phrases, sayings, idioms and expressions at

I am terribly sorry, I am not quite sure whether or not I am misusing this forum, if so - please feel free to remove my message, if it is intended for English Only expressions. But I recently saw an authentic Gas Mask in an Army / Navy store, and I was puzzled to see a German saying "Hier Stopfen Abziehen Dann Kappe Abschrauben." I was wondering what the rough translation of this German phrase was, and why it is on a gas mask.
Many Thanks,
