    Wondering what everyone did to mount their propane tanks. I’m looking into ideas for keeping my 5lb in the bed and not rolling around

    You are not supposed to store BBQ tanks on their side. And they are 25lbs. in Canada.

    They're empty at the moment, but I will transfer them vertical after refill. :thumbsup:

    All the things!
    Old milk crates work great. The tank fits just perfectly.

    I've previously gone with the milk crate "solution" as a temporary measure. A fixed bracket which securely holds my 11 lb bottle will be WAY safer. But where to mount it?
    I have temporized for the moment, with 1lb green bottles.
    edited for crazy spelling :)

    I had not heard this before, so:

    Position of LP Gas Cylinders In Storage

    If cylinders are stored improperly, such as on their side with the relief valve in contact with propane liquid and the safety relief valve opens for any reason, liquid will be escaping instead of vapor posing a much greater danger.

    Tagged for ideas, looking for ways to store mine and mount to bed rail. Crazy most mounts cost at least twice that of the actual bottle.

    that’s exactly why i opted to build mines. Cost was just sourcing hardware. I had the aluminum.
