Before you connect, you should always check:

  • As patio gas bottles have a 27mm valve, you should check that you have a 27mm clip-on regulator
  • There isn’t a protective cap on your patio gas bottle, so make sure the top of the valve is nice and clean
  • Please note that you should never disconnect the regulator with the switch in the on position
  • Before using a patio gas bottle, please take a look at Calor's PDF technical publication on how to use patio gas safety.

Let’s get connected!

  1. The regulator switch should start in the off position
  2. Place the regulator down onto the gas bottle valve and press downwards firmly until you hear the audible ‘click’. This indicates that the regulator is in place
  3. To turn the gas on, turn the gas on/off switch a quarter turn anticlockwise to the 'on' position
  4. Always turn the switch clockwise to the 'off' position after use

Don’t forget to disconnect:

  1. Turn the regulator switch clockwise to the ‘off’ position
  2. If the flame doesn’t go out, leave the appliance alight and contact the Calor gas emergency service number on 03457 444 999
  3. Press the 'push' button on the lower part and lift the regulator from the valve
  4. If you’re using a butane gas bottle, place the safety cap onto the empty bottle valve
