Portable gas containers can be found everywhere. Unfortunately, many of these plastic cans have serious design and manufacturing defects that could cause users to suffer traumatic burn injuries and even death. These horrific accidents can be avoided easily with only slight changes to the design of the portable can as well as with sufficient warnings that inform users properly of the potential for danger.
The issues associated with these cans include:
- The lack of an important safety feature, the flame arrestor, within the spout of the gas container. Such a simple modification usually only costs no more than 50 cents and is made of a small metal device that has holes and fits into the spout of a gas can. The arrestor works by forcing any flames to travel through a narrow channel that will not let the flames pass through. This would keep any remaining gas inside of the can from igniting and exploding. This particular design has been used widely in various capacities over the past several years, to even include use in bottles of rum with high-proof alcohol.
- Not using a child-resistant gas cap. For many years, manufacturers such as Blitz USA have sold portable gas cans without caps that are child-resistant. Even though the replacement cost of an original cap with a cap that is child-resistant is no more than a few cents, manufacturers have still refused to take the necessary action in order to protect the users of their products.
- Improper warnings on the gas containers. The gas can manufacturers often place molded warnings onto the side of the containers in words that are small and the same color as the container, which is often times too hard to read. A warning that is clearly visible would only cost a little more and could prevent many tragic accidents.
