Dip one of the ends of the tube into a cup of very hot water. When pliable, shake off the water and push the end on to the barbed nipple of the regulator.
Make sure that the end of the tube is pushed all the way on to the barbed nipple so that the end of the plastic fitting is flush with the chrome hexagonal nut.
Test to ensure that the tube is attached securely by pulling on it – it should be virtually impossible to pull it off the barbed nipple. If you have any doubts about the secureness of the hose, or are unable to attach it properly, then remove it. Re- peat the heating of the end and push it on to the barbed nipple again, this time more securely.
An alternative gas connection can be made using 1.5m of clear Boston PVC food grade tubing 6mm (¼ inch). This can be bought from a local plumbing supplies store.
An alternative connnec- tion system involes us- ing a small hose clamp. This can be placed over the tube and tightened to ensure that it cannot be dislodged.
Note – ensure that it is impossible to pull the hose off the barbed nip- ple on the regulator.
