Beaker Sorry for the delay in responding to this. We just saw your question this morning. For the MFL version, what you would want to do is get a barbed swivel nut assembly for the manifold inlet and for each outlet of the manifold. These screw onto the MFL fittings and provide a barbed end on the other side that gets inserted into your gas line. You can then clamp the tubing down on the barb with a small hose clamp.
If you are using this red gas tubing which has an inner diameter of 5/16, we recommend using the 5/16 barbed swivel nut assembly. http://www.birdmanbrewing.com/barbed-swivel-nut-5-16/
If you opt to use smaller gas tubing, either ¼ or 3/16 ID, we recommend using the ¼ barbed swivel nut assembly. http://www.birdmanbrewing.com/barbed-swivel-nut-1-4/
Once you have the gas tubing connected to the manifold outlets, you then connect the keg quick disconnects at the other end of the gas tubing. If you are using the red gas tubing, you should get the same 5/16 barbed swivel nut assemblies to use for this end of your tubing as well. They screw onto the threaded 1/4 MFL gas quick disconnects. http://www.birdmanbrewing.com/ball-lock-gas-disconnect-threaded/
Hope that helps!
