Connect Your Propane Tank


With today's propane tank safety valves, propane will no longer flow out of a tank simply by opening the hand wheel. Remember these tips:

  • Step 1: Make sure the tank service valve hand wheel is turned OFF (to the right) completely before connecting to your grill or other appliance.

  • Step 2: Check that the fitting that connects to the tank service valve is hand-tight on the tank valve before opening the valve hand wheel.

  • Step 3: If you do not have gas flowing to your grill, turn off your grill AND the tank service valve hand wheel, disconnect the fitting from the tank valve and repeat Steps 1 and 2.

Note: Be sure to follow any manufacturers' instructions for the appliance and follow all precautions.
