Default Adapter from hose to beer faucet

Hi All:

I am a new member here and have decided to start home brewing after a 20 some year hiatus. I basically played around some when i was about 20 and haven't gotten back to it until now.
I have a big overtime check coming and have decided to jump back in. I intend to order a dual cornelius keg system for storage, dispension of my beer.
Here is my question. The dual keg system I am looking at comes with 3/16 hose and picnic taps, but I want to mount faucet taps on the front of the fridge. From looking at the pics it looks like I will need some sort of adapter from the hose to the faucets but I have been unable to find it by searching on line for it. I have found adapters to mount the faucet directly to the keg, but that does not seem to be what I am looking for. I want to attach the output hose from the keg to the faucet on the fridge. I haven't made any purchases yet, so I want to try to get it right, and keep the costs reasonable.
I appreciate any help you guys can give me to get me pointed in the right direction.

Cheers

What you need are some shanks, of an appropriate length to install in your fridge door. They are widely available, here are some examples.

Thank you Blind Lemon! That is exactly what I need. In two days of various googling and forum reading I never came across that item. Bad key words I guess. I kept searching for "adapter"

Cheers

The keg setup are sold with those already.
Homebrew Deluxe - 2 Tap System :: Midwest Supplies Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies
2 Faucet Refrigerator Conversion Kit, 2 kegs

Both of these companies would be happy to upgrade you to a higher quality faucet (Like Perlick) with a simple phone call.

Be sure to pick up a faucet wrench too, they are only a few bucks and will make your life a lot easier. And like Arkador suggests, upgrading to forward sealing faucets (which don't stick!) is something you definitely won't regret.

BTW, welcome back to the hobby! I also put my brewing hobby on hold for a few decades, and was incredibly pleased to see how much the homebrew scene had grown over the years.
