#1 Make sure the post's match the disconnects. The gas side is different than the liquid side. Gas side will usually have notches or lines around the base. It also may be as simple as needing to lube the o-ring, they can get sticky if left dry. I actually put a small amount of lube around the inside of the disconnect as well.

try using keg lube on the o-rings.
