Only use hose supplied with your Fire Pit. It is designed to work with a LP Gas Cylinder and is a Type-1 connection device with the following features:

  1. The system will not allow gas flow from the cylinder until a positive connection to the cylinder valve has been made. NOTE: The cylinder valve must be turned off (clockwise) before any connection is made or removed. 
  2. A flow limiting device, when activated, restricts the flow of gas. To reset, turn the regulator valve to off position. 

If you have any issues with your hose or regulator, please contact TemboTusk

Rules to Live By:

  1. Never leave your TemboTusk Firepit unattended.
  2. Never use the Fire Pit indoors. ((Carbon Monoxide) For OUTDOOR USE ONLY.
  3. Adult use only. Children are not to operate the Fire Pit. 
  4. Before attaching the propane canister check to make sure all your valves are in the OFF position and that the hose is in good working condition.
  5. Make sure all fittings are snuggly attached.
  6. Always light the burner on the lowest setting.
  7. Use a long BBQ lighter or Tembo Tusk Arc lighter and light at the first hole on burner closest to the gas inlet.
  8. Wait for your Fire Pit to completely cool before touching it.
  9. This is not a cooking device.
  10. Always check with local law enforcement regarding fire restrictions.

Never use the Fire Pit indoors. Carbon Monoxide is deadly. 

Make sure that the Fire Pit is in a properly ventilated areaoutdoors. Never use the Fire Pit in a camper, tent, or garage. Propane gives off carbon monoxide. Too much carbon monoxide will cause a person’s oxygen level to be depleted and may lead to death. Make sure that the propane cylinder that attaches to the Fire Pit is up to date and in good working order. Tighten all fittings on the tank and Fire Pit burner before use.

Place the Fire Pit on a firm, level and nonflammable surface, away from brush or overhangs. To protect the ground, put the Fire Pit on a fire blanket, grab a flat rock or use an established fire ring. Keep the propane tank upright. If you hear or smell a propane leak, quickly turn off the burner, immediately exit the area and call the fire department for assistance.

The Fire Pit will be hot during use and will take time to cool after use. Use gloves to disassemble. 


The Regulator Hose Assembly is a pre-assembled unit. Do not take apart. Prior to each use, visually inspect the regulator hose assembly. If there is evidence of abrasion, wear, cuts or leaks, the hose must be replaced prior to the appliance being put into operation. To remove, use a wrench to loosen the brass connector on the hose. To reattach, wrench tighten the brass connector back to the burner assembly.


  1. Check that cylinder is upright, and the valve is closed by turning the knob clockwise. 
  2. Check that the Regulator Control Valve is also closed by turning the knob clockwise. 
  3. Remove the protective safety caps from the cylinder valve and the Type-1 Coupling Nut on the regulator. 
  4. Insert the nipple of the large coupling nut into the cylinder valve outlet. Ensure that the coupling nut is centered properly. 
  5. Turn the large coupling nut clockwise by hand and tighten to a full stop. Take care not to cross thread the coupling nut onto the cylinder valve. Do not use tools to tighten connection. 

NOTE: If you are unable to make the connection, repeat steps 4 and 5. 

  1. Check that the hose does not contain kinks, does not come into contact with sharp edges, and does not contact surfaces that may become hot during use.


Note: The gas leak test must be performed in an area that has adequate lighting in order to see if bubbles are developing. DO NOT use a flashlight to check for bubbles. 

  1. Create a mixture of 50% water and 50% liquid dishwashing soap. 
  2. Turn the gas cylinder valve to the OFF position (clockwise). Then turn regulator control valve to OFF position (clockwise). 
  3. To turn ON the fuel supply, turn the cylinder valve knob one turn counterclockwise. Gas will flow through and stop at the regulator. 
  4. Using a clean brush, apply the soap water mixture to the following: Cylinder Valve to Cylinder Connection Nut to Cylinder Valve Back side of Connection Nut to Brass Nipple Control Valve next to Regulator connection to Gas Supply Hose LP Cylinder Welds Gas Supply Hose connection to Burner on Fryer Full length of Gas Supply Hose 
  5. Check each junction for growing bubbles which indicates a leak. 
  6. Next, turn ON regulator valve (clockwise) to permit gas to pass through the hose. Apply soap water mixture to full length of gas supply hose and connection to burner on fryer. Check each place for growing bubbles which indicates a leak. 
  7. Turn OFF gas supply valve (clockwise) on LP Gas Cylinder. 
  8. Turn regulator control valve to OFF position (clockwise). 
  9. Tighten any leaking connections. 
  10. Repeat soap water mixture test until no leaks are detected.
  11. After you are certain there are no leaks, turn the tank valve and regulator control valve to OFF position.Wait 5 minutes for any gas fumes to evacuate before lighting the burner.

Never use this appliance in an enclosed space such as a camper, tent, car or home.


The LP (Liquid Propane) gas cylinder specifically designed to be used the Fire Pit must have a Type-1 cylinder valve and an over-filling protection device (OPD). 

DO NOT connect this appliance to an existing #510 POL cylinder valve with Left Hand Threads. The Type-1 valve can be identified with the large external threads on the valve outlet.

DO NOT connect to a propane cylinder exceeding 20lb capacity.

DO NOT connect to a cylinder that uses any other type of valve connection device.


To check your local codes, see your local LP gas dealer or natural gas company. This appliance is not intended to be connected to a natural gas supply line. Fire Pit, it must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for LP gas cylinders by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CSA-B339, Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods as applicable with a listed over-filling device (OPD).

The cylinder must also be equipped with: 

  • A shut-off valve terminating in a Type-1 gas cylinder valve outlet.
  • A Type-1 valve that prevents gas flow until a positive seal is obtained. 
  • An arrangement for vapor withdrawal. 
  • A collar to protect the cylinder shut-off valve.
  • A safety relief device having direct communication with the vapor space of the cylinder. 
  • A listed Overfilling Prevention Device (OPD). 
  • A protective cap on cylinder Type-1 Outlet. 


  • Turn off the cylinder valve when your Fire Pit is not in use. 
  • Handle the LP gas cylinder with care.
  • Always secure the LP gas cylinder in an upright position. 
  • Never connect an unregulated LP gas cylinder to your Fire Pit. 
  • DO NOT expose LP gas cylinders to excessive heat or ignition sources. 
  • DO NOT store a spare LP gas cylinder near your Fire Pit. 
  • Allow only qualified LP gas dealers to fill or repair your LP gas cylinder 
  • DO NOT allow the LP gas cylinder to be filled beyond 80% capacity. 
  • Read and follow all warnings/instructions that are on the cylinder and that accompany this product.

Never store spare LP gas cylinder near your Fire Pit. This could cause excess pressure to be expelled through the vapor relief valve resulting in fire, explosion, or severe personal injury, including death. 


  • Keep the ventilation opening(s) of the LP gas cylinder enclosure free and clear from obstruction and debris. 
  • DO NOT insert any foreign objects into the valve outlet. Damage to the back-check could result. A damaged back-check can cause a leak, possibly resulting in explosion, fire, severe personal injury, bodily harm or death.


Allow only qualified LP gas dealers to properly fill or repair your LP gas cylinder.
