That's why you'd fab up a folding bracket that would be spring loaded to keep it in the "open" position it might release the spring to lock it back in the other direction, or perhaps just make a manual lock and release if it'd be too much work to engineer an automatic one.
Which makes me wonder why they just didn't do that in the first place. It's not as if you'd be sacrificing much, if any strength in the grill with a nice strong metal hinge. And all of the un-bumped heads would surely be worth the slight extra cost, heh.
