About The Problem:
We collected primary market data about this problem through a survey. Here are some of the results…
The majority of people feel it's safer to close the valve on the propane tank after each use. The majority also believe there is a possibility for propane loss if the valve is left open. Over 34% of people surveyed are certain they have experienced propane loss due to the valve being left open.
When asked why they don’t turn the valve off at the tank (when they don’t) the #1 answer was “I just forget.” (42%). Followed closely by, “It’s too inconvenient/hard to reach.” Sound familiar?
69% of people surveyed said they would feel safer if they didn't have to stoop down and reach under, or around, their grill in order to close the valve on the propane tank.
