yeah, I wasn't gonna keep the gas-in line connected. I was just gonna attach them to an already charged keg. It's mostly so I can pull pints from kegs in queue while waiting for space to free up in the kegerator.

They have a standard faucet adapter that replaces the barb on Ur Liquid QD. That's what I use. I think it comes with the faucet if U buy it. Mine did. Any place that sells kegging EQ should carry it. Hope this helps.

I made up a few direct faucets by putting a 3" piece of 1/4" ID polyethylene tubing between the beer out QD and a picnic faucet. Extra points for dropping a few epoxy mixing cores down into your dip tube if you plan to dispense the whole keg that way.
