Hi

Is there any negative effect if a gas bottle holder is mounted horizontally?

Regards

Tumelo, there is no problem mounting the holder horizontally, however there is a problem carrying a gas bottle in that holder horizontally :shock:

Taken from the CADAC website "The cylinders for instance, should always be stored in the upright position to prevent leakages from occurring at the valves. If the cylinders are not stored in the upright position dangerous gas pockets can form, posing the risk of explosion."

You also stand a chance of the bottle falling out of the holder. I have personally seen one fall out of a horisontal bracket on a trip :!:

Thanx for the response, I thought I'd first ask, eventullually space becomes sooooooo precious and one starts to look at even the smallest/weirdest of corners to use. :shh:
