What's up everybody. It's AJ, with Today we are checking out this locking bracket and padlock kit for your twin propane setup on your rig. You can see that I've installed it already and it's going to keep people from messing with the wing nut on top. I can't get it loosened, that way I can't take this off and that way I can't mess with these propane tanks. Let's check it out.

Taking a closer look at it, it's a zinc plated steel for both of these brackets, so you know they're going to hold up when you leave them outside. And I know this side's not all the way down there, but you don't have to worry about that.You really only need the padlock one side, so yeah, you can kind of pull that side out, but it's not coming out of there because this side has got the padlock through it, keeping it from popping out. After thinking about it, let's put it to the test actually. I'm just curious to see how it does work. What happens if I do pry this up and get this one in that looks like I can pop it out Will I be able to undo thisOkay, so I've popped that out, but the side with the padlock is still holding that bracket in there.

I can't maneuver enough to turn the wing nut still. So, the one padlock system sure does work. This is the other propane setup we tried earlier to get it to work with. And I think it will work, but I just want to point out some things that might get in your way. When we removed our handle nut here, the bracket didn't sit on here correctly with the other bracket because of this bracket right here.

It came in contact and you couldn't get one side fully in or a padlock and you wouldn't be able to tie it down. What we did, was we remove these screws and attach the regulator to the new brackets, the lock, but then this was in the way, so I go to tighten this back down and it kept coming in contact like that. And you couldn't get it fully tightened down.We thought maybe with a couple of washers in there, that would take some of the space out, but really, I think you'd just have to get another bracket for your regulator, which we have here on, so I would look into that if your setup is similar to this and your wing nut is as widespread as this. Now we saw how well that actually works. Let's see how to get it installed.

First off, every propane set up is not going to be the same. Yours might be slightly different. I would be mindful of where your regulator is. It does have points here to remount your regulator if it is in the way. There was another one we tried it on, the regulator was in the way, so I just unscrewed it. You can see the screws in the bracket here. You can attach it there and it'll be out of the way, but this one's actually down underneath, I don't think it's going to be a problem. Let's just take the wing nut off and give it a shot.Put our bracket on. This one doesn't have a whole lot for it to screw down on, but that's okay. That means it will be nice and tight, you won't hear it rattling around. Give it a couple turns until the bracket stops moving. It's pretty sturdy already right there. Now we just put our clamp through it and then we'll put our padlock through. Now, you can't take that bracket off and you can't loosen the wing nut at all, so nobody can mess with your propane tanks. It really is that easy to install. It's not going to take you that long and again, everybody's propane setup's a little bit different, but there's enough options here to kind of modify your setup and get it to work. I like that it's got it nice and tight. It's locked, but I mean, nothing's perfect. I think it just keeps people honest. They see the lock, they're going to go to the next one that doesn't have a lock and they're not even going to mess with yours.You can get these and with a silver padlock or the black padlock like we have here, or there's also one that just, you get the brackets. If you have another padlock you want to use, you don't need an extra one, you can buy just the bracket and use that set up. I will say, though, if you get one of the ones with the padlock, it is keyed alike to other Bauer's products. If you have some door lashes along the basement doors of your rig, that could be keyed alike to the padlock that just saves on having 25 keys on your key ring, when you can just have these two and it unlocks everything on your rig. That pretty much does it for this lock bracket for your propane tanks. Thanks for hanging out. I hope this helped..

Am using this for my dual 30lb tank setup on my travel trailer. Very easy to put on and off and one more deterrent to slow down thieves!


I believe prevention will deter most thieves, a reasonable price to protect my LP supply when out camping. Sturdy construction, will deter most attempts.

Where my travel trailer was stored there was a number of thefts of various equipment mainly batteries and propane tanks. Most trailer theft was for items outside of the trailer itself. My trailer tanks were not taken, the thiefs did open the cover but the lock deterred them.

@TrailerD We're glad to hear that! Deterrence is the number one function of locks...


The locking bracket was easily defeated by one of my friends.


This is in NO WAY any type of standard locking mechanism for camp trailer propane tanks. This isn't even close to a standard, and I've had to order something else . This may have been misleading and was never marketed to lock two propane tanks -??? Is this just a lock for a single tank? It wasn't clear when I ordered - so I'll accept I made the mistake. Waste of money - it is garbage to me now.

This locking mechanism locks the wing nut on your double propane setup. I have attached a video for your reference. If you are looking for a valve lock out we do not carry those at this time.


It did not fit my propane setup and after watching the video on [online], my set up was the one that did not work. So, I would have to pay for another bracket that hold my regulator. Not a what I had in mind. I called up and waited 20+ minutes for someone to pick up, and they said to take it to the post office and send it back as it would be cheaper as they would charge for return shipping. I went to the post office and it cost $11 so guess what this was a waist of my money and time.

I recommend watching the video in the link below to determine if the lock will be compatible with your propane set up.

Great customer
