MB Sturgis Propane - 104052-MBS

  • Adapter Fittings
  • Female 1/4 Inch
  • MB Sturgis
  • Female 1/4 Inch

Use this connector with a 1/4" MPT x POL or Type 1 connector to convert your propane tank for use with a quick-disconnect hose. Or use it with an adapter fitting (401132-MBS) to create a quick-disconnect hookup for a low-pressure appliance.


Features:

  • Connector lets you convert the LP or natural gas tank on your RV for use with a quick-disconnect hose
    • Attach to the 1/4" MPT end of a POL or Type 1 propane connector (sold separately) to create a quick-disconnect port
    • Can also be used to create a quick-disconnect connection for a low-pressure appliance, like a BBQ grill or a brooder heater - requires adapter fitting (401132-MBS - sold separately)
  • Model 250 quick-disconnect port lets you easily hook up and disconnect without any tools
    • Quick-disconnect plug on hose or fitting (sold separately) securely snaps into port
  • Shut-off lever allows you to completely shut off gas supply
    • Ball valve prevents disconnection when lever is in the "on" position to keep gas contained
  • 1/4" Female NPT port attaches to a hose or a connector on your propane system
  • Dust cover protects quick-disconnect port from dirt and moisture when not in use
  • ANSI Z21.41 and CSA certified
  • Made in the USA

QDs

To get an attachment point on your RV for a quick-disconnect hose, just attach the pipe thread end of this connector to the 1/4" MPT end of your POL or Type 1 propane connector. You can also connect this to the 1/4" MPT fitting on a standard propane hose to provide more flexibility for your setup.


The quick-disconnect port on this fitting lets you connect and disconnect hoses without any tools. Simply snap a quick-disconnect hose (sold separately) into the port and it will stay locked in until you release it. To remove the hose, just pull back on the collar of the port. The port also features a gas shut-off lever that allows you to completely cut off the propane supply to that port to keep gas contained when no hose is attached. Be sure to move the lever to the "off" position before disconnecting the hose.


This connector can also be used to create a quick-disconnect connection point on a small, low-pressure appliance, like a grill or a brooder heater. Just thread a quick-disconnect adapter (401132-MBS - sold separately) into the 1/4" female NPT port on your appliance to provide a male quick-disconnect fitting. Thread a standard 1/4" MPT propane hose into the female NPT end of this connector. Then you can easily snap the female quick-disconnect end of the connector on and off of the quick-disconnect adapter so that you don't need to go through the hassle of threading a hose into your appliance every time you want to hook it up.

Video Transcript for MB Sturgis Propane 104052-MBS Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the MB Sturgis propane cylinder connector. This part is used for connecting low pressure, low BTU outdoor cooking appliances using a quick connect. It's going to feature your 1/4 inch low pressure ball valve quick connect fitting on this end. On the other end is 1/4 inch FPT fitting. That stands for female pipe thread. It's going to have this lever right here that actually prevents the unit from disconnecting accidentally.

With that down, you can see that the quick connect collar right there slides freely. Put that up, and that's going to prevent that collar from being able to move back. When it comes to certification, it's ANSI and CSA certified. Maximum flow capacity is 14,000 BTUs per hour for natural gas or 40,000 BTUs per hour for LP gas. That's liquid propane, and that's that 1/2 inch PSIG working pressure.

Pressure rating for the unit is 1/2 edge PSIG. That stands for pounds per square inch gauge. Temperature range is negative 40 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. That's going to do it for today's look at the MB Sturgis propane cylinder connector.

The 1/4" Ball Valve Quick Connect x FPT - 104052 MBS is a high quality valve with a S.S. ball and positive shut off, The valve action is very smooth. The valve handle when open will not let the quick connect sleeve move back and disconnect the LP hose. Many valve of this type do not have a dust cap, a dust cap on this valve in the location that is being used is very important. 328273

Still doing the job without problems. Bar BQ is used at home as well as camping. Reliability is found in keeping the mating equipment by the same manufacturer and making sure the products are of high quality.

  • Quick-Disconnect Propane Fitting with a Male 3/8" Inverted Flare
  • I do have an option for you but the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector part # 104052-MBS is not offered with a male 3/8" inverted flare model 250 quick-disconnect fitting. We do have the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Adapter part # 401132-MBS which has a male 1/4" NPT model 250 quick-disconnect fitting but you would need to use an adapter to convert the male 1/4" NPT to a male 3/8" inverted flare which we do not have.

For your gas line, you will want the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector - 1/4" FPT # 104052-MBS but you would need to find the adapter to 1/4 inch at a local home improvement store.

It sounds like you also want the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Adapter Fitting - Male Model 250 x 1/4" MPT # 401132-MBS to attach to your grill.

  • How to Adapt From 1/4 inch Inverted Flare to Quick Disconnect Propane
  • Here's what you need to do. On the 4 port adapter there is a very small plug with the tether on it going into a larger adapter with the other end of the tether on it that goes directly into the barrel of the 4 port adapter. Remove the small plug, then use a 5/8" socket to remove the 1/4" NPT fitting that is directly into the barrel of the 4 port adapter. Then all you need to do is use a standard 1/4" NPT nipple of whatever length you require to go directly into the 4 port adapter...

  • Tips for Getting Male and Female RV Propane Quick Disconnect Fittings to Connect
  • The MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector # 104052-MBS and the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Hose for Small Appliance # 100476-120-MBS that you referenced are designed to be able to connect to each other. They both have matching quick disconnect fittings. These fittings can be somewhat stubborn though. Especially if the pressure in the lines is high. Make sure you are pulling all the way back on the sleeve of the female side and that the male side is going all the way in and...

  • Comparing Gas Volume and BTU Specs for Propane Quick Disconnects 104052-MBS and CAM59853
  • The Camco Quick-Connect Kit for Low Pressure Propane Systems # CAM59853 has the same fittings and dimensions as the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect # 104052-MBS so it will pass an identical volume of propane (40-standard cubic feet per hour) and deliver the same 40,000 BTUs.

  • What is the Flow Capacity of the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector # 104052-MBS
  • The MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector # 104052-MBS is meant to be used for LP (low pressure) or natural gas tanks. It has a max flow capacity of 40,000 Btu per hour for LP gas and 14,000 Btu per hour for natural gas. Without a regulator your 25 gallon propane bottle should be putting out more than that so you will need a regulator before this connection.
