GasStop Propane Fittings - Propane Shut-Off Valve Gauges with Hoses - gs59fr Review


Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this gas stop set of emergency propane shutoff gauges and 18 inch long hoses. So this set is going to help protect your family against any major propane leaks or regulator failures. So there are some safety devices that are built into your propane tanks themselves, and into your hoses, that will help to reduce the amount of propane flowing through if there we're a leak, but they don't completely shut it off. This system is going to shut off 100% of the flow. So if there's flames nearby, you're not gonna have to worry about propane leaking through and adding to the danger there, this system is going to completely stop that flow from your tanks.

So this is a really nice system to give you some peace of mind to know that if there we're any problems, it would stop it. But it's also gonna work to show you where your pressure is, how full your tank is, and will help you to discover if there's any leaks and that sort of thing. So a very versatile device here. This is going have the type one ACME fitting. So this is gonna be compatible with your travel trailers and fifth wheels.

There is a different version that is got the POL connection for your class A and class C motor homes, and that is sold separately. This is designed for your travel trailers and fifth wheel, or fifth wheels, only. So it does have a nice brass and reinforced polycarbonate construction, so it is going to be corrosion resistant. Hold up really well for you. You can see on the top there, we do have that rotating gauge that's going to allow you to very easily see if your tank has high pressure, sufficient gas, or if it's getting close to empty.

If you we're to experience a leak, and it we're to shut off your flow, to reset it, you just push down on that four to six times and that's gonna reset it and allow gas to flow through there again. So very simple to use, very simple to get installed. It's got that type one ACME fitting, so it's going to tighten down onto your existing propane tank's gas cylinder. And then you've got that connection there on the other side for your hose to fit onto. And then you can put your hose onto your regulator.

Now this is going to add a little bit of distance for your setup. So you can see from where you would normally attach, it's gonna be just a little over three inches, about three and a quarter of an inch that you're gonna be adding on there. So that's why we have the hose with the 90 degree angle here. So that's going to cut down on the space required, rather than having your hose, that kind of loops around in a lazier angle there. So this is going to be a great option for your tight spaces or small covers that you're trying to put your propane tanks in. This won't snag the cover. It will allow you to still keep everything the way you pretty much the way you have it now, just adding in this device here. So if I take that off, I can give you a few solid measurements here. So you can see we're right about four inches in overall length, our height from the corner of our ACME fitting there down to the top of our gauge, we're right about two and three quarters of an inch tall. And then our width, our widest part is going to be that ACME footing. So we're just shy of two inches. At the widest point, it's about one and seven eighths of an inch wide. And then our hose, like I said, it is an 18 inch long hose. This does have a braided stainless steel construction so it's not going to stiffen or crack like your rubber hoses. So it is going to do a good job making that connection between your shutoff gauge and your regulator there. This does have the type one ACME fitting connection and then a quarter inch male inverted flare. This does have a maximum pressure rating of 250 PSI and a maximum flow capacity for 200,000 BTU. This is going to meet federal requirements. Your hoses and your valves are UL and CSA approved so you can trust they're gonna do a good job for you. And of course, having two sets it's going to allow you to have both your propane tanks hooked up at the same time so you don't have to worry about switching from your valve and hose from one to the other if it we're to go empty. When it's time to switch to the other we do have regulators that will automatically make that switch for you. So when one tank goes empty, you can switch to the other. We also have a kit that has a regulator with it so that you can do all that. But if you already have a regulator you're just looking for the hoses and the shutoff valve this is gonna be a great kit for you. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
