If you like serving out of commercial kegs but prefer the ease of using ball lock fittings in your draft system, this adapter is for you. Instead of buying additional keg couplers and beer thread to ball lock adapters, you can use this tapping head to go straight from sanke keg to ball lock. To install, remove the keg spear, place the gasket on the keg ferrule with the beaded side facing up, attach the silicone dip tube and place the tapping head on the ferrule, then secure with the 2" tri-clamp.

Be sure to always depressurize the keg before removing the tapping head.


  • Ball Lock Post Lid
  • 2" tri-clamp
  • Single-side beaded tri-clamp gasket
  • 60 cm silicone dip tube (23.6")
  • Red 2.5 bar PRV (36 psi)

Can the two posts and the PRV all be swapped around to different positions? Are they all attached with the same thread size?
Daniel Mayfield on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately not. The threading for all of the pieces is different and not interchangeable.
Replacement gaskets available?
Thomas McGloine on Mar 30, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have found you have to look for is a 2” tc single side, or half gasket. The regular one doesn’t work since they have an alignment ring on both sides. The half, or single side gaskets have the ring on one side and the other side is flat. The flat side goes on the keg and one with the ring goes on the adapter.
How does the plastic dip hose connect? Can it be replaced with a corny-style stainless dip tube?
Jay Eychaner on Jun 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The plastic hose connects to the bottom of the cap with a hose barb fitting. It would be possible to adapt it to use a steel dip tube if you use a small amount of tubing to couple from the barb to the stainless dip tube. You may also need to cut your dip tube a little short to fit perfectly.

Performs as described
Very happy with this. Well made and should last a lifetime. It should however, come with a floating dip tube ball, even if it's at a higher price. Also the option to purchase extra gaskets would be helpful.

One of those hmm... finds
It works, I couldn't have easily fabricated it's equivalent , the pickup tube seemed small but it works too. No clog.

Since adapting corny kegs my sankes have been collecting dust. This thing saved the serving career of a plastic pubkeg. They're fragile finicky things come cleaning time. Now it's modified, together and will stay that way and get used.
