Hypoxic Death & the Exit Bag Ensure the Cylinder is Vertical
It is preferrable for the Nitrogen cylinder to be vertical for use. An effective way to ensure that the cylinder is stable and vertical is to secure it to a solid object. The cylinder could be strapped/ taped to a chair or table leg. See below.

An alternative is to place the cylinder in a market cart (above centre). In order to ensure the cylinder does not flop around inside the trolley, pillows or cushions could be stuffed into the market cart as padding.
Another alternative is to strap the cylinder to a workshop trolley (above left). The uprights of the trolley provide good support. Like the soft canvas market trolley both are move- able which may be convenient in some circumstances.
Attaching the Regulator to the Gas Cylinder
In some countries the cylinder ships with a dust cap. Re- move the dust cap from the cylinder. (See right)
