20lb Cylinder Safety

Transporting small cylinders

Always transport and store a cylinder in a secure and upright position so it will not fall, shift or roll.

Always close the cylinder valve and, if required, seal with plug, even if the cylinder is empty. Ask if a plug is needed.

Never keep a filled cylinder inside a hot vehicle or transport inside a closed truck.

Always place the cylinder in a well-ventilated area of the vehicle.

Always proceed directly to your destination and immediately remove the cylinder from your vehicle.

There is a limit placed by law on the number of cylinders that can be transported in closed-bodied vehicles such as passenger cars and vans. Ask us for more information on state and local codes in place to help keep you safe.
