This universal poppet valve fits virtually all ball-lock kegs, and most pin lock kegs. Includes a stronger than normal spring for a positive seal. 1 and 1/8" long when uncompressed.
Note: You may need to cut a coil or two off the bottom of this poppet valve make this poppet fit certain applications, if you find it is too hard to press down the center poppet when installing a ball or pin lock fitting. This is easy to do with wire cutters.

Q: Is this the same poppet valve that comes with KegLand kegs?
A: The universal poppet is the same design, only the spring is slightly longer. You can trim a few coils off the universal poppet to match the original one.

Q: I recently purchased these to try. They seal good, but the spring is not strong enough to depress the connector when I hook it up. What do I do about that?
A: If you mean the spring on the poppet is too strong, and the pin on the ball lock fitting cannot press hard enough to open the poppet, you can try cutting a coil off the base of the Universal Poppet Valve to make it weaker so the pin will depress the poppet properly.

Q: What is the part number for just the replacement o-ring for the L92 universal poppet valve? I plan on ordering the poppet valve and also some additional o-rings.
A: We do not sell the O ring separately at this time.

Q: Do these work well with standard ball lock corny posts? it looks like the seal is an oring that can be replaced if needed, is this the case?
A: Yes, these work with standard ball lock corny posts. Occasionally, you may need to cut off a ring of the spring to make it a bit shorter to fit some posts. The O ring is replaceable.
One of my kegs stopped serving
One of the Williams techie types helped me troubleshoot. The poppet valve was at fault so I bought the universal valve. It was inexpensive, arrived quickly, and it worked. Nuf said.
Exactly as described - arrived on time - works as it should
Universal model that actually works
Great product! Immediately fixed a bunch of leaky poppets (otherwise known as a pain in the butt). No reason to buy any other product.
They do the job and work perfectly in my ball lock kegs!
I bought some of these in April, 2017, and they are different from the universal poppet valves I previously bought from Williams--even though the difference is not clear from the catalog. The new ones are better: they do not stick up above the surface of the plug, and seem to reduce problems I previously had with beer and gas connectors not staying on.
