$4.43 for shipping $30 worth of o-rings. Shipping took 1-day. NJ to PA.

McMaster is very fast and cheap. They must have some special deal with UPS.

Default Pin Lock Rings

Thanks for the info... The o-ring models listed work perfect on our ball lock kegs...

We just scored a good deal on 40 ball lock kegs.
Pretty sure all of them will have to be rebuilt.

Which o-rings work best for the Pin Lock posts?

I buy o-rings from our local bearing suppliers. McMaster refuses to ship to South Africa and our local home brewing shops are a rip-off they charge $15 for s kit consisting of 2x post rings and 1 lid ring.

I'm glad you asked. I've been meaning to post an update. I got my order of o-rings in a couple days ago and had ordered the slightly larger thickness for the pin lock post ring. I found that the slightly larger thickness (0.139", p/n: AS568A-205) is actually too big to fit in the post groove! Because the ring thickness is a couple thous too large, the ring doesn't actually fit inside the groove, making it impossible to fit the QD onto the post. I'm curious to see if the ring with a slightly smaller ID (p/n: AS568A-204) would force the ring into the groove better, but I'm not going to be trying this in the near future.

At this time, I recommend going with the listed Post ring size for Pin Lock posts.
Post O-rings Buna-N $2.15/100 - 9452K23 (liquid post)
Post O-rings Silicone $10.71/100 - 9396K24 (gas post)

Just wanted to add my thanks for this thread! I just placed an order for all of the O-rings (silicone all around -except for the beer posts -those got buna) for my kegs, and will have quite a few to put in my parts bins (grin -I HATE needing an O-ring and not having it).

pretty fast service! I got 'em in 2 days. Wow it would be great if everyone offered service like that! Their seals are a really great bargain -a lot of their other stuff seems a bit high, but if (when) I'm in a pinch, I'll gladly pay a bit more for fast service. Can't believe the number of different O-rings/seals they offer! I think I'll stock up on some other ones for other things I have to re-seal from time to time.

I received the my order based on this list. Thanks for the info.

I went to take my keg apart and I didn't have a new ring for the poppet valve (ball lock).
Anyone know what it is? Or is this different depending on manufacture?

This looks like mine:

Can't say what o-ring that is, but B&S has several different poppets available. You could see if they have one that makes a better seal for you. Worked for me!

It depends on what style of keg you have. If you're just trying to replace the little ring on it, maybe someone else can chime in. If you want to go clean with a new poppet, there are several different versions at MidwestSupplies.
