Default regulator question

ok, i just bought this little guy:



now, for my kegerator, i'm going to want to run co2 to two kegs. I want them individually regulated...ya know, so i can have one at say 30 PSI force-carbonating while the other is set for dispensing. To do that I need this guy:



my thing is, can i just buy the one pictured below and screw them together as shown in the picture above?



seems to me, that's all that's being done. i'm just adding a secondary regulator, correct?

you need an add-on regulator. It look much like the 3rd but has a connector just like your cylinder in place of the plug on the far left. Here's the micromatic product: http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-...641-AddOn.html

you DO NOT want a secondary regulator.

That is a cool item! Having wrestled with the left-hand threaded, overly tight high-pressure connections on stock regulators, I wish I'd known.
