Coleman Propane Tree Hazard

I have had two Coleman Propane Tree had the plastic connectors fail on me that holds the tree to the propane tank. I feel this is a pretty substantial hazard and when I tried to contact Coleman all they are concerned with is getting a copy of the receipt for the purchase which I did not keep. One tree is about 3 years old and the other is less than a year and both were in different locations. Both have same plastic grip/connector failure where the plastic just seem to disintegrate one day... I have attached three picture to show what i am talking about..
This is just for your information and you might consider using this tree with some caution in future if you have one.

They use that weak plastic nut because its a thermal device, designed to fall away under high heat. That stops the gas flow.

They should not have built it without more support, but then it probably wouldn't seperate in a fire.
