Like all Front Runner rack accessories, the installation is simple. Just slide the bolts into the t-slots of any rack tray, set down the holder and adjust for tank size, then add nuts and tighten.

The collar and bottle/tank can be easily removed to move the tank around the campsite or when refilling.

The latches that hold that tank and collar to the base are lockable and will fit standard padlocks. Locks not included.

The unique design adjusts to accommodate multiple size gas bottles.

Answer by Front Runner
Will this bracket work with the Eezi-awn K9 roof rack?
Question by Waldo
This bracket was made specifically designed to work with the Front Runner racks. Thank you!
Answer by Front Runner

I bought the Worthington 281149 1-Gallon Steel Propane Cylinder With Type 1 With Overflow Prevention Device Valve and the cylinder neck slat does not clear the curved up handles on the propane cylinder. If the collar was about 1/2 inch wider in diameter it would fit as illustrated. Does Frontrunner offer a spacer to expand the diameter of the cylinder neck slat?
Question by Marco
Unfortunately we do not. What you can do is unbolt the collar and re bolt it under the flared out part of the tank.If you have any questions please feel free to call us.
Answer by Front Runner

Answer by Front Runner
What is the minimum diameter? Will this work with 5lb or 11lb tanks?
Question by Reggie Lafaye

It works with 5Lb or 1 Gallon Tanks.

Answer by Front Runner
Where do I find a bottle that will fit. This doesn't look like it will fit a standard 5 gallon bottle. Thanks!
Question by Avalanche
We recommend the Worthington 1 Gallon or 5 Pound tank. This bracket was produced for the global market and works with a wide range of tanks.

Customer Reviews

Dig it Review by poppylee
Got this holder for christmas. Found the tank at sportsmans wharehouse. I leave it on my jeep and hook up a hose to my stove for camping. Works good and very secure. (Posted on 5/16/2017)
I'm a bit dissapointed Review by Joeral
I have always been a big fan of Front Runner products but i must say that I'm a bit disappointed in the propane tank holder. After reading the specs and recommendations as to which tank to buy i purchased the Flame King YSN011. Well the collar of the tank holder will not fit over the handle on the tank nor will it fit around the metal guard that is around the valve.
My solution since i cannot return the tank was to cut the handle flange off of the tank and purchase 4 aluminum spacers from Home Depot to widen the collar, disassembling the collar every time the tank is used would be a joke, my Mod works. Front Runner should seriously take a look at their design and possibly ship it with a set of various size spacers (cheap solution) just my .02 cents.
I'm still a Front Runner Fan! (Posted on 4/29/2017)
Small Collar Review by Lexusallterrain
It is very hard if not impossible to find a 5LBS Propane tank with a small collar, looks odd looking in the present installation!

Where can we find the right dimmensions Tank? (Posted on 8/26/2015)
