Just whup out my 4 pound Bowie knife (all real lightweight hikers carry a 
couple of these) and whisper, "Down!"   OK, I knew it was going to get 
compicated if I added a moving part.  

Not a lot of experience with this yet, but I had no trouble coaxing the ring 
into the simmer position with match sticks.  Maybe it would be a good idea to 
add a couple small ears when you cut out the ring, to help the process.  How 
about a 1/4 inch tab on opposite sides, on both top and bottom edges of the 
simmer ring, to give something positive to push against?  Any other 
suggestions? -- Roy
