  • Patent number: 5058758
    Abstract: A removeable protective cover for attachment to the valve and gauge assembly commonly used with portable compressed gas cylinders. The protector is easily attached to an existing valve, regulator and gauge assembly in basically two mating elements constructed for strength to absorb unexpected impact to the valve assembly. The protective cover is removeably attached to the gas cylinder and is placed adjustably into counter opposing contact with the valve assembly so that the force of any impact to the valve assembly area is transmitted through the protective cover, rather than into potentially damaging contact with the valve assembly. The mating halves of the protective cover are clamped around the threaded neck of the cylinder for basic support, constructed to totally enclose the valve assembly, and include contact between the cover and the valve assembly which may be adjusted by means of locking screws, while still exposing the reporting gauges through openings in the protective cover.
