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.

Looks like this propane lock will do the job. I am a little worried that the lock will not be strong enough but I figure that most wrong doers will not want to put forth the effort to try and remove the lock. I am very happy with this purchase. 208388

I was told this item was for airstream prior to ordering. I called and was advise this would fit. I recieved this and it was too small. The person who andweted the phone never said there were 2 sizes for airstream. So Im sending it back and am being charged shipping to do so when it was clearly an error wth info provided. Heading to trusty [another site] to complete my purchase 465726


Comments

Thank you for your review. This Torklift Gaslock kit part #TLA7701 is not made for airstream trailers. The lock kits designed for Airstream trailer are part #TLA7771 that attaches to a 3/8 threaded rod on the propane tank setup and part #TLA7770 that attaches to a 1/2 threaded rod on the propane tank setup.

Good quality and materials used. Built well. Watch out for the packaging - it's a bit misleading as the cover lists the part number for both the 3/8" and 1/2" inch versions. 616650

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!!! 184089

Review from a similar TorkLift Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


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! 219549

Still going strong! Im very glad I made this purchase...no more stolen tanks!

Not so much a product review but a review of overall services. In my opinion, it took way too long for these items to be shipped and for me to receive them. Other than that specific issue, I've had no other issues with eTrailer. 361639

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.

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. 523015

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. 501511

Review from a similar TorkLift Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


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. 621928

Review from a similar TorkLift Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


a solid solution for locking your propane tanks. Be sure to get the correct one, as there are different size threads on the rod, and different mounting options. The eTrailer website doesn't do a good job on explaining this. I ordered the Airstream model, only to find out that there are two thread sizes that Airstream uses, and this site does not explain this very well. I had to contact TorkLift to get the right size (and it wasn't the 3/8" version that comes up when you click on the Airstream option). I give the lock 5 stars, and 3 stars to eTrailer for not understanding this product. 598425

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. 371467

Fit perfectly bit lock has to be installed lock side down for Airstream tank cover to close. 324099


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.

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. 316726

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 270063

Ask the Experts about this TorkLift RV Locks


  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Torklift Fortress GasLock Kit Comparing Airstream Kit To Regular
  • The TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit for Propane Tanks with 3/8" Threaded Rod # TLA7701 is different from the TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit for Propane Tanks with 3/8" Threaded Rod on Airstream Trailers # TLA7771 in that the bracket that sits on the bar is different for the Airstream. The Torklift Fortress for Airstream trailers only has an L-shape instead of a bridge shape. Other than that bracket the systems are almost identical and function the same.

  • 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.

  • 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.
    view full answer...

  • Will the TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit for Propane Tanks # TLA7701 Work with a Single Tank
  • The TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit for Propane Tanks, # TLA7701, is a specially designed lock that attaches to a 3/8" threaded rod of a dual propane tank setup. I have attached a picture to illustrate the lock location. Basically you would need to install a propane bottle rack on your trailer to provide the threaded rod required to use this style of lock. I spoke with my contact at Torklift and the lock will still secure the tank even if only one is in the rack.
