Disconnecting A Propane Gas Bottle

When you’re ready to change your propane cylinder, just follow the following steps for a safe and secure process:

  1. Turn the valve hand wheel off (clockwise rotation)
  2. Turn off the gas tap fitted to the appliance. Wait until the burner and pilot lights have gone out. -Never remove the regulator (or connecting nut) with the bottle valve open, so make sure its closed!
  3. Use a spanner to remove the regulator. Remember, it’s a Left hand thread so you will need to turn clockwise.
  4. Replace the protective plug into the valve outlet
