Default Kegerator Complete!

It doesn't compare with some of the beauties I have seen here but my garage beer fridge is now a kegerator. My family doesn't get it. I wanted to show it to some people who would.

Thanks for all the ideas.

Tony

Actually those are Coke 5 gallon pinlocks that I converter to ball lock. The Coke ones are 3 inches shorter and fit better. They are also easier to get. I have 4 so far.

Yeah that has me a little worried too. We have been practicing grabbing both handles at the same time. So far so good but I may connect them so they always open together.

on my fridge i had to go with a short tap handle because the long ones actually rested against the freezer and it was causing a small leak... your setup looks awesome! Great job!

So simple. Problem solved.

That's a good idea. I will have to figure that out.

secure a bar or some sort on the freezer door so it comes in contact with the refrigerator door. Set it up so the refrigerator door can be opened without the freezer door opening, but when the freezer opens, both doors will open.
