Gas press fit end stop

Postby carbar » Mon Sep 10, 2012 1:42 pm


I want to replace my gas cooker with an electric one, which would mean cutting the existing gas pipe and fitting a stopend. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these:

Can't find any information on the tool required to install it, but I was wondering if that would be easier than a compression fitting.

These fittings are good but the tool to compress them are expensive. You need a Registered gas Installer to cap the gas pip - this isn't a DIY job.
