propane pigtail

I seem to be at a loss, I have a two stage Marshall 290 regulator that has a POL connector attached directly to it which then connects to the tank. I want to install a acme type one connector,but they all seem to have a 1/4 inch inverted flare connector on the end, I need a 1/2 Inch inverted flare. Is there such a type of pigtail from rv dealers. Or do I need a new style regulator to accept a 1/4 inch flared end. Thanks in advance

There may be a better solution than this, but Low's and/ or Home depot may carry a brass reducer that goes from 1/4" to 1/2". I bought most of my propane connections from them. One solution is to put in the respected flares and use the reducer to connect them. This may not be the best solution as you end up with multiple connection in this area. If it was me, I would look at getting another regulator to minimize the connections.
Post what you ended up with for a solution.

Thanks I may go and have a look to see if Kent or CT has 1/2 TO 1/4 reducer, I would assume if they don't leak it will be fine.

For some reason, I'm thinking the connection to the regulator downstream is a pipe fitting, not flared.
