To hold the poppit in position, you'll need to use a hack saw to cut off a piece of the green protruding part that the first green part (that you took off) screws into. I took off about a quarter inch. It depends on how far you screw the post down, so maybe saw off a little bit at a time to get it right. Works great, you don't need a coupling or washers. Just $7 for the Flow-Master 56HD and the cost of the post.

Just used mine again last night, so easy, so cheap, so effective. I've got the same setup as the one you did.

I just finished something similar using a 3/8" compression to 1/2" MIP and then 1/2" FIP to 1/2" barb attached to a cheap (~$10) water pump. This fits a pin lock post fine, my main problem was getting the poppet to seal correctly which worked itself out using the compression ring from the original fitting to hold the poppet in place. ~$25 in parts (hardware, tubing, pump) and I have a much easier beer line cleaner than filling a keg and wasting CO2.

Greetings. I have read the incredible forum regarding building your own pressure system to clean beer keg lines using a handheld pump sprayer. I have a Danby one line kegerator with American sanke tap. I currently have the gravity bottle line cleaner that is hooked up to the spout. I am looking to build a pressure line cleaner and need to know if anyone knows the name or where to buy or how to build an adapter from the pressure sprayer to the American coupler? Thanks. Pics and specifics would be appreciated.

Did anyone mention that this thing is really helpful for sanitizing a beer gun before use, and for running cleaner and water through it afterwards? Because it is.

I use it all the time to clean and sanitize my beer gun.
I also use it to clean my keg in and out posts so I don't have to disassemble them every time I clean a keg

Besides the star San spray bottle, this has to be without a doubt the most useful DIY gadget I ever put together... Ever. It's saved so much co2, I clean beer lines with LLC after every keg kicks because its so easy with this thing and now I can sanitize my new beer gun. Great build.

Does it have to be a Firestone post? I tried this with a AEB (Cornelius, Spartan and Super Champion) post and I cant get it to fit onto the coupler.
