Propane shut off valves

Hello all,

I posted earlier that my propane tank did not last long after pickup from oliver.  We have the additional propane hookup, so we have 2.  I've not used them yet and after inspecting them I see what looks like a swivel shutoff valve.  Both are inline with the supply tubing.  Is that a shutoff position or do I need to rotate it to be perpendicular with the supply tube?

Those ball valve shutoffs usually have yellow handles and are usually positioned perpendicular to the supply line when the flow of gas is meant to be off.  However, even if the handles are in the "on" position there should not be any gas flowing unless there is something connected to them or unless the valve at the end of the propane line is faulty.
