    I'm looking to connect a NG BBQ I just bought. My house already has the gas line for it. However, when I try to connect the gas line from the BBQ, it doesn't quite fit in. It's a close fit but I don't know what it won't "snap" in. Please see the pics below:

    I am having a gas line extended to hook up a new gas range, and I have run into an issue with the clearance of the counter just next to the range. I only have 13 inches of clearance (the cabinets are from the '40s and I guess they did things differently back then). See the photo. The first...

    Is this a valve that was left there to permit extension of the gas line (assuming that the pipe diameter would be appropriate for the appliance, etc.)? Or is this some kind of safety valve that should be used to bleed the line or perform some other function? Or both? I live in Michigan.
