Default dumb shank question

wanted to use a beer tower but beer line run wwere to long so i'm just going to put a shank and faucet on my fridge door and hook up to a soda keg. Question when you buy the shank how do i hook the hose up to the back of it. I know one end of the tube will have a ball lock disc. What do i need on the other end to hook up to the shank, A tail peice /wing nut just a hose clamp ? Should i buy a beer assembly line ? Does the tail piece just fit into the shank and use a nut to hold it in and the use a tube and a hose clamp

Not sure of your exact question. I like these shanks because their complete. Just slap a beer line and clamp on one end, and screw in your tap on the other.

Just hook your beer line up to this:

Tailpiece
Beer Nut
Washer
Hose Clamp

Or the kit FTW

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

Sorry, I read the title of this thread as "dumb skank question" and thought it was about something else entirely....
