For those with Pin Locks, how high above the top of the keg do the pin lock connectors stand (with the hose and all)?

I can get a keg kit that uses 22" Pin lock kegs, but I only have 23+" or 24+" without the freezer drip tray.

IIRC, you can get short pin lock connectors. Stainless jobs and $$$$ but, turn a "L" rather than the normal "wye" typr. Those don't even clear the rubber chime.

Any clue as to where I can find these? I've seen ball lock ones, but so far, haven't found in pin lock.

Surely someone must have pin locks and can measure!

2 & 1/4" or 2 & 1/8" at best above the rubber. I have threaded fittings not barbs. That's with the hose attached. Looks like it's going to be tight. There's a good bit of rubber on those keg feet-i wonder if you could shave off 1/4 - 1/2 inch.

Thanks, I appreciate it! The place I was going to order from said to add about an inch; looking at pics of the fittings, I thought that couldn't be right for pin-lock.

I know Foxx Equipment has them for pin lock. Never looked anywhere else. I just always see them in catalog and raise a brow at the price.

I just looked at their catalog. The only stainless pinlock was not 90 degrees(L); it pointed straight up! They do have ball locks in 90 degrees. But thanks for the link, anyway.

I have someone trying to find smaller pin-lock connectors (2" vs. 3"). A few places show pictures of the 2", but when called, they were, in fact, 3".

If only I could get SWMBO to give up the chest freezer for beer....
