Default Corny Keg Height Question

I saw in another post that the height of the Corny keg is 23"s. My beer fridge is 23 1/2 inches UGGGGG haha

Sooo, can anyone confirm that it is for sure 23" high...

If it is 23", is the 1/2" enough to make all the connections on top? It looks as though the hoses can be laid to the side through the openings but I didn't know if anything would stick up past 23 1/2"

I would love to get one of the deals at kegconnection but dunno if I'll have enough room

Also, my little fridge has the little "fake" freezer thingy's.. basically just a door and metal housing. That would also have to be removed for the Corny to fit...

anyone have experience with this?

Thanks!

My ball locks are 25 inches without connects. Pin lock are usually shorter, if you can find them.

yeah 23" sounds too short to me for a corny. I think I needed 26" on my ball lock kegs, including the disconnect and the tubing coming off the disconnect at a 45' angle.

Keg Connection has pin locks in stock
http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=392
They are 22" tall, 9" wide.
Keep in mind, the pin lock disconnect is taller than a ball lock disconnect.
I'd suggest you contact Keg Connection, and ask them to measure the height of a pin lock w/ the disconnect attached.
Then you'll still need a little clearance to move the keg in and out of the fridge.
Easy for me to say, but keep an eye out for a bigger used fridge is another alternative.
good luck
