Quck Disconnects and Gas Hose Size Difference
I am putting the final touches on the kegerator (keezer) and just got the CO2 tank. I noticed that when I placed the (red) gas hose on the quick disconnect, it went on without any pressure at all really - the QD is 1/4 and the hose is 5/16.
Do I need to get an adapter to make this fit more secure or should i just tighten down a clamp really tight and leave it?
I have a clamp for it, this hose:
Hose, Gas, Red, 5/16 ID, 9/16 OD, Per Foot
and this quick disconnect:
Disconnects (Set of 2) for IN (GAS) and OUT (liquid) Pin Lock 1/4"Barb
Now i see that they sell them with the 5/16ths connection that I really needed.
So whatcha think? Leave the tight clamp on there or is there an adapter that I can/should purchase?
