Default sankey keg disassembly

I konw I saw this somewhere but i've been searching and reading for an hour and i give up. How do you take a sankey keg apart without cutting the top off?

I found two sources for info on this subject. They are Sanke Keg Revealed and How to Open a Sankey. That should keep you busy for awhile.


EDIT: Damn! You guys are quick!

Here's another from yours truly. Hopefully there's a little more insight there for you.

Thanks to jooz guyz I got it!! although the top is bent a bit, didn't notice till I got it all rinsed out. Wonder if I could bend it back with the right force, a little finesse and something to attach to it. If not it's my new HLT and taking apart the top was all for naught! I do need a new MLT. One with a few couplings welded in for some heating elements. hehee

I forgot about Bobby_M's video when I made this, but (FWIW) here's my version of Sanke keg disassembly:

I like yours better because the camera is obviously on a tripod or otherwise held steady.
