FYI, you can get a very similar effect using 1/4" OD polyethylene tubing that is sold as ice maker water supply line. You can buy the tubing at most any hardware store, Home Depot etc. It's very cheap at about $3 for a 25 ft coil. The tubing is semi-rigid which makes it easy to install and also easy to remove for cleaning purposes. Slip it into the dip tube and trim the ends flush with a sharp utility knife. Works like a champ.

I bought these and some of these "Sticks" would not go inside the dip tube, some did some did not.

I only use them when I'm gonna take my keg some where and I'm using a short party tap. With my 10ft 3/16 beer lines at serving temp I'm fine with out them. But with the 3' party tap the beer simply comes out to fast and foams. One or two of the sticks in the diptube will reduce the speed of the beer coming out of the tap, therefore reducing the foam. 10-12 psi with a party tap is easily done with these....

Brilliant. And the plastic is food grade.
