Best suggestion is to have a licensed(for gas)plumber help you

Use brass pipe and fittings to construct a small manifold.Attach to wall or bench within easy reach.
The FIRST thing the gas must pass through is a SHUT OFF VALVE.Than connect manifold to torch with hose.

You must have an inside shut off valve...I can`t stress that enough......Plato
