Fitting a solenoid

I've had a regulator just like this laying around for some time now.

Although mine has a female fitting to the gas bottle.
What I'm wondering, is there a way to fit a solenoid and needle valve onto the fitting at the bottom as there isn't any threading to it.
You basically just slide a tube on it.

Thanks.

Just fit it inline, use a short stretch of hose and attach it that way.

What About any back pressure?
Just worried about when the solenoid kicks in over night, the pressure of gas stopping would push (pop?) the tubing off the regulator... or am I being a worrying little old so an' so?

What about between regulator and solenoid?

So it'll go:

Regulator__small length of tubing___solenoid(screw type connection)____small length of tubing_____needle valve____tubing to bubble counter etc...

Have I got it or just given you a head ache?
