Wow that's too bad. I have 2 and they work perfectly. Love 'em.

I am not drunk! I am by nature a loud, friendly, clumsy person!

Hi, First post here.

I have a Perlick 525SS and am looking to add a second tap handle.

I was considering this 545PC-from experience, does the PC mean chrome plated brass? I was wondering if there was a 545SS?

Thanks in advance!

As far as I know, there is no 545SS. From my contact at Perlick, I know that they did an initial run of them that did not meet Perlick's standards. I am unsure if they ever got a successful run produced, but I never heard of one.

Also to follow up on earlier posts: I still use the 545PC's thru the wall of my kegerator with great results. I still cannot get them to work with my kitchen taps, which pour from a box kept cold by a blower, without excessive foam. I think these are a great option for keezers, but I don't think I'd recommend them for anyone pouring from a tower or other setup.
