The little chain that you see hanging from your grill is a matchstick holder that helps you light the grill manually. If the ignition is not working then you can use this to light the grill. The process of doing so is very simple. If you are wondering what to do with the chain and how it is going to help you light the grill then here is how you can light the gas grill with the chain. Take a look.

Step 1: Open the lid and make sure that all the knobs are turned off on the grill.

Step 2: Turn on the gas supply of the grill.

Step 3: You need to put a match in the matchstick holder and then light it. Insert the match holder with the burning match down the grill grates. 

Step 4: The match holder should be close to the burners. Turn on the burner that the match is closest to.

Step 5: Check if the flame is lit. There should be a flame on the grill. Repeat all the steps for the remaining burners to light them up.
