Hello all,

I'm looking to get my 5lb co2 tank outside the keezer to make room for more kegs. I like the idea of mounting the tank to the 2x10 collar so I don't constantly knock it over. It would be a great bonus if the tank could easily be unholstered for refilling. I'm sure there are dozens of HBT users out there that have done this, and I would love to see some pics to get ideas.

Thanks!

That's sounds fantastically low budget. Picture?

I found a screw sticking out the side of one of my cabinets. I too used the string method. It works but definitely ghetto.

So are you guys just wrapping the string around the neck of the tank (just below the valve) and letting it hang?

mine actually sits on top of the fermenation fridge, which is right beside my kegerator. Once I get off my lazy ass and get the stout set up going the beergas tank will be right beside that.

Not a great photo but I built a shelf in the corner above the kegger to hold my 20 pounder. And that bud light sign is worth money ...to someone ...somewhere ...any offers?
