A chef is as prepared as his tools, and something as out of the way as a gas hose can make the difference between success and failure. An improperly installed gas hose can mean poor performance, unnecessary replacement, or even the risk of gas poisoning and death. Not such an insignificant part of the kitchen after all.
T&S gas hoses begin with a hydro-formed inner core which provides both strength and flexibility. The core is covered with a high quality stainless steel braiding and then with a thin extruded coating for added cleanliness. One of the main strains on gas hoses comes when the unit it's connected to is pushed back to the wall. A typical gas hose will twist or kink with the strain, and repeated stress, or even one stressful push, can tear the hose material near its end fitting. Kinks in the hose can also restrict gas flow, which can mean unpredictable cooking conditions or even unusable conditions. Another significant strain for a gas hose is the stretch it experiences when the unit is pulled away from the wall. Without a restraining cord, or simply careless staff pulling too far on the unit, the hose can be strained and experience the same risk of damage at its ends.
Safe-T-Link connectors are designed to work together with our exclusive SwiveLink, the ultimate connector accessory for gas hoses. SwiveLink adds a swivel to each end of the hose, allowing it to swing from side to side without kinking. SwiveLink can snug a hose closer to the wall without restricting its gas flow. A closer fit means additional kitchen space for more important things, like cooking. SwiveLink also provides the most reach for your gas hose. Ina addition, our patented swivel design can't lock up unlike some of our competitors. Since Safe-T-Link is available in a variety of lengths and diameters for increased BTU capacity, there are plenty of options to meet the needs of your kitchen environment.
Installing a Safe-T-Link is fairly simple, but keep in mind that the dangers of working with gas should guide you carefully through the process. First, make sure the manual gas shut off valve is turned to off. If you can't find a shut off valve, turn off the main gas supply line valve. Never proceed unless you're sure the gas is turned off. Look at your installation space to see how the appliance connection will match up with the gas supply line. If both are more than 18" above the floor, use a vertical loop. If both are low, use a horizontal loop. If one of the connections is higher than the other, use a combination loop, turning the hose to accommodate the height distance. Now ensure the two ends of the hose will offset each other. This offset ensures that the hose, with SwiveLink installed, will be able to turn to fit snugly against the wall. If your connections are not offset, you will need to install an elbow on the supply line to create one. Then create the gas supply side. If the connection is already male, apply Teflon tape or pipe-joint compound to its thread. If the connection is female, apply Teflon tape or pipe-joint compound to a pipe nipple and thread that into the connection. Next, install the SwiveLink, applying Teflon or compound to the male thread to the fitting, and threading it into the assembly you've been working on.
Then move to the appliance side. Apply sealant and thread the male end of the other SwiveLink fitting into the elbow and tighten it. Attach the Safe-T-Link gas hose to each SwiveLink and tighten. Check that all connections are tight and perform a leak test. Then ensure that your Safe-T-Link is appropriately marked. Affix the notice label to the back of the appliance and the yellow label to the wall near the shut-off valve. Finally, and this is an important step, attach the restraining cable to the wall and to the appliance you've just installed. Adjust its length so that the Safe-T-Link can never be fully extended. This cable will keep your gas hose performing for a long life without unnecessary strain.
Congratulations, you've just installed the finest gas hose available. Treat it well, and the T&S Safe-T-Link and SwiveLink will keep your kitchen appliances well-fueled for years and years to come.
