I had trouble with that too. The solution is to squeeze the loose piece until it's slightly narrower than the gas inlet and then slide it onto the inlet so that the indentations line up and click into place. My SIL made it look easy. The gas does not leak; the hole facilitates a carburetor/Venturi effect and you have to have it in order for the grill to work.

The rectangular wind guard is adjustable to trim the air flow that mixes with the gas for burner combustion. The ideal flame color should be blue, not orange, and a good consistent flame. At a higher altitude more air maybe needed for good combustion, due to the lower atmospheric pressure, and the opposite at lower altitudes. Gas and air mix, and is drawn through the burner tube. This is the basic theory.
Once you place the wind gaurd on the grill if you squeeze it slightly it should tighten into place.
The burner tube will not leak fuel if the grill is assembled and operated correctly.
You should only have the gas tank attached when you are using the grill. When you are finished cooking turn the regulator off and disconnect the tank from the grill for storage separately.
