    CF tanks are always trying to fall and roll

    Since day one I wanted something to carry my tank and hold vertical when I fill my AG

    Today decided to do easy to make stable frame

    You can put your tank vertical or horizontal

    It would not fall or roll 

    Total price less than $20

    You just need 1/2 inch plastic pipe 

    8  3-way corner pieces

    4  T-s

    4  90 elbows

    It took me not more than an hour

    Very nice. I like how you added pipe to protect the valve assembly. Very creative. I wanted to buy a really nice tank bag but they are expensive and I would rather spend it on pellets or a new gun so I just used my sons old addidas backpack. Fits perfect. Plus it is padded and easy to carry with zippered pockets for my probes and connectors.

    I get my tank filed at a fire station so I would have to take the bottle out of the holder for the fill. Maybe only glue half the joints. Will it slid out of the holder if the bottom is dissasembled?

    My version built a few month ago. Used mesh drawer liner to protect the tank and foam pipe insulation to keep it off the ground. Also velcro straps to secure the tank down and a place to store my fill probes. Basically the same type of build as yours. Bill

    Top is not glued

    I can split frame and remove tank

    It holds pretty well, even without glue

    There’s another thread here on the tank tote. Here’s mine. 1” PVC. Top detaches using bolts but I can pull the tank up and slide it out without having to remove the top.
