Default Tap handle angle adapter...

Isn't there some type of adapter so you can use a long handled tap on a fridge door keezer? Seems like I remember one that reduced the backward angle that the handle sits at.

How handy are you?

Two cheaper options:
1. Get a piece of 3/8"-16 threaded rod and a 3/8-16 threaded rod connector. Put nuts on each end of the rod and bend it. One end of rod goes into the coupler on the faucet, the tap screws into the other end. Maybe cover the exposed rod with some electrical tape or a small bit of aluminum foil to dress it up a bit.

2. You may be able to get a 3/8"-16 threaded rod coupler, insert a 3/8" bolt on each end so that you don't wreck the threads, and bend it. Bending may take some heat, or clamping the coupler in a vise and beating the crap out of it with a hammer. This may not actually be possible, but it would probably look nicer than the rod solution.

Couplers are sometimes hard to find, in the past I've found them living with the threaded rod in the drop ceiling aisle. Buy a few extra couplers, drill out some random items, jam the coupler in and you have a new tap.
