What Bracket Do I Use?

I'm at the point where I'm ready to order parts for the LP system. Need to get the copper items ordered still. I have the full securing arrangement for the tanks, pigtails, and everything to the regulator. What I can't find is an answer on what part to use between the flex line downstream of the regulator that transitions to copper or hard line near the base of the tanks. It seems like a bracket should be there to keep the line from flexing. Is the one in the photo what I need? Do others use nothing at all? It's labeled as a regulator bracket, but I have one of those already. Thanks!

I would mount the bracket so that the brass fitting from trailer goes thru the bracket opening. The flex line mounts on the other side. No need for 'mounting' or snugging to the bracket as the bracket will keep the fitting aligned. If you want a 'thru-bulkhead' fitting can be used and this is how you can 'secure' to the bracket.

Here is one expensive type.. http://www.mcmaster.com/#tank-pipe-fittings/=yyu59a


but there are other options...

What I'm trying to determine is, if the bracket in the picture is what's used when transitioning from brass line to the flex line. I've never seen any pictures of how other trailers are set up, and can't find anything on the Internet to show a standard setup. It's labeled as a regulator bracket, but based on what you have posted perhaps I'm on the right path using this to hold the brass connection firmly in place, then running a flex line up to the regulator?
