Just to clarify on this one for others. I ended up buying the fridge anyways (DAR440BL from Walmart) and with only removing the right hand side door trays having a single ball lock fits with room to spare without having to take off the plastics.

Will post more pics when I finish the build but wanted (and am getting) a sweet single keg fridge for the office with plenty of room to still store food. Going to build a shelf system on the right side and will keep some cans in the door holder. Really wanted it to work this way so pretty stoked to say the least.

Alright here's the pics of my completed build. My model was the DAR440BL from Walmart for $170 brand new. Objective of the build was to have a single keg so half of the fridge could still be used for my lunch as this will be going under my desk at work.

Mission accomplished to say the least!

  • Single ball lock with center mounted Perlick 525SS
  • 5lb CO2 tank on the hump
  • Didn't have to remove door plastics, only trays on right side so still get to use the 8x can holders
  • Will fit 6x bombers on the lower part of the right hand side as well leaving two shelves above for food

Great fridge and build totally exceeding my expectations!

Finally completed my build... this thread was really helpful to me, unfortunately I got so excited about the build that I forgot to take pictures throughout the process.

Here is the result....

I ended up cutting the shelving out and a notch at the bottom of the door, sealed the exposed foam with white silicone sealant. Two corny kegs fit perfectly now.

Maybe some day I'll cut the whole thing and put in a white board.

I just did my conversion today on the Danby. Aside from the door being the biggest mother of the situation (took a few hours the day before). the rest of the job went along fairly easy. I went with the 1 3/16'' hole and used 1 inch pipe about 2 foot long. Its too long but I will see how it goes. I used the foil tape to seal up the insulation at the location of the hole. I also used small spacers to shim the plastic from the top of the fridge so the tower mounts securely. I am very pleased with the outcome. Now if only my 2 brews would finish on the primary.
