Metal Mate does not have an approval from PHMSA to manufacture cylinders to DOT specifications; therefore, cylinders marked with the Metal Mate name are not DOT specification cylinders.

These cylinders may not perform to the marked DOT performance standard and may not be safe for commercial transportation or consumer use.
