    How to disconnect a Propane gas bottle?

  • Turn the valve hand wheel off (clockwise rotation.)
  • Except for multi-bottle installations with a changeover valve, turn off the gas tap if it’s fitted to the appliance. Wait until the burner and pilot lights have gone out. For installations with a change-over valve, you only need to turn off the empty gas bottle.
  • Never remove the regulator (or connecting nut) with the bottle valve open.
  • Use a spanner to remove the regulator (or connecting nut – left hand thread).
  • Replace the protective plug into the valve outlet.
  • When you need gas, turn the valve hand wheel.
