Default co2 2 or 3 way distribution splitter

Wondering if anyone has ever built/fab'd/made/etc. a distributer to split off co2 lines off of the co2 regulator or wherever to run multilple kegs off of 1 tank. i am sure there is a way because it seems like lowes/home depot has all the necessary components but i am not the problem solving type.

They have the two way splitters for CO2, only a couple of bucks each. The only downside is you have to keep the same pressure on both kegs.

I little much, but the check valves are important to me. I found this one to be one of the more affordable ones to buy since I didn't want to mess with making one:

Harbor Freight sells a solid brass coupler cross for $2.99 (item 93649) that has four 1/4" female NPT ports and a 7 piece hose repair kit (item 94501) for 6.99 that has brass 1/4 NPT fittings with 1/4" barbs with stainless hose clamps. Buy 2 of the hose repair kits and all your fittings are taken care of to run 3 kegs. Buy a 1/4" NPT plug at Lowes or HD for the other port if you only want to run 2 kegs.

Up to you, but like Greg, I wouldn't do it without a check valve for each keg. The shut-off valves from Keg Connections have built in check valves. Well worth the extra bucks.
