This gas distributor (with a machined aluminum billet body) featurs the home brew standard ¼ inlet and outlet hose barbs, so they will fit ¼ interior diameter gas tubing (unlike most distributors which feature 5/16 barbs for commercial beer gas hose).
Great for distributing gas from a single regulator to 3 kegs. Each dispensing valve has a check valve to prevent beer from backing up into the distributor. On the aluminum billet body, the end opposite the inlet barb is plugged with a ¼" male NPT plug. This can be removed and another brass valve or part like our Q87, D16, or D69 (at left) installed. 7.5" long.

Q: Can the fittings be removed to flip around the orientation?
A: It's possible but will be difficult since the valves have a thread lock glue on them to seal them in to the body of the manifold.
This works much better than the homemade one I had and discarded long ago. I like that each dispensing valve has a check valve.
Watch Your Line Size
Unbeknownst to me these are 1/4" nipples and everything else for Co2 is 5/16". So my gas lines were way too loose. I replaced the feed nipple with 5/16 so I could use standard gas line from the regulator to this, then 3/16" beer line to my kegs. It worked out fine, and this thing is perfect for charging 3 kegs off one regulator. I have a two-port regulator, so one feeds this for serving kegs, and the other for force-carbing kegs. It was an easy way to charge 4 kegs with a two-port regulator. Just beware your nipple and gas line sizes.
