Curious why they make flashback arresters to go on the handle,
as well as on the regulators. While I can see the advantages of
both, regulator mounted ones seem to make the most sense. Keep
the handle as clutter free/handy as possible. What are your
thoughts?

I prefer to stop the fireball in the torch. If you're the type of guy who drags around his hose and cut's over it the regulator might be best.

I had them on the handle for about an hour. It made the torch too long to be useable in many places. I put them at the regulators now. The hoses blowing/burning is really not that big of an even. The tanks going would be.

MSHA requires them at the torch. In mining operations, you often have 50' or more hose stretched out over anything & everything, flammable or no, so it does make some sense.

Flash Back Arresters go on the regulators. Back flow check valves go on the torch handle. Flash back arresters have back flow check valves in them, but you still have all that hose between the torch and the regulators.
