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.

5 of 5 Super handy September 10, 2019
Reviewer: Brock from Seattle, WA  
These things are super handy. I use them all the time to rinse and drain jumper hoses and picnic taps, and to purge jumper hoses with CO2 before transferring.

5 of 5 Sparkling Clean Draft Lines August 24, 2019
Reviewer: PZ from New York, NY United States  
This little gizmo really made cleaning my draft lines faster and more thorough, and I am able to use the same camlock-equiped hoses I use for all my brewing tasks. I have three lines so I am using a MALE CAMLOCK TO BALL LOCK KEG POST on line #1 DQ, some silicon tubing connecting faucets #1 and #2 and the QD umper post between #2 and #3. The cleaner/rinse water exits faucet #3. A garden sprayer works fine but a pump is better. If you have Intertap faucets you can take use the growler filler spout attachment to make the tubing connections more secure. Bobby does it again!

2 of 5 Was excited, but ultimately dissapointed August 11, 2019
Reviewer: Doug Neufeldt from Roselle, IL United States  
Was excited to find this, and it's a great idea, but it only works with no more than 2 taps....and I have a 4 tap system. There isn't any flow if you try to use 2 of them for a 3 or 4 tap system. I have a 550 GPH pump, and daisy chained all 4 taps together and turned it on....no flow...tried it with 3 taps, still no flow...it worked adequately if I just used 2 taps, but no more than that. Anything more than 2 and the holes are just to small. I am going to put them on a drill press and open it up to a nearly full bore, which should work then, and how they should redesign it to work better.

5 of 5 Looking for stock June 14, 2019
Reviewer: Carlos from Costa Rica  
This isn't a review, rather an inquiry when this item will be back in stock. Been checking in periodically over the last year, but it always seems to be out of stock. Thanks!
