Yes, it's looking like I will have to combine two or more fittings.

I'm realizing that the drop ear elbow may not be what I need, however. That would send the gas line away from the wall to which it's mounted at a 90 angle and I wish it to remain parallel to the wall surface. Something more like the close nipple you mentioned but one with a built-in mounting bracket that can be screwed to the wall. That might be more the ticket.

Thank you.

holyoke fittings may be able to help.
Another thought is consider a bulkhead fitting. You could fab a "L" shaped piece of sheet steel (stainless would look nicer) that could mount to your wall and house a bulkhead gas fitting/valve/quick disco.

Yes. I see how that might work out. One fitting that's a male flare on one end to receive the LP and threaded male on the other end to attach to the female end of the bulkhead fitting. The other end of the bulkhead fitting would attach to the quick connect and the bulkhead fitting itself would be mounted to the wall with an angle bracket. That way LP line would travel along the surface of the wall. I can't see why this wouldn't work. I'll look around for the parts.

Thank you!

Some propane heaters have a built in regulator and need "full tank pressure" LP to operate, (Mr Heater "Buddy" for example), others require "regulated" LP pressure.

Yes, so I've heard, thanks. Mine is an Olympian Wave 3 which is a low pressure unit and operates at the same LP pressures as my stove and fridge. So, tapping into the existing LP line behind my stove should work fine.

X2 on McMaster Carr have been using their double shut off hose couplings with gas for years with no leaks or problems. Rated for Media: Ideal for hydraulic oil, but also can be used with air, water, natural gas, steam, coolants, and petroleum products. Try searching for part number 5315K48 as a starting point.
