Default Low-profile pinlock Disconnects

Just received the jackpot of free kegging equipment from my home brewing mentor: 10 pin locks, dual gauge regulator, and a ton of fittings. I now have 13 kegs! Guess I'll have to get to work on that pipeline. Anyhow, amongst the fittings I noticed one set of these which seem to be low profile pin-lock connectors, which I've never seen before. Has anyone else seen these? I'd like to buy another set for an upcoming mini fridge kegerator project.

I too would be really interested in finding some of these low profile pin lock connectors. Anyone know anything about them?

I have seen them, they were standard black and red ones. I don't know if they are made anymore. If you convert them to ball lock and use the ball lock connector it saves about 1-1.5".

They sell "short" pin lock disconnects here, according to the description should save you just over half an inch over normal pin lock disconnects:

So I ended up ordering these from CHI Company. Had read some mixed reviews of this seller on HBT so I was hesitant but they were the only place I could find low-profile pin lock quick disconnects, and the space savings were important to me. CHI Company came through -- they actually called me to offer a cheaper shipping option than I was able to get through the site (saving me $7), they shipped quickly and I received everything I ordered. Not questioning other's experiences with them but I was pleased with their service and would order from them again if I end up needing more of these parts.

I've also gotten some from www.apexbrewwares.com . Might have to call him to double check but the last ones I got were short.

Normal ones are 3" tall, their short ones say they are 2 5/16" tall. That's a savings of 11/16" only, not the 1.5" mentioned. Now that you've got them - are they really 2 5/16" tall? I need exactly 1.5" shorter.
