Hi all, I know this has been covered a dozen times... this for me was an issue because I keep seeing different answers. My beer fridge is exactly 27" (inside dimension) tall. Will it be capable of adequately holding a ball lock keg w/ fittings in hoses? Just hoping for a general consensus before I upset the wife by spending more money. Thanks!

Yes it should fit fine. The disconnects stick up at most 3/4" from the keg top ( 25"). So you should be fine even with the beverage hose and clamp

Borrowed my buddies dual ball lock system... they both fit in there fine with the co2 bottle on the hump. However, I think pin locks would give me enough clearance to have a shelf for bottles as well.
