Hi
I am trying to find where i can source and possibly get fitted the fittings shown below. They are Gameco fittings and Mike Sargent has them on his Tvan(pictured).
We are in Adelaide.
Thanks Lyndon

Gday,
You could try "Maxbuilt Trading Co."
I dont know their address but you could try the phone book.

Thanks for that but have already tried them, they were not a lot of help and didn't sell any fitting with dust caps.

I have a suspicion they may be compressed air fittings.

why so, Axel?

Compressed air fittings would be heaps higher spec than low pressure gas. Or even cylinder pressure gas.

Higher spec perhaps ,but 1 carries a flammable gas and the other does not ,, ever wonder why gas fitting use a cack handed thread ?? safety perhaps ,, why can any man and his dog fit air supply but for gas you must be licensed ?

yes, and Maxbilt did fit some for me for my barbeque.

post regulator, I had a bayonet to connect to the fitting on the van and a quick connet to put the hose on the bbq, so I wouldn't have to either keep unscrewing, or have the long (heavy) hose permanently attached.

I had another qc fitting put onto the short hose and regulator so I can also use a standalone gas bottle.

But the qc fittings are not quite the same as those shown, and they do not have a dust cover.

Hi Lyndon
You could try an Hydraulic Hose outlet like "Pirtek" .
Here in Victoria they usually have a good range of fittings, and can usually get what you need if they don't have it.

Hell and tarnation - I thought Maxbuilt knew everything there was to know about gas thingies. As for what is legal and not - gas is one thing I won't be experimenting with - I saw a 9kg cylinder "go up" in the Broken Hill caravan park a few years back - very scary indeed.

Tried that, they just suggested that i try a plumbing shop but sort of figure they wont want to be bothered working out what i need and crimping hoses etc?

Lyndon,
Gameco don't have those fittings in their catalogue. They look like air couplings to me. I agree with above, don't play with gas.

Hi Lyndon,
Bunnings have quick connect gas fittings, similar to the ones in your photo's. I have also seen rubber chair leg protectors used as dust caps ? seems to work O.K

You could try Industrial Fittings Sales at Wingfield. They almost appear to be a hydraulic fitting. If so, probably double shutoff type. There is an LPG bayonet fitting that us hillbillies without natural gas use. Might be a better option as they are designed for propane. Available from Balhannah Mitre 10 and other hillbillie hardware stores.

Or Cambridge's at Littlehampton.

Hi Louie,
The fittings in the pictures you posted are also used on Natural gas, they are the standard fittings fitted on new homes that are now (most of them anyway) having BBQ provision plumbed in during the building process, I had the same fitting/s when I built my last house. (Natural/Town Gas) Convienent for the BBQ, fitting the bayonet was a really tight fit and a bit hard to push up and twist if you have bigish hands (skinned knuckles on the brickwork)

Try Heatlie BBQ's
I used to order a fair few BBQ's etc from them when I was in the Army and they were able to supply hoses etc like the ones in your pics.
They are based in SA as well.
