    Resurrecting this one (came up in my search and turn out I've asked this question before!).

    Well, current plan is to get the 3 tap cobra bradsbrew is offering and pair it on to a kegerator series 3. Has anyone installed a cobra font on their kegerator? Does it fit straight away or does it need modding? Also, does it stick out on the inside too much? - blocking a keg?

    I have the 3 tap cobra style font from keg king. You have to drill out the existing hole a little bit. Also the tails on the font from keg king needed to be cut a little shorter as they interfered with the kegs when you have 3 in the kegerator. I can put some pics up if you want to see how I set mine up.

    Thanks like. Those pictures are worth a 100 words. Think I'll need to either make a spacer to go on top or cut those tubes like you have.

    PS: cool bayonet Brad.

    Any one able to report how cool this KK cobra stays in summer?
    Does the cold from the fridge get conducted quite well through the metal and metalic lines, without pumping water/glyclol through it?

    I'm in the same boat, looking at getting one of these setups for my kegmaster 3 fridge (using perlick flow control taps as well). guessing i'll have to cut a bit out to make the thread fit through too. Anyone who's done it got any comments/suggestions?
