Default Thread question Stainless Coil

Ok so this may be a dumb question.

Ive been researching making a Jockey Box and have decided to go with the 50' stainless steel coil option. I was looking on NYbrewsupply and noticed that the coils are classified as "right hand" or "left hand". I was under the impression that this meant how the threads screw on? Right being the normal way. Or does this have to do with the faucet pouring the beer out of the box? I think I may have confused myself. Im just wondering why anyone would want to get a left hand system if this is true?

I just wanted to make sure before I ordered anything seeing as how its quite and investment for them. Thanks for the help!

I think the left and right refers to the direction the coil is wound. If you had two coils in a box you'd typically want one left and one right to accommodate tap placement.

Go to this link.

The 3rd picture shows the difference between a left and right hand coil. It's so you can put 2 taps in the same cooler. One on the left and one on the right.

Happy brewing.:

Thanks for the feed back that clears things up! I was going to make a 3 tap box so I guess I will go with two right hands and one left.
