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.

I ordered 4 Mighty Cords and a TorkLift gas bottle lock for my Airstream. The cords were nice and recommended by the AS forum. I rodered the wrong TorkLift for my AS. I needed the 1/2" lock assembly but ordered the 3/8" by mistake. etrailer responded and sent me the correct TorkLift and a return merchandise mailing label! Thanks! Nice people to do business with. Here is the TorkLift installed on my AS.

Works great! Ive owned it one year now and no corrosion issues. As long as somebody can't undo the gas rod from the bottom, then the lock is secure against theft. It would be very cool if this product had a model that used a 4-digit combo lock instead of a key (I often misplace my key, but started keeping the key inside the Airstream


Comments
Its been a year and the lock has performed just fine. It is kept out of the elements under the propane tank cover, but I do live by the beach and there is no evidence of corrosion from the salty air. Good product!

Installed the lock today. It works as advertised and is pretty much the only LP tank lock that works well on an Airstream trailer. The instructions show installation with the barrel of the keylock in an upwards position, however, my Airstream trailer has large 40 gallon tanks and the cover brace is raised rather than dipped. The keylock barrel must be installed in the downward position or it won't fit beneath the plastic top cover. This makes is slightly awkward to insert the key, but it also makes it nearly impossible to drill the locking mechanism out. The lock is easy to install and easy to remove when needed.

Fit perfectly bit lock has to be installed lock side down for Airstream tank cover to close.


Comments
It works great. Still the only problem is that the lock has to be turned upside down for the lid to close on propane tanks. Not a big problem but should be corrected by new generation of the lock.

Review from a similar Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


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.

I had been looking for a quality propane tank locks fan this one is exactly as described. The lock is robust and allows you to lock two propane tanks and a regulator with the lock and built in key.

Review from a similar Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


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

Review from a similar Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


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.

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.

Review from a similar Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


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.

It seems to be the solution to keep my propane tanks on my RV. One of my tanks disappeared one night a few weeks ago so I needed something to protect them. 40 lb tank full, they left the empt one.

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.

Review from a similar Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


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!!!

I am still as pleased with this product as I was a year ago.

    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

  • Propane Tank Lock for Airstream Flying Cloud Travel Trailer
    If your Airstream has the dual tank setup with the hold down that uses 3/8 inch threaded rod, you'll want to use the # TLA7771 lock. For a 1/2 inch threaded rod, use # TLA7770. I've provided a diagram showing how the lock goes together and fits on the rod of the tank hold down. If the hold down is aftermarket, and wasn't manufactured by Airstream, use part # BA62VR. I've linked to demonstration videos for the products mentioned above.
