Wondering if anyone has any ideas about a pot lifter for the
BPL firelite 1300 cook set
The MSR LiteLifter weights in at 1oz from MSR's site. Is there anything out there lighter? I know 1oz is hard to beat but any Ideas would be awsome.

A skeletonized aluminum potlifter is about as light as they get. I took the steel handles off my JetBoil 1.5 L. pot & use teh MSR lifter myself.

I find the MSR LiteLifter pretty good myself, and use it most of the time.

For me it is the MSR litelifter, they are reliable and grip well.

The lifter for the Trangia set is lighter, but very hard to find without the set. I've even tried to get one directly from Sweden with no luck. Maybe BPL could order a bunch of them?

Has anyone pared down the LiteLifter? Just curious if putting holes in the broad sides makes an appreciable weight savings.

Hi Troy! By jumping through unimaginable hoops I did manage to score a Mini Trangia pot lifter, and It weighs in at 19 g. First I went to Trangia.SE, but couldn't find an English page. Then I went to where they assured me that they had the mini lifter in stock, but what they sent was the regular MSR type lifter and claimed that was the only one Trangia makes. Finally REI happened to have one kicking around that had become separated from the kit, so they sold it to me. Basically, it resembles the mini condiment tongs found at salad bars made of one piece spring steel. Next time I'll just modify one of these, because I don't think Trangia is going to let go of theirs.
Happy trails!

I use an imitation Trangia lifter bought from a "disposal" store. No holes in it, so I drilled everywhere I could, in the end I saved 5g (after some filing as well)Tot weight now about 25g
One feature I like on the MSR is the red handles, sometime I have to search for my dull aluminum ones. I see if I find some red paint.

I believe the official material your UL lifter is made of is
