Right! For quick disconnects (QD) remember that black = beer, gray = gas. If you mix them up, you'll never get them off again in your lifetime. Except with a prybar and lots of brute strength. They are not interchangeable.

You'll need a gray QD if you go with the co2 charger, and you'll need a black QD to go with the beerline and picnic faucet.
