Default Perlicks

From Keg Connection:

WE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING ISSUES WITH THE FIT OF THE PERLICK 525SS AND 575SS TO SHANKS. THE 525PC FAUCETS FIT ALL SHANKS WELL, BUT DUE TO THIS MANUFACTURING ERROR, WE WILL BE REMOVING THE 525SS AND 575SS FROM OUR SITE UNTIL PERLICK RESOLVES THIS.

So what can I do in the mean time to finish off my keezer?

You could also try getting used ones off the net. Ones like mine that don't have that problem.

Having Perlicks are worth the wait IMO.

Any ideas if I just bought one. Leaks like a sieve around the collar. Bought it yesterday from Northern Brewer.

Seems like the options are to keep exchanging the faucet until you get one that mates with your shank well, double up the o-ring, or file down the alignment teeth. There are a bunch of threads about this issue. You might find this one helpful-

Or get a ss shank, I only had problems with 1 out of 3. I just needed to rock it back and forth while I tightened the shank thread.

We haven't had any problems with our 525SS or 575SS and our stainless shanks. I know some people have reported problems on the board here, but they seem to be the exception, at least based on our experience. The Perlick rep told me they will stand by their product and replace any defective product.

Hopefully nothing ... that's what I bought, after talking to the guys at Keg Connection ... they are the chrome plated brass version, and since that's what the shanks and other parts of the system are (unless you buy an all-SS setup) I don't see why they wouldn't be just fine ...
