Repair Keg Rubber
I searched (honest, would I lie :D) and can't find any help. One of my kegs has the rubber loose on one side at the top. What's the best way to glue this back on so that I can lift 5G of beer without it coming loose?

Amazing GOOP. Clean the rubber & keg real good. Wipe everything off with lacquer thinner or rubbing alcohol and use a popsicle stick to work the GOOP in. Place it on it's top and put some weight on it. For the sides use a rope wrapped around it and a ~2' 2x2 or something to twist the rope up like a tourniquet so the rubber is tight to the keg. Wipe off the excess GOOP & let it sit for a week.

Any two part epoxy from Hdwe store or JB Weld will work.

I've repaired two loose rubber handles with polyurethane construction adhesive. It's inexpensive ($4), widely available, waterproof, and does not let go once bonded.
