That's what I'm using in my tower build. They work great!
I didn't have room inside my tower for a beer nut and tail piece, so I had to have the welded barb on the shanks.

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!
