Default ball lock cornie

i recently got my hands on free cornie kegs, as money is a bit on the tight side especially with the holidays i went and ordered a flexi-tap with disconnect. however when i went to fit this to the ball lock it goes on but doesnt click, are their different types of ball locks for cornies?????????????

First, are you sure its all ball lock and not pin lock?
Second, are you connecting to the right side : CO2 - grey to the "in" and fluid-black to the "out".

oh yeah - pictures would help.

It depends on if the gas charger attaches to the threads or the pin lock post itself. As far as I know, if it attaches to the threads, it should be fine. If it attaches to the post itself, you might have to rig up some sort of ball lock to pin lock adapter. It looks like the flexitap would be easy to change to pin lock as long as you have a pin lock post to attach it to.
