There are many sizes, styles, shapes, and colors to choose from enabling you to get the right one for your fire pit. The right cover/snuffer/lid will extend the life of your fire pit.
If you must pick up the cover/snuffer while it is still hot, be sure to wear heat resistant gloves to protect your hands from burns.
These covers are made of several different materials depending on the manufacturer. They are painted or powder coated with a high temp UV resistant paint over aluminum, galvanized steel, or stainless steel. There are copper lids made for the Sierra copper fire pits as well.
