if it starts to rain you have to be on your knees in order to get at it and use both hands to disconnect. i generally leave it open if we go for a walk but if i am camping next to a bunch of students i would likely close it to keep my barley collection safe!
the disconnect has a valve on it that i can turn off the propane right on it, i figured this would be a great way to fix my situation.
