Built up pressure in the keg continues to push the keg even once the CO2 is off. This will continue til your beer is flat and the keg pressure is about the same as atmospheric pressure: See first half of your post.

What's wrong with Yooper's solution? It's easily the cheapest one posted.

I agree, and if you're opening the fridge to turn on a ball valve, why not just reconnect it?

I will probably do that or an on/off valve. Maybe the first, then the other.

Edit: True. I'll probably just disconnect it. I wasn't sure how easy they were to get on and off, don't have a keg yet. Later on I might do an electronic valve. It would be easier for me to get beer and it would just be kind of cool.

If it's a little hard to get the connectors on and off, put a little keg lube on the posts.

You can also have a bowl of sanitizer to dip the ball locks in to prevent them from getting sticky between connections.
Disconnecting the ball locks is my plan for when I go out of town, etc, then just lock the fridge.

Take a picture of you urinating into a keg. Label it "My Sanitation Procedures are All Natural." Post it directly above the taps.

Should stop all but the most dedicated.

I thought everybody used that sanitation method.

I do what Yoop suggested. Every once in a while I have something on tap that I don't want the monthy poker crowd to destroy, so I just pull the QD off of the liquid post. They're not kegging homebrewers so they have no idea how to put it back on.

I'd think an in line valve would be best. If you remove the coupler you will have a fitting that may leak.

Actually I'm thinking about the Tap Locks myself. But man they are pricey for what they are. I wonder about a bicycle tire lock?
