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

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.

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. 736745

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

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

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!!! 184089

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

Review from a similar Fortress GasLock in RV Locks


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 734994

Review from a similar 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 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

Ask the Experts about this TorkLift RV Locks

  • 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...

  • Could Upper Section of Torklift Fortress GasLock Kit part # TLA7701 be Removed with Pliers
    With the pin lock ran through both pieces of the Torklift Fortress GasLock Kit part # TLA7701 you would not be able to turn the upper section to remove it from the lower piece and remove it. The fitting on top of the upper piece can not turn independently of the section either. For more info on how this installs/works check out the review video link I attached as well which covers that.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • What is Diameter of Pin Lock Hole on TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit # TLA7701
    I checked with Torklift and the hole of the TorkLift Fortress GasLock Kit # TLA7701 where the included lock fits through is exactly 5/16 inch. So a shackle with a 5/16 inch diameter would fit snugly most likely.

  • 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 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.
