Default corney keg disconnects

Question about the pin and ball lock connectors, I know the keg itself has a valve in it that when you remove the connectors it stay's pressurized, does the air connector have a valve built in as well, or is it neccesary to have a shutoff for each disconnect?

The connector does have a spring-loaded valve that is not supposed to open unless the connector is connected (or you press down on it).

Meaning: if you disconnect the air line from the post the flow of air will be stopped even with the knob turned on...

Though the quick disconnects do have valves, I still have shutoff valves right at the regulator for both my air lines - I guess I don't trust those little pin valves that much.

Cool, I only figured they had a ball valve in them as well. I was mostly concerned for gathering the parts for my C02 manifold as to how many to shutoffs I'd want and such
