Links?I sourced all quick connect fittings for my hose going from the 5lb tank to my stove or bbq. It’s quick and lessens wear and tear on threads.
I love this idea but that means I'd have to change one end of my 6' hose that is meant to mimic a 1# bottle into a QD (quick disconnect). Which would mean that I lose the "universality" of this hose for connecting to other camp stoves but may not be a huge deal once I make the switch to this concept.I sourced all quick connect fittings for my hose going from the 5lb tank to my stove or bbq.

Getting it made with a longer hose should not be a problem. Any hose shop should be able to cut the ferrules off the fitting, and the regulator, and install new ferrules with the hose length of your choice. I just had my Partner Steel stove hose lengthened. Different deal, but same idea.I’ve been using the camp chef one you pictured with good results. I wish it was about 12” longer for better bottle placement, but it works nicely.
Make your own, unless you are a gas fitter is it worth the risk, just buy what you need.
My buddy lost 3 x 40lbs tanks of propane from around the crimp until he stopped buying offshore hoses from RV dealers.I would be more worried about the tank leaking after removing the hose than anything else leaking in storage.
I recall that pic and it happened because one of the OxyAcet bottle wasn't fully closed AND there wasn't a protective valve cap on that bottle. This was a Darwin move, glad he didn't get killed.
Geez, I didn't realize who made this post. My apologies Ash. Go to Action Hose on Stanford, off Candelaria. They should be able to set you up.Just curious if it's easy to make a hose that replaces the typical 1lb hose adapter? Is the threaded portion (circled in red) a standard thread of some sort?
I see that Camp Chef has something like this.
