I recently met Todd @ Keg Connection and he's an awesome guy. He mentioned they've been working 12 - 14hr days for the last month filling orders so I can understand how a simple mistake like this can happen.
BTW, if you had posted a complete picture of the assembly someone would have spotted the problem almost instantly.
