Default Attatching a keg Line to a Vent-Matic Faucet

Is there a cheap way to attatch a line from a corny keg directly to a vent-matic or perlick faucet without using a shank? Im trying to keep the cost down on a DIY tower and If I can avoid the elbow shank purchase it will help alot.Thanks

There's really no way to attach a faucet to any surface without a shank, nevermind the tubing. The cheapest way is to get a shank with an integrated hose barb.. See superprod.com

Yah, looks like im gonna have to pony up for the elbow shanks anyways I dont think 2 3" shanks will fit in a 3" tower.
