What is a gas bayonet?

A gas bayonet is a device fixed to a wall or floor to supply gas for heating or cooking purposes. Gas bayonet fittings are common in Australia and can be installed in homes, caravans or campers. They can be installed anywhere you want a gas appliance to be connected and supply liquified petroleum gas (LPG) or natural gas at low pressures. They are an economical option and can connect various appliances.

Please note - Ryan Old Plumbing can not help with gas bayonet fittings in caravans or campers.


When the temperature drops, you can use a gas heater to warm your home or outdoor entertaining areas. And if you are hosting a barbecue, outdoor gas bayonet fitting lets you cook efficiently without running out of gas.

Our gas fitting team can install gas bayonets for various appliances like:

Parts of a gas bayonet

The male fitting has two push and twist slots that connect with two locking lugs on the female gas bayonet fitting. When the male fitting is attached securely to the female fitting, the protrusion in male fitting opens the gas valve and allows for a safe supply of gas to the appliance.
