Having castors on the kegerator, I do move it from time to time, so I had to have a mount of some sort to keep the co2 tank upright.

My Keezer is about 98% done and the tank bracket is perfect. Here are some pics.

Is your regulator mounted inside?

I was going to ask the same thing.

Be careful with that set up--you've got A LOT of pressure running through that hose BEFORE the regulator- big blow out risk!

The regulator is on the inside. The hose is rated to 3000psi. I just did not want to buy another regulator to step down the pressure to do it again after it reached the inside.

Default Yeah...

Cool... that's what I figured you had done. I'll be doing something similar eventually. I want regulators for each drop. Then I can Force Carb and Maintain off the same tank.

Realize this is old but wondering where you (or anyone else) got the mount from? Looking to do the same thing to mine. Also, does it hold it well?
