About this deal

Most of these gas canisters have screw on EN 417 Lindal connectors, however three on the right do not. There are moving parts, which are mostly plastic and I suspect would break if subjected to too much torque when tightening. This does not get a great deal of use from me and I suspect the reliance on plastic parts may result in a failure one day.

The CV470 clamping channel is much deeper than the Lindal channel, so first job is to cut off the blue tabs from the end of the blue plastic CV470 connector and then file the cut surfaces smooth. Having given two talks on camping stoves at recent festivals, one of the key things I realised was that not everyone knows about the different types of gas canisters available for camping stoves. All I can say is that the link I provided is the actual seller from where I purchased mine and the adapter I have shown is the one that was sent to me, if some time ago.The gas canister uses a butane/propane blend, and can be easily connected and disconnected from your stove thanks to the ‘Easy-Clic’ safety valve system.

A backpacking stove being used with propane has to be very carefully opened with the burner valve control due to the higher pressure that propane exerts. I’m afraid I’m not aware of any adapters that allow you to use other canisters on a pierceable stove.However, there are a couple of special stoves that will allow you to use either type of canister: screw-on and Easy-Clic. Which is just as well as Hikin’ Jim at Adventures in Stoving (great site), advises strongly against using such a stove with this adapter. So a stove that used the camping gas method to attach to either kind of can woukd be superior due no brass threads to wear out and flexibility. By utilising an adapter with a stove for which such use is not recommended this could potentially adversely affect the performance of a stove, or worse.

Thanks for taking the time to reply – just in case anyone else finds this thread – I bought the following and it screws in both ends (one to the stove attachment and one to the new UK type canister) and it works a treat! I’m better with the smaller, lighter camping stoves/canisters rather than the bigger ones, so I’m afraid I’ve not tried what you’re suggesting. These canisters are a bit heavy to carry around in a backpack but might be used for camping from a car or at a basecamp. If it is a lindal valve type, it is invariably empty and some lazy git has declined to pack out his rubbish. However, if you’re travelling through different countries or out in the middle of nowhere, you can’t always find screw-on gas canisters.

There are only a few manufacturers of [screw thread] canisters world wide, and they manufacture all the different brands. Why has no-one done a female screw in to easy clic…or has Camingaz got some patent strangle hold on this way round? That stove has a pre-heat tube (not all remote stoves do) so can be used with either a gas or liquid feed. Most camping stoves are just compatible with screw-on canisters and some are just compatible with Easy-Clic canisters.

Problem is that I do not have the fitting to empty them and I am apprehensive about puncturing them. What’s the best kind of stove to use there (we’ll be riding down the west coast route north to south)? None of these are of much use to any backpacker passing through as most stoves will not connect to them and they gather cobwebs for months. Hi Tim, I have an old Campingaz heater that uses the pierceable canisters that are hard to find in Canada. There are many commercial adapters that will enable some backpacking stoves to be connected to gas canisters that do not have screw on type Lindal valve connectors.They are small, red ¨Gaskartuche¨ gross weight 290 grams (Butane 180 grams) Have tried recycling centres and outlets to retun them. It’s possible that this question has already been answered but if it has I can’t find the question or response. Just a handful of manufacturers have produced lightweight stoves that will attach to a small variety of canisters. Your article also helped me figure out where to get certain systems, so that was very helpful, thank you! I contacted Campingaz to see if they have an adapter so that I could use the screw on canisters like the Number 5 example you show that are readily available in various sizes here.
