Had an issue with a leaking CO2 line recently, which left me with an empty bottle (noob mistake, put it togeather and didn't check for leaks!). I have picked up some threaded ball lock connectors, JG CO2/Beer line and associated JG connectors. But there is one connection still that I want to upgrade, and that's the regulator output. I don't like the idea of heating the hose and stretching it over the barb, and then also using a hose-clamp if I don't have to. This wasn't where I had my leak though, so perhaps I'm overcomplicating it and I probably don't need a JG on the regulator output. But I still want to know :)

Has anyone swapped to some kind of threaded outlet so a JG fitting can be used on the regulator?

I'd like that too.. but perhaps the max JG pressure is less than the max output pressure on most regs? could that be why you dont see them?

I have a JG fitting on my reg that I use with a soda stream bottle I use for my party keg set ups. JG makes it easy to change things around when you need to. I have 3 different mobile set ups, so using JG fitting is a breeze.

I use this Fitting or this fitting . Not sure which thread it was.

Also I use these clamps on any barb fittings for my gas hose in my bar. Haven't had a leak since using them and the gas is always on. When I used the worm style hose clamps I lost a full 6 kg bottle from a leak.

I have been looking for regulators in the UK. (going on holiday shortly)
Alot of the shops sell them with secondary's all setup with JG fittings.
