I'm sorry, but I started dealing with small propane systems when gas grills first hit the market in the early 1970's. Left hand threads that REQUIRED sealants. Tanks that could be filled to zero headspace. Valves that would dump full tank pressure to atmosphere.
Yes, things are much safer now: Flow limiters, OPD, right-hand ACME threads, O-rings (thank The Maker for those!), two-stage regulators, etc.
However, as 'they' say, "Old habits die hard".
In my own defense, I've been fixing engines and using power tools for over 30 years and still have 100% of my fingers and toes
. So, I'll keep being paranoid when it comes to my and my loved one's safety.
