  • Gas bottle mounts for roof cage

    Hi,
    Looking through forums and there is no clear guidleines or law about mounting a gas bottle on its side for transport on a roof cage.
    about to travel to Central Aust and looking for clever and more importantly a safe way of securing a 9kg bottle to a standard roof cage (not platform)

    Brands like OzTrail have a holde that stores it upright which i could securely mount to the cage, however mounting the bottle on its side would keep it safe out of the elements and just that bit better for wind resisttance.

    thoughts/feedback welcome and thanks for reading

        LPG gas bottles are designed and required to be transported, stored and used upright. So your solution is to transport it upright and with a POL valve plug in place.
        One reason is that a cylinder that is full or partially filled will have gas in liquid form present, the type of gas bottle used for cooking etc. is designed to draw off gas not liquid and laying a bottle on it's side will allow liquid around the take off point.
        Yes i know it will be stood upright before use but safety should always take precedence.

        try googling transporting gas bottles, I'm sure you will find websites advising how to transport gas bottles correctly and legally like the link below.
