These cylinders have a 21mm valve and should only be used with 21mm regulators. To connect, just turn the orange safety cap so that the arrow is pointing to the gap in the shroud, then remove the orange cap by pulling the lanyard out, and then upwards. Avoid using tools for this, and just leave the cap hanging.
- Check that the black sealing washer is fitted inside the cylinder valve.
- Make sure the regulator switch is in the disconnect position (3 o’clock position).
- Fit the 21mm regulator as the manufacturer’s instructions suggest. When you need to use gas, turn the switch anticlockwise to the ‘on’ position.
IMPORTANT: If the regulator on/off switch gets stuck when turning the supply on, it means the regulator has not been connected correctly. If this happens, disconnect it and follow the instructions to reconnect it.

- Turn the regulator switch clockwise to the off position. If the flame doesn’t go out, leave the appliance alight and contact the Calor gas emergency service number on 03457 444 999.
- Replace the orange safety cap onto the empty bottle valve.
