If you're using our gas patio heaters or barbecues it's important to ensure that the gas bottle is connected tightly to the hose. This spanner fits our gas bottles and will help you to ensure that the nut is as tight as possible.
Please note that our drivers cannot help attach gas bottles to equipment. If you're not happy that you can attach a gas bottle to a piece of equipment safely we recommend utilising the services of a gas safe engineer.
Hire LPG Equipment with confidence from Expo Hire Chiltern

All LPG equipment is frequently cleaned, inspected and tested by a Gas Safe Engineer. We can provide evidence of this on request, once booking is confirmed.
