Default Is it possible to swap the dip tube on pin lock kegs

I want to use the lower profile gas-in connector on the beer-out of my 3 gallon pin lock kegs. It will help me with a tight clearance problem on my cooler. Has anybody tried this or know if it can done? I'm thinking either switch the posts or switch the tubes...

The threads are the same on pinlocks so you can reverse them as long as you remember what you've done. Those low profile ones are available in both gas and beer, not that I know exactly where. I have a mix of all of them.

Thanks. I don't have a great selection around here, so it's probably cheaper to switch them than order new ones. I've only got the two small pin lock kegs so swapping won't cause me too many problems.
