We bought ours in Super U a while ago (St Meen-le-Grand) but I've seen them today in Super U Erquy, around 3€50ish. Its blue plastic and was in the diy area where the bits of gas tubing and fittings are.

Good luck in your search.

Take care !   Normally ,finger or hand tight is sufficient , providing the rubber washer on the regulator is in good condition . The use of any tool could overtighten the connection .

A friend has a 'key' specifically for this so they must be available somewhere...

I would suggest changing bottles/suppliers to one with a head(valve)that just clicks on & off. Normally the valve is free when you place your deposit on the bottle the first time.

Now these are the little bottles(18-25 odd kilos) you put under your kithcen sink or cabinet for your cooker.

Thank you anonymous, my husband does use a spanner but is finding it difficult with his arthritis so a key would be easier.

I've never seen one.  I always use an adjustable spanner or a large pair of water pump pliers, whatever is handy at the time.
