A propane gas grill has quick disconnect fittings that is very simple to install and can be connected to a gas supply line, but some methods of installation require connecting gas lines from the wall before connecting the boiler. This can be a very time consuming task. An easy method to install the fitting is by using either a special fitting for the gas grill, or using a propane hose that has been cut and crimped closed to connect to the gas valve. All that is required is to place the fitting where the valves or hoses will connect.
Some propane gas grill quick disconnect hose is still available with a suitable hose clamp so the fitting can be connected to the grill in a “cup shape”. The clamping clamp can then be secured on the wall or on the grill. A quick disconnect hose is recommended as a measure to avoid the risk of the flexible hose blowing out. This is especially important when you are welding the fitting to the grill as the flexible hose will not protect itself from blowing out during welding or during adjustment to the placement of the fitting. A “cup” fitting can be difficult to install on a propane gas grill, as it is prone to a lot of damage and waste due to dust in the heater.
Once the fitting is secured in the location, a propane hose will then be connected from the cold line. The fittings themselves are very easy to find as they are normally located on the side of the heater or on the frame of the heater as far as the cup fitting. Another method to connect the hose is by connecting the fitting to the cold line using a screw driver and the hose to the opening of the stove. This method is fairly simple to use, but must be done carefully. The fitting will then go on top of the heater and the original fitting should then be secured in place.
