Finally got out and camped!  Fired up the 446B and made a bfast feast.

Question, do you hard core stovies use a pin or clip in behind the tank tab?  I didnt take a close up but the tank tabs that are inserted into the stove body have that hole in them and I am assuming the concept was to put a pin through for added insurance that the tank wouldnt come out mid use.  I am not a stovie but curious what you stove guys recommend?!

Great pics. Looks like a good meal. I am not a stovie (yes, I know, denial), but I never thought of that. The ones I use seem to sit securely so I have never had a reason to wonder.

I've never seen anyone put any sort of safety sort of pin there.  I suppose just a short big head nail would suffice if you had one setup someplace less stable, like say a boat or inside a trailer?

I've been cooking on Coleman suitcase stoves for 4 decades and have never had a tank fall off. I have seen one at a yard sale that had concrete form nails (duplex nails) through those holes, but have never felt the need myself.

Breakfast is looking pretty tasty!  Interesting idea regarding the tank tab with hole.  I have never seen that brought up before.  Have to check it out next time I set up one of my stoves.

I use pins in the holes for my 442 aluminum stove. With a full fuel tank, the thin aluminum metal bends just enough to make me worry.

I always thought that was the design and the reason for the little hole.  Sounds like that wasnt/isnt the case.  So it begs the question....why the hole(s)?  Usually when producing something, any extra process on the assembly line is frowned upon.

Looks like you're feeding an army.  lol   I've never had a tank come loose so I'm no help.

That hole may have been put there to help automate the process for either making the tab, or positioning it for soldering.  Pins are easier to place on a fixture than making a fixture that holds the outside of the tab accurately and repeatably.

I can see that.  Could have been a jig made that held the sheet of metal in place using pins in those two holes.  Once the sheet was held secure, stamp it, bend it, cut it, etc.  Interesting for sure.
