Outdoor Concepts -- OCI -- BBQ Grill Control Knob.

Outdoor Concepts is a company that can only be defined by changes. OCI has manufactured a lot of interesting products throughout the 2 decades we have worked with them and they are always making changes to their models even when we do not understand the need for these changes. These control knobs are the replacements for the Elite series of grills that evolved after the demise of DCS in America. The control knobs are heavy shiny metal but they are different from the original control knobs that came on the Elite model grills. Even though the design of the knobs is different all the important features are the same. These knobs fit all the Elite model appliances including all the grills and side burners.

OCI Control Knob Without Bezel.

This image shows the New OCI control knob installed onto the control valve stem. With the knob pressed all the way down onto the valve stem the base of the control knob Does Not press all the way in to the flat stainless steel control panel.

This is important to note because several clients have thought we sent them the wrong OCI knobs.

The bezel on the OCI Elite grills looks like it would install with the knob sinking into the round opening in the bezel but this Is Not The Case. As we can see here without the bezel the knob installs off the face of the barbecue not because the bezel is in the way but because that is where it properly mounts on the control panel of the gas grill.

OCI Knob and Bezel.

This image shows the new style OCI control knob installed on the grill with the decorative bezel in place. The round bezel is bolted to the control panel and because of the corcular style of the bezel it appears the knob would slide onto the valve stem until the base of the knob was inside the bezel. These new control knobs have a longer extension in the back so they will not sink into the round bezel. The bezel is a decoration and is not integral to using the barbecue grill. The knobs do not install to sink all the way down to the controls but are made to stick out. The round bezels are decorative.

A few customers thought this was an error but this is how the control knobs are installed and this is exactly how OCI designed the knobs to slide onto the valve stem.

oci knob with bezel

This image of the OCI control knob with the bezel appears as though the knob fots to the round indentation of the bezel but this is an optical illusion. The kn is actually pressed as fasr in and onto the control valve stem as possible. Although the knob will not sink into the round indentation of the OCI bezel this is how they are made to fit.

Without the bezel the knob does not slide all the way to the control panel. Even if we keep the bezel in place the control knob sticks out far enough that the round bezel is a garnish, not an impediment.

oci knob attachment extension for valve

The large image on the right side shows the control panel with the OCI control valve stem sticking out and the image abovee shows how the New OCI control valve has an extended sleeve that slides over the valve stem. The extension and the valve stem ensure that the knob cannot slide all the way down to allow the base of the control knob to touch the control panel. Instead the cntrol knob sticks out from the flat stainless control panel and the bezel uses this otherwise empty space to make a decorative frame around the OCI knob.
