How to Remove Legs from Propane Dual Burner Cook Stoves

How to Remove Legs from Propane Dual Burner Cook Stoves
It's nice to have legs on your dual burner propane cook stove when you're barbecuing outside at your own house, but if you need to transport your stove you'll likely need to remove the legs. Since the vast majority of these stoves were made for campers, it's not time consuming. As with any job involving combustible gas, use caution. While it's unlikely that removing the legs would damage your propane tank, you should remove it beforehand just in case.

Instructions

Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • 3/4-inch wrench
Step 1
Turn the valve on your dual burner cook stove's propane tank counterclockwise to the "Close" position. Remove the flare fitting that connects the gas supply hose from your propane tank to your cook stove with a 3/4-inch wrench. Coil the gas hose on top of the propane tank and set the propane tank aside.
Step 2
Gently set your dual burner cook stove on its back.
Step 3
Loosen the thumbscrew on the first leg until the leg is loose enough to slide out. Once the leg slides out, tighten the thumbscrew back in so that it will not fall out. Repeat for each of the remaining legs until all four legs are removed.
Step 4
Set your dual burner cook stove right side up and use a 3/4-inch wrench to reconnect the flare fitting that connects the gas supply hose from your propane tank to your cook stove.
Step 5
Turn the gas supply valve on your dual burner cook stove's propane tank clockwise to the "Open" position when you are ready to use the stove.

Tips & Warnings

 
If you are going to be in one campsite for a long period of time, you can bring the legs for your dual burner propane cook stove along and reassemble the stove when you arrive at the campsite, and remove the legs again for the journey home.
 
Always close your propane tank valve when your cook stove is not in use.
