i'm looking for an easy alternative to buying 3 (and a 4th in the future) faucet locks.. i can lock the lid to my keezer, so i was looking around to finding a better way than having to remove the disconnects everytime.. i found this link

ball valve

if i have threaded liquid disconnects, would this be as easy as just threading this between the disconnect and the faucet line? looks like a great price for stainless..

That valve uses pipe threads, but the typical swivel nut/QD interface is a flare fitting, which I'm pretty sure is a different thread...

Cheers!

Kegworks has this shutoff valve that clearly has a swivel nut on one side, and from the description it is to be inserted between a beer line and a keg coupler, so I think the male threaded end must be a flare thread as well.

The only thing I can't find is if that's a 1/4" fitting or something else. Do all keg couplers use 1/4" flare fittings for the beer line?

Cheers!
