This stainless beer side fitting screws onto the top beer out fitting of any Sankey coupler, and converts it to accept beer (liquid) ball lock fittings. Makes it really easy to switch between a commercial keg and a ball lock home brewing keg. This is just the top beer side, you will need to order P61 (gas side) in order to make both sides of your Sankey coupler ball lock.
Includes inner sealing washer. For best results, hand tighten firmly, and then tighten a quarter turn with a wrench (overtightening will distort the inner sealing washer).

Q: How tall is a normal (~4" height) Sankey coupler with this added? Any idea how far this protrudes above a sixtel keg when everything is attached? For example: https://www.williamsbrewing.com/Home-Brewing-Equipment/Kegging-Equipment/Commercial-Keg-Conversion-Parts/Taprite-Sankey-Stainless-Us-Keg-Coupling-Head?ItemId=10365302
A: This will add 3" of height at least with a ball lock attached. Look at our item P64 Low Profile Sankey Adapter for a way to make this shorter.

Q: are you supposed remove the existing check valves from the sankey? (gas and beer sides) and the little ball
A: No, leave the check valve on the gas in horizontal side, and leave the ball and spider keeper in the top of the Sankey coupler.

Q: What is the thread size on this? I'm looking for a 1/2" NPT.
A: The thread size is standard beer nut thread size, which is 7/8-14. This is not 1/2" NPT.
Easy to use, works as expected
Enables you to replace the barb/tail piece on the top of whatever sankey coupler you have so that it connects to a standard ball lock coupler. Makes switching between commercial kegs and homebrew corny kegs easy - no hose clamps!
Performs the job as advertised. Makes it easy to swap between keg types.
I bought this and the gas side adapter and am happy with the whole set up. Every once in a while I will pick up a keg of microbrew to accompany my homebrew. With these adapters, I no longer have to remove the ball lock fittings to attach to the sankey tap. Quick and easy!
Excellent price on a well made part
About the best price for these--some retailers really gouge you for them. Shipping was reasonable and fast.
I'm glad I got this, I makes a commercial keg so much easier to use in a kegerator that's mostly for homebrew. Watch the keg king keg coupler YouTube video for a good guide on how to use this along with a lot of other good info. The video says there's no need to use the washer from the keg coupler since this adapter has a washer, however, I found this adapters washer is too squishy and I had to use both to form a seal. Worked perfect after I used the washer from the coupler.
