I have the 2 keg basic kit
from kegconnection. They use some sort of worm clamps that prevent them from being loosened.
Any ideas are welcome.
I see you have flare fittings for the gas QD's- all you need is a male flare fitting w/ a barbed end (about $2-3 at the LHBS), a small nylon flare washer, a length of tubing that fits over the post on Derrin's rig, and a couple small worm-drive hose clamps- 1 for the barb and one for clamping onto the blowoff post. That's what I've used.
A basic hose clamp will hold fine for the transfer- I use 3-5 psi and sometimes run a filter inline. it works great. I'd also recommend getting a hose and beer QD for the racking arm for a totally closed transfer system. I recently came into quite a bit of 1/4" silicone tubing, and don't even use the hose clamps anymore.
Did I mention I LOVE this thing?
