Safely Set Up Your Grill
Make sure your grill is safely positioned far away from any flammable material and that the grill cover is completely open.
Have the gas turned to the off position before hooking the propane tank to the grill. Also remember to remove the used tank from the grill if you have not done so already. You are now ready to hook up your tank!
Turn Off Service Valve
Make sure the tank service valve hand wheel is turned OFF (to the right) completely before connecting to your grill or other appliance.
Remove the blue plastic cap that is covering the nozzle. The plastic cap will be perforated, which makes it relatively easy to remove.
Connecting The Gas Line
After removing our blue plastic cap covering the nozzle, connect the grill's gas line to the nozzle. The propane tank should fit snugly into the gas line.
Turn the coupler to the right. Make sure the fitting is fully screwed in, but not so tight that you won't be able to unscrew it when the time comes to put in a new tank.
Turn valve to open
Turn the gas valve on the propane tank to the open position. Your valve should be in the shape of a triangle and etched with the words "OPD," or overfill protection device. Make sure the gas line is in and secure.
Once this is complete, you are ready to turn on your grill or other propane powered device and get to cooking!
