Default Vertical height difference of connetcted ball lock vs pin lock keg??

I have limited height in my fridge. What is the difference in height for a ball lock connected to CO2 tank vs. a pin lock keg connected? I heard the pin lock is a taller connection but I was curious how much.

Ball lock kegs are also taller than pin lock kegs... just an FYI.

If you need it really short you can go pinlock keg, but with the ball lock conversion posts. It's 23.5" for the pinlock keg with the conversion posts with a mfl barb on the QD, you can probably shave another .5" off if you go with the barb QD.
