I was given a bunch of Coke pin lock kegs.
I need to see if two will fit in my Sanyo, then clean and refurbish them.
My concern is the lid doesn't have a pressure relief valve like on my ball locks.
It has a safety release molded into the lid, but you can't pull the pressure yourself.
How can you release it on this type?
I can post a picture later.

You can make a little pressure relief device to hook-up to the gas side, other than that, there really isn't a good way to do it.

I have a bunch of those. Venting is as easy as having a spare gas in connector or hitting the in poppet with a screw driver.

Man, they think of everything... even things that solve problems that barely exist!

It only took me once..................................

I did NOT know that one little poke would cover my entire kitchen, floor to ceiling, in beer. I'm still finding spots months later. NOW I know.
