Video Transcript for TorkLift Propane Tank Fortress GasLock Kit Review

Randy: Hey guys. Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at a new product from Torque Lift. It's the Fortress gas lot. This is going to give us an excellent solution that we really haven't had in the past. This allows us to lock two propane tanks down to the front of our camper or RV, and prevent them from being removed.

Now, not only does it secure our tanks as you can see, but also our regulator, and also our hoses. So we're not going to have to worry about all of those pieces disappearing causing us a very expensive replacement. Whether you've got the half inch, or three eighths inch threaded rod, we're going to have a solution for you. It's going to have a heavy powder coat finish on it, and it is lightweight. It's made out of military grade aluminum.

So we're not going to really have to worry about any corrosion, or any issues like that. Also, going to have our lock right here. Nice heavy duty lock. Pull that off and see we've got our cap open there.That'll allow us to slide our key in there, lock and unlock that, and then back this off if we want to get our tanks off to take them and have them filled or whatever we might need to do. Now to install our Fortress lock, we'll need to remove the old style wing nut.

Just going to loosen that up and set it aside. Then we can bring our Fortress lock right down and over. I'm going to position this tab rearward. Since our regulator is right here, I want to have enough room for my lock. Now we'll take that stainless washer.

We want to place that down on. Then we can get that threaded down and on. Now, we're going attention this just like we would our normal keeper here. We just need to ensure either this tab or this tab lines up with the tab on that lower section, so we can get our lock through.So right there looks good. Then we can place the lock through. We have the option of placing it either way we want. I do recommend though that we put this rubber spacer on the top side. We can put our lock on this way. But as that goes down the road, that'll kind of keep it from rattling. We won't hear that metal noise as it bounces up and down. We just put our cap on. But at that point, everything's going to be nice and secure and we won't have to worry about anybody getting away with our tanks. That's going to complete our look at the Fortress gas lock from Torque Lift.

A good product took some work to install, had to figure out where to put the regulator bracket.


Comments
Good, no issues

by:

Very easy to use and perfect for what it is intended for. Came earlier than expected and good quality. Just make sure you measure correctly not like me, and order the correct size. etrailer customer service was great on helping me return the wrong size and ordering the right one.

Thanks


Comments
It works just as intended. I needed it so that is why I bought it, but after looking a little closer at my setup I could have secured it with some mods of my own and saved the cost. But overall the product is quality and works.

Easy to install and works great.


Comments
Working perfectly

by:

Might be good on some trailers but it did not work on my Grand Design. See photo. Could not get it pushed down far enough to put padlock on before the end potecting the nuts jamed against the upright threaded stock.




by:

Works well overall but fit was a little challenging given length of rod on my trailer.




by:

Timely delivery. Easy installation.
One
note: Raising the regulator caused interference with slam latch. Had to bend bracket as shown in photo. Otherwise good product.




by:

Knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient




by:

Very happy with this lock for my propane tanks. Very durable and attractive




by:

I like knowing my tanks are locked-down. Access to the top of my tanks is not adequate for locking to be easy, but I can manage with this setup.




by:

The lock was easy to install and secures the dual propane tanks nicely.




by:

We had fallen victim to thieves that thought they needed our propane tanks more than we did. So after replacing our tanks, I found this lock setup. This will not stop every thief because it can be cut if they had the time, but it curbs the quick grab. I also like that this lock adds another layer of protection to keep the hold down from loosening up during travel. After having this lock for 1 year already, i still like it and would buy it again.




by:

Put this on my trailer about a year ago and still have both Propane bottles. Easy install and seems to be a quality product. Thanks etrailer.




by:

If it's not clear from the picture, the lock itself in this unit is merely something that keeps the replacement fly-nut assembly from turning freely.

Fly-nut is nice gauge stiff steel with a very nice powder coating. You'd need to really wail on it with a heavy hammer (and at a difficult angle) to bend it enough to defeat the lock. One year in and no rust on either the lock or the fly-nut, great piece of mind and looks sharp with the powder coating too




by:

Exactly what I needed! I needed something to keep my propane tanks "mine" while in storage and etrailer.com was the first place I looked - reasonably priced and quick delivery.


Comments
Totally satisfied - still have my tanks :
HRWhite - 07/23/2015
If the rod is threaded on both ends, take the bar apart and two nuts underneath the tank holder bar so no one can unscrew from the bottom. I found that you can get a pair of pliers on the rod and remove it from the bottm as the hole thing will come right out.

I just got the torklift fortress gaslock 1/2" today. Delivery was on time and I love the lock, it works great to secure our propane tanks. I would highly recommend the locks and shopping with etrailer. Thank you.




by:

This lock is incredibly easy to install. It keeps the tanks secure, and, of course, locks them tightly in place. The only thing that surprised me is that this appears to be a different design than pictured. The handles are bent upward as in the Airstream lock picture....even though the packaging says it's the TLA7702, not the Airstream variety. Regardless, this thing looks, feels, and works great!


Comments
Still going strong! Im very glad I made this purchase...no more stolen tanks!
Adam P - 08/14/2016

Excellent product. After someone cut my bike cable type security and took a full 30 pound propane tank off of my trailer in 2014 I had to find a better way to secure my tanks. After some searching this propane tank lock was the answer. eTrailer has the best price I could find on it. Purchasing was easy and shipping was fast. Thanks eTrailer.




by:

The product works like it's supposed to. I feel better knowing that I have a good lock on my propane tanks for when I'm camping or just keeping it stored at home! I ordered the wrong size, had to send it back and ordered the correct size. I spoke with Rebecca and she was great! She took my order over the phone and sent me the UPS label right away! The customer service is really great! I've received my refund for the first order. I would definitely do business with this company again!!!


Comments
I am still as pleased with this product as I was a year ago.
JEC - 04/07/2016


by:

Simple installation, works great, keeps my tanks and batteries secure. I recommend this item to anyone needing to secure their propane tanks. I made a bracket to secure my batteries and incorporated this lock for security.




by:

I took a chance when I ordered it, because I did not even have my new camping trailer yet. In fact it was 500 miles away. Fortunately I ordered the correct size. It fit beautifully (once I read the instructions). I live in an area where they will steal your teeth while you are talking to them. There aren't even enough police to come take a report. Nothing will stop these buggers. The judges let them go without consequences before the ink is even dry on the paperwork.




by:

Received the Torklift fortress kit today. I installed kit in 5 minutes!! Taking road trip this 4th of July. My propane tanks won't go amiss this trip!!!! Thanks!! Terry




by:

Excellent. I previously restored a 72 airstream and found this product to secure the tanks now I'm re doing another camper and want the same secure tanks. I don't trust my new tanks to be there when I return from the woods. Now I can go off and hunt and have gas when I return. I will always reccomend this product. Simple and effective. Thanks




by:

Had this lock for about a year. It has held up great to weather. Defiantly more secure then any other lock I have found to lock propane tanks. Sure if someone wants them they could get them but they will work for them and others would be easier to take. Very pleased with this lock and would recommend it.




by:

Just installed the lock and the install was ver y easy. Now we will see if I can forget about chains and locks to secure the propane tanks. I believe you have a super product.
Thanks, JB




by:

Communication was excellent (advised of delay and new delivery date etc.), product as described, best darn packing job I have ever seen! Arrived in excellent condition despite the fact that it was several heavy items. Continued satisfaction from etrailer with multiple purchases thus far.

  • Propane Tank Lock Availability for a Trailer/RV
    The TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit # TLA7702 that you referenced is deigned to fit propane tanks with 1/2 inch threaded rods. If instead you have a 3/8 inch rod you would want the part # TLA7701. You would need to measure the rod of your current setup to determine which you would need.

  • How to Choose Correct TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit for Propane Tanks
    TorkLift offers the 1/2-inch version of their Fortress GasLock Kit for Propane Tanks, part # TLA7702, and also a 3/8-inch version, part # TLA7701. To determine which is correct for your trailer just measure the diameter of your vertical propane support rod. In the linked video at the 0:50 mark you can see this rod. If your rod measures 1/2-inch in diameter use kit # TLA7702; if it measures 3/8-inches in diameter, then use kit # TLA7701.

  • Will TorkLift Fortress GasLock Work With A Propane Tank Cover?
    You will not have any problem using the TorkLift Fortress GasLock with any propane tank cover. In the attached picture you can see that the lock is not any taller than the metal protective flange (ears) on the top of the propane bottles. For Airstreams with 3/8" threaded rod use part # TLA7771 For Airstreams with 1/2" threaded rod use part # TLA7770 For standard 3/8" threaded rod use part # TLA7701 For standard 1/2" threaded rod use part # TLA7702

  • How to Determine Which TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit for Propane Tanks Will Fit
    The threaded rod sizes for the TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit for Propane Tanks # TLA7701 and # TLA7702 simply refer to the diameter of the vertical propane support rod on your existing setup. You can take a quick measurement on your propane rod and if it has a diameter of 3/8 inches, you will use # TLA7701. If it has a 1/2 inch diameter you will instead use # TLA7702. For precise measurements, using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 can be very helpful. These are also nice to have around...

  • Locks for RV Propane Tanks
    The Camco Propane Tank Cover # CAM40539 does not include locks. However, you can add a lock to your propane tanks. Use # TLA7702 if you have a 1/2 inch thread or # TLA7701 for a 3/8 inch thread.
