Good idea, I just got a 3 meter gas hose which replaced the orig Webber hose. Stays on Webber all the time and I just wrap it around the base when not in use. Other end is bayonet so just plug it in when needed.

I think if you had a few of the above quick release fittings on what you needed then you could chop and change as needed so great idea!

I have the same length of braided bayonet gas line. I found because it cant rotate when its permanently attached to the BBQ, constant use is causing it to crimp, and loose its shape. For that reason I dont leave the hose attached anymore, so thats where I thought this would solve that issue

I went into these very thoroughly..great idea I rang about using the nitto air fitting..and it was explained it wasnt gas rated..I then thought of the number of gas bottles you hear about exploding..so I thought not a good idea if you get a slight leak..went with @Ligedy bayonet kit which was good quality..priced the parts myself and just wasnt worth the running around for the little extra he charges. My weber hose is a pain to put on ..so these sound like an easy solution.I always remove my hose.but it puts strain on outlet doing so.

The quick connector is not a Nitto air fitting, its a gas variant that resembles the Nitto air. The quick connector I purchased is made by gas fitting supplier Aquaknect in Sydney, the same gas fitting supplier of Ligedy's gas bayonet fitting kit so its as safe a path as any to take if you want to add the flexibility

Did you find anywhere that sells just the quick connect end? I only need 1 x barb, but 2 x quick connect ends (if that makes sense) as I use a bottle at home and the bayonet hose on the van.
I wasnt looking. I didnt see any single ends but i assume they are supplied as pairs. You could try asking Aquaknect in Sydney if thats an option, at least youll know before searching about. If it is an option maybe @Ligedy can source them or at least you can find out who can

I would suspect that coincidentally which ever connection end you want is the $30 end, the other side will be the free one ;)
