This will work for a year or two, then it won't. Consider buying two to save on shipping.
They have these things designed to work for a while and then fail. I've replaced ours three times now, if there is a better one on the market I'd like to know where it is- I searched and finally held my nose and bought this one. I don't mind spending money to get quality, but I am confident that this will fail in shortly over a year- just like the last ones. The problem is the pilot light assembly is two pieces of thin stainless steel stamped and crimped together, and a metal tube that carries the gas up to the flame that is prone to corrosion. Once corrosion begins it spreads the two plates apart allowing gas to leak from all sides and the pilot no longer works. Buy a new one, (rinse and repeat).
At least this works out of the box, unlike the igniters (but that's another story).

Perfect replacement for my older heater
I was just about to replace our Endless Summer (Blue Rhino) heater which would not stay lit but for a couple minutes. Parts for this thing are getting rare so this assembly was our only hope. Fits and works perfectly! Easy replacement. Thank you.

Hard to find, and fits the purpose.
Hard to find, and fits the purpose. It looked generic enough to fit my standing Coleman patio heater. most parts fit, and a few were scabbed from the original. But it had the pilot regulator and tip switch needed to put the heater back into service.

Saved my Coleman Patio Heater
My 10 year old Coleman patio heater had just failed. Coleman no longer made the pilot assembly and I was unable to find a replacement in the aftermarket. Low and behold I found this unit that appeared to be the same part of the pilot sub-assembly. I ordered it just in case. You can't imagine how happy I was to find out that it was and it worked. I just took apart the old Coleman pilot assembly (2 small bolts and nuts) and put this new one in. Reattached it to the heater and back in business. As always follow all safety procedures when installing and if you're not comfortable doing yourself, have a professional do it.

Does NOT include the black safety cutout switch
Does NOT include the black safety cutout switch shown in the picture - you must re-use the original.

This is what you need when when the pilot lights but it won't go to full flame. I have a patio heater and have found that I need to replace this every five to six years. Way better than buying a new $500-$700 patio heater. Easy to install.

Bot this a while ago just put it in my 16 Year old Patio heater and it lit right up on the first time and STAYED Lit. Mine came with the anti tilt switch so it was all just plug and play. Very easy to install and I'm so happy and surprised how well it works!

Easily to install and works like a harm
Easily to install and works like a harm. Nice to be able to use the outdoor heater again this fall at the pavilion at the cabin.

works perfect. Easy to install
works perfect. Easy to install. My pilot light would not stay on so I suspected the thermocouple, I had to order the assembly to get the thermocouple.

This my third one in 3 years, they just don’t hold up. Not sure why. Could have bought a new heater by now.
