I'm still a complete kegging n00b. I don't even have all the equipment yet, but I'm working on it. I have 4 cornies with those quick-connect ball-lock males for the in and out ports. OTOH, I bought a 2-tap tower from AHS, and the tubing coming from the taps terminates with threaded female connectors. I was looking at a conversion tutorial @ kegkits.com, and they said to cut them off and attach the ball-lock connectors. Is this correct?

Yes, unless you want to switch between corny and sanke kegs all you need are the ball lock QDs.

If your tower came like mine, you do want to cut those off. I did that and then just slid the tubing over the barbed disconnect. I have clamps on them also to help stand up to the pressure...

That's pretty much exactly the same as my process was
