This stainless gas side fitting screws onto the gas in fitting of any Sanke coupler, and converts it to accept gas ball lock fittings. Makes it really easy to switch between a commercial keg and a ball lock home brewing keg. This is just the horizontal gas side, you will need to order P62 (beer side which goes on top) in order to make both sides of your Sankey coupler ball lock.

Includes inner sealing washer. To prevent leaks, tighten by hand firmly, and then use a wrench to tighten 1/4 of a turn. Overtightening will distort the inner sealing washer, causing leaks.

I haven't bought a commercial keg in several years. I bought a keg of Longboard Lager and bought the set to use instead of the screw on adapter version. They work great. With the screw on adapter you need a pair of pliers to remove and attach them every time. With this set, once you've installed them, you're done with the pliers. They make tapping a commercial keg as easy as tapping a corny keg.

Awesome product

Great way to switch between corny kegs and Sanke kegs a must have if you want both commercial and homebrewed beer on tap at home.

Leaky Fittings

Review by Rob on 1/4/2014

I got these with a new keg tap and tried to use them for a party. The post o-rings leaked immediately on both the gas and beer sides of the tap. Luckily I had a bin of various sized o-rings and was able to get them to work for the party with some minor leakage. Once I found the right slightly larger O.D. o-rings (at the hardware store) and some keg lube they work good with no more leaks. For the price ($30 for both)they should know better then to send them out with whatever o-rings they can find. I've bought all my other ball lock fittings from William's too so they should all work great together. If you are buying these for a party then give yourself some time to sort out any issues you may have with leaks.

Slight Leakage

Review by Richard on 1/24/2014

The O-ring doesn't seem to be quite large enough because if your gas connector isn't in exactly the correct position you can hear the very audible hiss of your precious CO2 leaking into the atmosphere. It isn't difficult to get it not leak, at least not audibly, but I suspect I'll be prematurely refilling my gas cylinder. All in all though, a decent product. I used it at a New Years party with a keg from my local brewery, hauling my tank with me. I got it to quit hissing (at least to me) but my friend's Jack Russell was convinced it was evil (I think because of a residual slight leak). Maybe get a thicker O-ring if you order?

Great product!

I've had this since it came out and have run a few commercial keg through my kegerator using it. It works great with no leakage whatsoever! I used to have the adapters where you have to screw the fittings off and then screw the hoses onto the sanke, this is much nicer. I leave the fittings attached to my sanke coupler and use it just like a ball lock keg

Q: Will both this one and the liquid side converter work on Type S Couplers?

A: Yes, they will work on all the couplers we sell.

Q: I see the Sanke couplers you sell have hose barb gas side fittings. Will this work with either of them (are the hose barbs removeable)?

A: Yes, the hose barbs come right off the inlet gas side when you unscrew the nut, and then you screw this converter onto the threads.
