Default 4" shank < 3" wall

Had to order 5 inch shanks for the new kegger. The collar is only 3 inches and I have 4 1/8 inch shanks. Should work? Nope, the 4" length includes the section of the shank that is outside the kegger; washer & faucet flange. Slightly less than 3" remained, so I couldn't attach the nut, much less the hose connector!

Trashed my wrench taking the faucets off as well. At least those are inexpensive.

[At least it's raining, so I can't do yard work instead of furthering the kegger.]

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

Yeah, too bad they always include the faucet nut and attached barb (if attached). I used 3" shanks to go through 3/4" lumber.
