Default Tower shank elbow with long tailpiece locate

Could one of you help me out finding a place that sells these. I have seen them on complete tower assemblies but never for individual sale. They are a tower shank elbow with a 90 degree tailpiece but the metal tailpiece extends down 6"-8" down through the tower. I'm building a new kegerator and it would be perfect for the narrow space that I would like.

I'll have two of them after Christmas when I rebuild my kegerator if the ones with the shorter elbow won't work.

Ebay, Beverage Factory, just about anywhere that sells towers has them.

Cheers

They all have the short elbow fittings but not the long ones. Can you point me to one?

I just did a search for tower shank elbow long, and came with nothing helpful, I looked at 10 to 12 sites, sorry.

Where ever you saw them on a complete tower assemblies is where I would start asking if they can sell you the shanks only.

Cheers

i know they make them with long elbow pieces but i havent seen them in any of the normal online stores. A friend of mine has a tower that the shank runs the entire length of the tower. Good luck on your search

some of them have a 90 that fits the shank via a compression nut. If you get that type you could probably get Stainless Accessories (the vendor) to custom bend some stainless for you.
