    If the valve is tight, and a cap over the valve you shouldn't have an issue:notsure:

    As for any cylinder you haul! NEVER should you not have a cap on a cylinder unless its in use with a certified chain/strap holding it to something solid.

    Glad he is ok but hopefully a lesson for those out there that don't check valves and caps when hauling.

    Common sense, never transport acetylene inside of your vehicle. It is HIGHLY flammable.
