This pic shows the white board after it was cut.

DeNomad, I finally found the fridge at the Winterburn Costco, same model. I picked one up today, but am just going to ensure it works fully before I start destroying it. I think I'm in the same boat as the others though where the door does not have screws. I'll have to see if someone I know has a dremel or something to help get it off.

I am able to get a single ball lock keg in this fridge without any modifications to the door. the only thing I had to do was remove the removable shelving from the opening side of the door. 1 keg fits in just fine.

On that note, has anyone with this fridge been able to get a ball lock keg + 1 commercial sixth keg in there? would that fit? a ball lock has 8.5" diameter and according to a web resource a sixth keg has a 9.25" diameter.

how did you measure the inner dimensions of the fridge with such accuracy?

Yes, thousands of an inch is pretty precise...

If you only put one ball lock in there you would still have half of the fridge space for other stuff. Ive had it for some time now and I can honestly say its an awesome fridge.

Cheers!
how much wiggle room do you have with one ball lock and one pin lock? I am thinking about putting in a ball lock and a sixth commercial keg. the ball lock is 8.5" diameter and from what I gather online the sixth is 9.25" diameter. just .25 more than a pin lock do you think there is enough room in there for what I am trying to do?

I used a tape measure and a pair of calipers. Measured the width of the outside, then calipers on the wall thickness. Inner width = Outside width - 2*thickness. I forget how I measured the length but I likely did something similar. The gray dimensions are reference dimensions calculated by the CAD program.

My recommendation is to cut out circles of cardboard of the correct diameter and toss them in there, see what you think. Be aware of the plastic tabs where the shelves sit since that is the tightest part of the fridge. Mark 3/4" away from the side wall, that is where the plastic tabs extend too.

Off the top of my head...
1 ball lock + 1 pin lock: Probably would need to cut out the bits of plastic the shelves sit on to make this work. 2 ball locks are very tight already.

1 ball lock + 1 commercial keg: Definitely need to cut out the bits of plastic the shelves sit on. No guarantee here. Kinda doubt it.

I just purchased this model, but can't seem to find any screws along the door. Pulled the gasket back, but zero screws. Any suggestions?

Danby now glues the shelving to the door and insulating foam. You have to cut around with a dremel or just cut the shelving out.
