I rather rashly bought a small used Danby fridge from a neighbor. After I bought it, I realized that the fridge door wouldn't shut if the soda keg was put on the floor; it had to stand on the riser above the compressor. This meant that the keg was too tall. So I removed the freezer compartment, which released all the refrigerant. I decided to make a virtue of necessity, and turn the fridge into an ice box. I stripped out all the mechanicals, making it very light. I needed to drill holes on the top for the lines, but the disconnects were too tall to go in the fridge, and too short to stand above it. Luckily, I found some straight vertical disconnects
. So now my keg ice box (kox?) is fully functional. Every few days I just have to swap in plastic containers full of ice that I make in my regular freezer.
Note: As far as I can tell, only Kegman sells the straight vertical disconnects, and only for the pin-style.
