  1. Place blade on the saw in between the end of the bracket and the fitting body. Cut down completely though the fitting body. The gap will act as a guide for the blade.

2. Grasp the locking bracket and pull straight out over the remaining fitting stud. If necessary, gently tap the bracket off with a hammer. The clutch mechanism will fall apart allowing the locking bracket to be removed.

3. Place a pip wrench on the remaining stud and remove the partial fitting, leaving the thread of the valve body intact for replacement with the TPG device.

4. The CGA fitting, locking bracket and clutch mechanism will be completely unusable.
