how to tell gas post vs liquid post
 
Just got a bunch of dirty ball locks and did something dumb. I took off all the posts/tubes disassembled to soak in cleaner and now cant really tell a difference in gas vs liquid. Anyone got a cheat sheet

Gas posts have little horizontal nicks in the base.

Not all star shaped posts are gas, some are liquid side. The notches are the identifier.

Hmm I didn't know that! On one of my kegs the gas is star shaped, I figured that would apply across the board
