 Close all the taps on the burner.

 Turn the switch knob of the regulator from ‘ON’ position to ‘OFF’ position.

 Grip the regulator and pull the bush (black plastic locking ring) up and lift the regulator by giving a gentle swivel. Regulator will thus get detached from the valve.

WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED USING THE BURNER, TURN THE SWITCH KNOB OF THE REGULATOR CLOCKWISE TO THE ‘OFF’ POSITION.
