    The gas available in NZ is a butane propane mix and it runs fine in my one of these stoves. Only issue Ive had with mine has been the o rings inside the controls. Easy fix

    LoL it's so easy to check your wire cramp are too loose . Pull it. If it's moves or comes off then you tighten my more. If it's cuts into the hose then do it again and don't go too hard till it's cuts in. It's just simple is that.
    Just use "common sense"
    Simply put, just don't go too tight , don't go too loose. You know what I mean ? LoL

    It's not that difficult or dangerous. Just use common sense. If you don't have none then just buy an worm clamp with new hose and install it. But remember with Tilly Titan stove the hose will hit on wall of the case. Bends with sharp turn . Make sure inspect the hose and clamp each time.
    Especially where worm clamp edge touches with hose .... Good luck.

    Knowing and be able to put right amount of force to apply on it's subject and be able to fine control and tune it's body strength over every situations and any objects.
    You don't drive a egg with full force of hand grip do you ? LoL

    Well, Believe it or not, even some grown up adults who looks normal and fine but actually has slightly or severe mental development disabilities such as Asperger's syndromes Autism mental cases has known to poor motor skills.

    For clients who have happen to hire those un-qualified technician who talks a lot but doesn't know a thing and end up burning entire house into ash thinks it's ain't a joke I bet.
    Can you imagine an little baby was charred in a room because the guy made such a basic mistake on how to tightening a little worm clamp and was leaking ?

    @Capt,Cook,

    Lighten up, please. All of us here at CCS, take safety very, VERY seriously. Marc was making light of another comment you made, and most certainly was not talking about safety! Also, please accept the fact that not everyone will do things your way. Plenty of ways to go about certain things about stoves, and we've tried most all of them. Each has his/her favorite ways to do things. In any case, thank you for the information on wire wrapping to seal hoses onto gas stoves. Up until you shared this information, I'd not heard of it before. Take care, and God Bless!

    Doc

    LoL:lol:

    I'm absolutely care less what's the outcome would be by chosing such a simple parts called clamps on highly flammable gas and it's hoses.

    It is absolutely each on thier own .

    Only what I'm saying is this ...

    When the edge of the band of clamps weren't rounded but rather sharp ... and one does not know how to install clamps Then...

    You are asking for serious consequences in a near future.

    that's all about it.

    Everything sums up, I don't know about you but I ain't playing games with fire. That's all !:lol:

    Interesting to see all the safety barriers in place. I suppose that encourages you to do only your job. The catalogue at the end showed every clamp type Ive used and a few others. My favorite hate is the spring loaded clamp often used in car manufacture as a robot can put it on it 2 seconds but once the car is 15 years old they have lost their tension so if you reuse them they often dont work

    You should not trust over 15 years old crusty hoses and clamps all together.
    C'mon now... :lol:

    Cpt Cook, are you a hose clamp salesman? I am having trouble seing where you are going with this conversation, many weird
    and concering statements have been made over two threads now.
    Are you talking about equal circumferential pressure upon the hose body? with out damaging the composition and integrity of the hose?
    If you are so many people have been there before you with coherent and cogent descriptions of how this can be acheived.
    I get my fuel/gas hoses made at my local hose specialist, they all crimped, guaranteed and a small price to pay for piece of mind.

    Naw , I'm a just an regular joe certified general Auto / custom and Stock motorcycle mechanic. Had a chance to worked on 2016 Acura NSX and it's TV commercials and 2020 Honda CBR 1000 rr-r Fireblade SP's production project at very initial stages around the year of 1997 very unfortunately . LMAO :lol:

    You may laugh but I actually said HOSE specialist. We have several big companies that make up hoses and fittings for gas, hydraulic, etc.
    They will fix your cooker/bbq hose or completely refit your heavy machinery with hoses and fittings.
    The charge for one bbq gas hose is minimal.

    @Cpt.Cook Doc's entirely right, my comment about common sense was simply poking fun about how uncommon that is these days. I'll grant that the wire hose clamps you mention seem to be far more secure than what I'd imagined, but I still think recommending the masses build their own hose clamps while you simultaneously recommend the usage of a gas that'll have 4x the pressure the stove manufacturer recommends is irresponsible, at best.

    Everyone has to make their own choices. Most things I'm happy to make my own hoses for, yes generally using standard screw hose clamps. When I needed custom power steering hoses built for my diesel swap, I went to a specialist for such things and had them make up hoses to my specification. I'll be doing that again soon in fact, having them shorten the hoses as I revise the routing. Nothing wrong with that at all.

    Actually , wire clamp method was an older method. However , too many uneducated non skilled installers failed to install them properly and caused many issues back then. Then because of greeds from small product business owners and laziness of field installers it shifted towards to those Worm clamps and others.

    Amateur car racing teams , hobbyists prefers wire clamps on their performance vehicles for a certain reason. Possibly , They are highly aware how much PSI must go through while in harsh environments it must go thru with in competitions.
    But for house holds, camping propane / butane stoves ? Perhaps , that's might be an Over kill safety precautions for most regular joes including myself . LoL:lol: Happy campings and Stay safe .

    Your comments about the hazards of using wire clamps would seem to support my point, wouldn't it?

    You do know that when propane is at 100F ambient temp, it's pressure is nearly 200psi, right? That's well over any pressures happening in a car, outside of the air conditioning system or diesel and gasoline direct injection systems. Even in racing applications.

    200 psi ? Okey .
    Perhaps bump it up to even 400 psi !!!!
    Why not , right ? :D/
    C'mon! bring it on ! :lol:
    Burst that hoses too !!! :lol:
    Well, I'vejust checked highest wether temperatures in U.S. , and AU plus the Kiwi's weathers.
    Okay ! Definitely needs on/off valves. But, nothing to be so dramatic about . LoL :lol: even you shoot propane tank with 45 cal . I won't be surprised . :lol:

    I'd be scared more with those worm clamps or the butterflies or carbon monoxide poisoning ...tbh. [-o<
    But that's all depends on each of their own. :lol:
