TEFLON ®t tape. With LP gas, piping or tubing size should be
1/2"minimum. Usually, LP gas suppliers determine the size
and materials used in the system.

steel tubing gas connector, designed by CSA to connect
the cooktop to the rigid gas supply line.
A 1/2"male pipe thread is needed for connection to the
female pipe threads of the inlet to the cooktop pressure
Do not kink or damage the flexible metal tubing when
