I purchased two of the 6" Micromatic BOD Tap Handles and they arrived and were installed on my new Tap Faucets. One of the handles was stripped when I received it and I called Micromatic immediately. They replaced the damaged handle, but what I have found is that they strip out very easily as they are only plastic threads.
Now many may say that you need to be gentle with the handles, but you still need to secure them so they do not loosen on you as you use them. I was able to get about one kegs worth of pours from the original handle and then it went bad. I removed it to inspect the threads and it is apparent that the handle is not designed for long term usage.
I really like the handles and I am not bad mouthing the company, but they do not hold up as they should. I notified them of my situation, but have not had any response from them since.
I think they need to install a metal nut in the handle that will allow it to be secured properly without the fear of stripping.
This has been my experience with the BOD Handle. Has anyone else out there experienced any difficulty with theirs?
PS: I realize you get what you pay for and the handles were not very pricey, but I did expect better longevity of the product.
