Awesome! Thanks for the pic!

Tragedy struck the Homebrewed Handles Testing/Manufacturing facility (my garage ) today.....something fell off the top storage shelf and knocked one of my tap handles forward. I lost 5 gallons of a recently brewed pale ale. Guess I know what I'm doing this weekend! BREWDAY!!

Thanks for the support everyone! It's been a hot few weeks in the shop, but we've been cranking out tap handles!

Working on something special, and hopefully a new website up and running soon!

This may have been asked already, I didnt read the whole thread.
I really like the look of these handles but have to ask about the angle.

I have only really been able to use the classic short black handle just due to the taller ones hitting the fridge/freezer door.
I even bought some of those angle corrector things which help but not enough. I was getting leaks all the time and was never really happy with the look, since the handles I had were so close. This is, I guess, because perlick faucets have a big angle to them. Does this product get around that or not?

If I understand correctly, you're worried about the backwards angle of the taps? Sounds like you've had issues with longer taps not being able to be pushed to the full "close" position?

To be completely honest, I havent personally tested these handles in that particular situation...maybe one of my customers can chime in? I know that several have mounted these on walls, etc....wonder if they're using Perlicks or not. I'll see if I can find some photos and see if I can tell if they're perlicks.

These look like Perlick's, right?

Looks like there's a decent gap between the back of the handle and the freezer door.

Those are mine and they're 525's. I did have to use anglers on them, but it isn't the handles fault. I have to use them with any handle longer than the stubby black ones that you can get with the faucets.

Just doing some thread consolidation here.

These new handles are only 5" tall, and 2.5" wide. They use the same "tobacco size" card as our narrow Medium sized handles.
