Lever position on propane quick connects

We have the propane quick connects on our 2020 LE2, and just purchased a Weber 1200 and an adapter kit. The Oliver video about the quick connect is vague about which position the lever is in when open or closed. We haven't used the quick connects yet, and the levers are currently parallel to the fitting, as they came from the factory. Is that open? I'm used to seeing levers on shutoff valves perpendicular to the pipe or fitting they are attached to.

If the lever is parallel to the line it is open.  If it perpendicular (90 degree angle) it is closed.  You can’t attach anything if the lever is in the open position.  It must be at a right angle to attach your grill.  If nothing is connected it doesn’t matter which way the lever is, no gas will flow.  Mile

I agree with you that the lever should be perpendicular to the quick connect fitting.  My rear quick connect fitting lever has been bumped by sewer hoses a couple of times and ended up in the parallel position.
