Default 4 way splitter help

hey all, wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for sourcing a splitter. i'm looking to duplicate the 4 way splitter in the photo in the link- i'm trying to stay away from getting one of the bar splitters ($), i just want a simple one right off the regulator like this for an outdoor application ? help! i can't seem to find anything..

it's just a Wye splitter connected directly to the reg, then another Wye splitter coming off each "leg" of the first one

You may not like a line splitter or manifold as they are properly referred to, but what you need to be aware of is that no matter what solution you use, you need to have check valves on each C02 line.

They can be had for an array of prices depending on material and design, but they are essential if you want to prevent back flow.

Or one could just ensure that they don't fill the keg above the gas in tube.

its a different one than the traditional wye, i wasnt sure if there would be enough clearance to just use 3 wye splits?

i know i need check valves. i do like the manifolds, but this will be for a paintball tank stle regulator and i'm trying to avoid using a stand alone manifold- i already have one of them on my kegerator now.

It doesn't look (from the limited resolution of the picture) any different than the traditional wye. Plus, you can always orient the two connecting wyes so that they are out of plane from the main wye.

Yep, two Wye splitters. I've got the 2 keg kit with a single Wye splitter. I would like to get another if I could find one. Who sells just the Wye splitter?
