Systm did an episode about putting a radio frequency ID lock on a mini frigde.

Fridge Lock

It might be a bit more complicated than what you want, but it's pretty dang cool.

this is what me and my buddy were planning on doing for his keggerator on his porch. we ended up putting it in his garage so we didn't do it, but it's an effective and much cheaper solution. you could probably even get it looking pretty nice.

That is just complicated enough to make me want to build it.

So I watched the Fridge Lock vid.

I'm wondering what happens when the 9 volt battery runs out of juice? This seems like a clever idea but a bad implementation. Great information though! might just have to play with this.

If you listen carefully, he recommends you hook it up to AC using the fridge power supply or your own. He just used a battery for simplicity in making the video.

I wonder how well something like liquid nail would hold. When those things are locked you can't see they don't have screws anyway. Just an idea.

Have you tried telling your roommate that if he keeps stealing your beer you're going to kick his a$$? That worked for me when my roommate's friends were draining my kegs when I wasn't around.

id rather see him suffer with the fact that he cant just pour the tap and if he wants beer he must beg.
