Now, I've got the proper kit.
To me, the outstanding feature of this kit is that does NOT have to be disassembled each time you put away the stove. Now, that's nice. When you pack up the stove, you simply wind the cables around the burner...

|The MSR Windboiler's burner, hanging kit, and canister stand all fit into the pot along with a 110g canister.|
|The spring clip attachment of the Windboiler's hanging kit.|
|Squeeze the spring clip and insert it into the air inlet on the windscreen|
|The Windboiler hanging kit's clips should lie flat against the windscreen.|
The clip on the left is incorrectly aligned. Rotate it 180°.
The clip on the right is properly aligned. Note that it lies flat.

The slider is the double angled metal tube that you see the cables going through in the above photo.

That's it. The MSR Windboiler's hanging kit. Very nice.

The item reviewed here was provided to me at no charge for the purposes of this review. I am under no obligation to review this or any other item. I am not compensated for my reviews in any fashion other than in some cases I am permitted to keep the item reviewed. Given that I have well over a 100 backpacking stoves, a free stove frankly isn't going to buy anyone a good review. Stove companies must measure up if they want a decent review here. I am an amatuer stove blogger; I make my living elsewhere, in the IT field. I fit blogging in as time permits. Inasmuch as my income is derived elsewhere, monetary issues do not influence the reviews on this blog. Yes, I do have advertisements on the blog. I typically derive about $1.00 USD per day from the advertisements (last I checked). This is a mere pittance and does not influence my reviews in the slightest. Revenue from the advertisements goes toward hosting fees, stove fuel, and the like. The blog is self supporting in that sense, and my wife is quite happy that I'm not using the family's income to run the blog, particularly given how tough the economy is these days.
