For the record


This is how you solve that:

The above adapter has a 3/8" flare OD and internal 1/4" opening for the male end which is threaded into the (3/8") regulator. The other end of this adapter is 1/4" female that you thread the STANDARD easy to get 1/4" propane pigtails. The print details do not mention a 3/8 OD male side. I reckon I'm just dumb and out of the loop?:

Above are very nice quality.


Use gas pipe sealant as such:

MB Sturgis is a USA vendor that supplies and makes all of these propane hoses to whatever length you want. I shopped the whole country and these people are my go to with great pricing. You have an issue, they will resolve it. They have the rubber type or stainless braded hoses. They also make their own 2 stage regulator and have a video as to how they test that. Again, everything they make is USA. Read there about for the company history.

I just replaced my regulator with a Sturgis high capacity unit, with Sturgis braided pigtails. Note that I turned the tanks 180 degrees to that the ACME connection is facing forward to allow for longer pigtails to attach without an excessive bend. One tank does have a tee so that I can connect the Blackstone grill or Fire-in-a-can appliance.

Propane Pigtails Source

Sturgis made in USA parts for propane systems are the best way to go. Too many look alike cheap parts have been reported as a source of leaks too often.

Personally, Iíd rather not have a front row seat in the middle of a rapidly expanding propane fireball...in any case, flexible parts in propane systems need to be inspected regularly and replaced when they get hardened, exhibit cracking, or age out. I try to replace my flexible pressure hoses about every 8 years or so. I also use corrugated split tubing as a cover to protect those parts from UV light. I do the same for exposed electrical wires as well.

Steamy1. Wrapping around the tank collar is an interesting solution. What is the hose length? What is the hose part #?. My new 40# aluminum tanks with guages, the built in OPD would not stop filling. The propane dealer said the OPD float was interfering with the guage float and rotated my valve so it is pointing 180 thru the handle slot. I haven't put the tank back on the trailer yet but your solution might work for me also. Thanks
