GasStop Propane Fittings - Emergency Shut-Off Gauges with 12" Hoses - GS39FR Review


Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this gas stop emergency propane shut off gauge and hose set. This set is going to give you two of these emergency propane shut off gauges and two of these 12 inch hoses. So these gauges are going to help protect your family against any major propane leaks or regulator failures. And these are going to help turn off the gas supply immediately if there is a leak or failure detected. So unlike your other propane safety devices that are built into your propane tank itself and into your hoses that cut off the majority of your propane if there's a leak.

They still leave a little bit of propane flowing through which can be extremely dangerous if you've got a fire or something going. So this is going to cut off 100% of the flow so you don't have to worry about any of that propane still leaking out. So it's gonna give you a lot of peace of mind. This is gonna have the type one acme fitting, so it is gonna be compatible with your travel trailers and fifth wheels. We do have a different option for your Class A and Class C motor homes that has a POL connection, but this is going to be the design for your travel trailers and fifth wheels.

Both are gonna be the exact same thing. We've got a nice brass and reinforced polycarbonate construction, so they are gonna be very corrosion resistant and long-lasting. And having two valves and two hoses is going to allow you to have one installed on each of your tanks. And so you don't have to worry about switching it from an empty tank to the full tank. And when it's ready to switch, they'll both be hooked up and ready to go so that you can make that process a little more streamlined.

These do have this rotating pressure gauge at the top. It's gonna be very easy to read quickly to see if your tank has high pressure, if it's got sufficient gas, or if it's getting close to being empty. You can very easily see that. If you we're to experience a leak and you we're to shut it down it's very simple to get it reset. You just push down on that forward to six times and that will reset it and allow the propane to flow through once again.

And that will also allow you to check for leaks if you have any that you're concerned about. Very simple to get installed. You just use that type one acme fitting tighten down onto your existing propane tanks gas cylinder, and then the other end will receive the hose connection there. So basically just hooking up like you already have just putting this in line there. So that is gonna take up a little more room, having that extra component in there. Looking at slightly over three inches I'll call it 3 1/8 of an inch of extra space that you need there, and that's where our 90 degree angle of our hose is gonna come in. So rather than having your hose loop out around this is gonna give you a nice tight angle with that 90 degree bend, so that you can fit this into more confined or cramped spaces. So this hose is a 12 inch long gas gear braided stainless steel pigtail hose and that's going to provide great flow for you. It's got a maximum pressure rating of 250 PSI with a 200,000 BTU maximum flow capacity. We do have that acme connection on the one end. And then you've got a 1/4 inch male inverted flare in on the other side that will connect to your regulator. So like I said, braided stainless steel so it's not going to stiffen or crack like your rubber hoses. It's gonna hold up well for you for a long time to come. This kit is going to meet your federal requirements. Meets the UL and CSA standard, so you can trust it is gonna do a really good job for you. Do wanna give you a few measurements here. So you can see how this is going to tick up space for you. Obviously I already gave you that usable length, that 3 1/4 or 3 1/8, but our overall length we're looking at right about four inches. Our height from the top of our gauge down to the bottom of our acme fitting there, we're looking at approximately 2 3/4 of an inch. And then our width is going to be that acme fitting, that's our widest point, and that is just shy of two inches about 1 7/8 of an inch there. So if you are looking for a little extra peace of mind with your propane system. I know it can be kind of intimidating worrying about leaks and that sort of thing. This is gonna be a great way to give you that peace of mind knowing that your propane is gonna be completely shut off if there we're to be a leak or something along those lines. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
