Hope this is the right place to ask this question.
There are two things you can do. One is putting a spacer on the shanks (behind the black plastic collar thing) to push them farther away from the fridge. This could be a piece of wood or something. The other option is to use these:

I'd suggest the spacer route. If your tap is too long that it is already hitting the back wall, then it is likely top heavy. Putting the angler on there will make it way too easy to accidently open the tap. The Perlicks take very little force to open.

Might go with this option since I do have a pretty long and heavy tap handle but problem is finding out a way to drill a 13/16" hole to fit over the shank.

I took me a few months to come up with a solution, but once I did, it took about 5 hours and $35

Do you mean for the shank to go through?

My wife bought front loading washer/dryers that meant the kegerator got kicked out of the laundry room. Not to be outdone, I called the cabinet maker. He was there anyway to raise the laundry room cabinets because she measured wrong on the washer/dryer height.

Took an EdgeStar fridge that they use for their kegerators and installed the tower and other parts myself for the same price as the kit. Went this route with the idea that since I am using 2.5g kegs, I could leave a shelf in for bottled beverages. The shelf does bow quite a bit though, so I might need to replace it with something better cut to size. Even better if I could drop the shelf an inch or so in the process. Also need to get a permanent location for the secondary regulator.

On tap: a Weizenbock and Sarsparilla.




Reason: Now with working photos (thanks for the inconsistent share links, Dropbox)
