Default tap handles

I am trying to find some nice handles for my perls.

they need to be 3 - 4 " tall max, as the freezer door will hit them otherwise. I do not want any 'brand' beer handles, just something unique and short.
Maybe a Canadian hockey team? or anything cool...

I am having no luck finding something to fit this bill....

anyone?

Check out Micromatic.com I use their european style tap handles for all of mine. They're simple, yet very nice.

There are a few vendors here who make custom taphandles, me included. Check out Spitfire for some really cool acrylic ones.

Click here to see some of my exotic wood ones.

I zip tied my freezer door to the fridge door so they both open together. I don't get in there enough to worry about the freezer being open. That way I can use taller tap handles.

I work in a nest of homebrewers. One of the guys is having handles custom turned by one of his neighbors for a few bucks.

I have been thinking about what all could be use for tap handles.

Started thinking about shifter nobs.

This one seems to be a fav of mine. You just need to fab up a shaft with some copper tubing. Adding the slight forward bend required.



How awesome would it be to have this molded grip on a perlick?
