Just received the freezer from homedespot, and I can't squeeze 4 on the floor. Can I try to bend a dent into the side of the hump without riskinga coolantl ine?

I can fit 4 US made kegs in my GE, my German made won't fit.
It will be a tight fit and a little force is required.

So no one has risked whacking the side of the hump with a sledge and a block of wood?

I'm pretty sure there are coolant lines in the hump. Most freezers are constructed similarly, and my old Gibson has them there. You can see the cooling areas after you plug it in for a while. Those areas are frosty. Probably easier to see (and feel) on white plastic than the aluminum ones.

Ball lock. I planned to put 4 on the floor and a 3g keg on the hump.

I am in the same boat. Guess I need to build a taller collar.

Are you sure they're not converted pin locks to ball locks? What is the diameter of the kegs?

4 fit, just needs a bit of elbow grease. I was petrified the first time I put them in there but the walls do have some flex.
