Default Pin Lock Relief Valve

Is there a way to bleed off pressure through a pin lock relief valve or do I have to do it through the inlet post? I wasn't sure if there was some kind of tool to do it.

if you do not have a valve in the lid you need to bleed it through the co2 post. use a screw driver or a knife and press the center of the post to put down on the spring.

I've seen the product in the link, but they say it's for bleeding off on a post, not the relief valve, or am I reading it wrong?

It just presses the poppet down to release co2 from the in post.

switch the liquid-out hose to the gas-in post and bleed thru your tap, swap back and enjoy!

Brilliant. That's not too much wear and tear on the faucet?

What - from beer and CO2? You're talking about the two things that the faucet is built to handle. I think it'll be ok

It'd work, but honestly that's a lot more involved than just pressing down on the In poppet...


Cheers!
