Description
 
New and improved version of this fitting is much easier to connect than previous stock. We've moved the locking groove closer to the ends so the poppet in your QD doesn't have to compress as much.

Maybe this is a strange idea but that's how we roll. This custom made fitting allows you to connect a liquid or gas** ball lock coupler/disconnect to both sides. It's made so that the poppet is depressed to get full flow through both lines. Why?
If you've got a multiple faucet kegerator, you're probably used to cleaning your lines one tap at a time. There are a lot of different ways to run cleaner through the lines whether it be pumping, or maybe even dispensing BLC or other cleaners through by pressurizing a spare keg. The BEST way to clean lines is to use a pump because cleaner in motion works better than static. Here's how we do it. We use a chugger pump fed from a spare pot or cooler and the output of the pump goes into the first faucet (simply clamp the hose on to the nozzle). The serving line goes to this ball lock jumper fitting, then into the serving line of the next faucet. On the outside of this faucet you can either run it back into your cleaner reservoir or continue to daisy chain to as many faucets as you have. Please note that if you have the faucet style where the piston sticks out of the front of the faucet, you can't do this because it will leak at that spot.

The beauty of this method is that you don't have to take your disconnects off the lines or take them apart for cleaning. The cleaner goes through everything. You can also use it with only one QD attached which would then just hold the poppet open for you.

This item is JUST the doubled ended jumper post fitting with two included ORINGS as seen in the picture (may be red or black). We only show the ball lock QD in the second picture to show application at a glance.

** While gas QDs do connect and engage onto this jumper, it is not guaranteed to be leak free. It seals perfectly in come cases but leaks in others. If your intended use for connecting to gas is for very short term uses such as using CO2 to flush out liquid lines (such as blowing out liquid from a jockey box coil), a small leak is not a problem. Don't trust it for long term usage.

4 of 5 Not what I expected, but well made November 23, 2022
Reviewer: Gregg John from Palmyra, VA United States  
I bought these jumper posts to facilitate cleaning the taps. I found that these restricted the movement of the cleaner through the lines more that the homemade HVAC manifold from Lowes.

The products are well made and were as described. My error does not deter me from ordering or recommending BrewHardware.

5 of 5 works perfectly November 18, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Aurora, IL United States  
appears to be good quality machined part. Fits liquid ball lock disconnects securely w/no leaks.
I use picnic taps connected with ball lock fittings for serving from my kegs at home.  
I use kegland bucket blaster to clean my kegs, and using this coupler, I can connect my tap line to the pump to run hot PBW and clear water through for EASY cleaning.

5 of 5 Great product May 20, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Cleveland  
I own 4 of these. I use them to clean, to transfer. Wouldn’t want to cellar my beers without them. I wish they had bigger holes for faster flow, but they are great.
