Hi question regarding propagators where is the best place to have them in the garden in or out of direct sunlight

Depends what you are going to use them to propagate

Direct sunlight would simply cook your seeds and plants, unless you remove the lid. I've found with my electric propagator in the greenhouse that I've cooked far more seeds than have failed due to lack of warm temperatures.
Cover the propagator with a shading material such as green mesh and keep an eye on the temperature inside.
