    Just change the valve to a DIN. No need for a converter.

    Are you sure the valve is not convertible? Lots of valves have a central core that you can take out to turn an a-clamp valve into DIN valve

    Either take the insert out (if it's a convertible DIN valve, or replace the valve -they're about 30

    (sorry, my first reply was me misreading that you'd bought an A clamp reg)

    But there are true 'A' clamp valves out there, check if there's a hex shaped hole (where the gas comes out) then it's a DIN with a converter screwed in.

    Yes. That valve is not convertable.

    An MDE valve is as good as they get and they are around 30. An adaptor will cost you nearly as much.

    For me the answer is simple, just replace the valve

    You could us a DIN-A clamp converter:



    But at 39, it would be just as cheap (and look nicer, be more compact and have fewer O rings) to replace the valve.
