Every camping gas bottle requires a regulator and in this video Ian from GO Outdoors shows you how to fit a gas regulator to a camping gas bottle.

Ian will first talks about the gas hose, which attaches the gas bottle to the gas stove. With the gas stove, you will use a couple of jubilee clips to slot over the end and then you twist the hose on, until its nice and tight. If its no working, try to soften the hose and it will go on a bit easier.

Once you have the hose all the way down, simply slide the jubilee clip over the top and tighten it up with a screw driver.

Ian then attaches the regulator onto the Calor Gas 4.5 butane which requires a 4.5 regulator to bolt on until its tight.

With the 7kg Butane it just clicks on the regulator. But make sure you have a safety cap on, which you just remove and make sure that the switch is horizontal, and push it down until there's a click.

The next one Ian demos is the 3.9 Propane. It is similar to the 4.5 as it just bolts on.

Finally Ian moves onto our European camping cylinder - which is the camping gas 9.07. Now this is really easy is to fit. It has a carry handle, that screws off, which you need to keep hold of - and then simply make sure its closed. When you put it on it will engage a bull socket and release some gas, but don't worry about that, just give it a spin until its nice and tight.
