Hi lads,
The title says it all. I have just purchased some coca cola pin lock kegs and have found a couple of different disconnects from various places. I want to buy the smallest ones i could (for height purposes in my fridge). I found some 6cm and some 8cm ones. I would like to get the 6cm ones if possible, but on the bottom of a similar listing it listed the disconnects as being for pepsi kegs. Here is the ones I am looking at

Would these work?
Thanks!

hi mate,

if your kegs are 'pin lock' then only pin lock disconects will fit

your link clearly states 'ball lock' which are different to pin lock and will not fit to a pin lock keg.

their are two main keg types , pin lock and ball lock.

ball lock being the more universal type in australia but that doesnt mean they are better . just different

I think you can buy the actual posts if you want to swap your kegs from pin lock to ball lock , but it may be cheaper n easier to sell the kegs and buy ball lock kegs if height is going to be a problem in your setup :)


have a look at this shop , you may find it useful http://www.chicompany.net/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_163
