Knob Where You Need It! was co-founded and developed by brothers Adam & Cory Civilla, two grilling enthusiasts who saw a way to make propane grilling even more safe, convenient and enjoyable.  The idea for Knob Where You Need It! was born in the summer of 2013 on a patio outside of Minneapolis, MN. As Adam went to turn off the propane tank on a friend’s grill, ducking under the side table while awkwardly contorting his body to steer clear of the sizzling hot grill body he said, “Why don’t these things [grills] come with a way to turn the gas on and off from a place you can reach?” To which his buddy retorted, “I don’t know, man, why don’t you make something?” So, he did. And here we are.
