Default What is the deal with keg lid feet?

So, apparently they are no longer available? I have not checked everywhere but some places say they are discontinued and others say they have been out of stock for about a year.

Are they necessary to get a good seal? I have one keg that is missing one. The little gray plastic feet on the bales of the corny keg lid. Does the lid not seat as well without them? Would I be better off removing the one that is there for equal pressure?


Am I keg newb or what?

One of my lids is missing the little rubber feet and it still works fine once I put pressure in the keg.

so it is missing both then? That was my thought, remove the one still there and have equal pressure...

FWIW, I have one that's missing a single foot. It works just fine.

I just jam a dime underneath the missing foot. After pressurizing, I don't think they matter anyway.
