I have been using three pinlock kegs. I found I needed a couple of more kegs and I got lucky and grabbed two balllocks from a friend dirt cheap. The fittings I have for the pinlock's have the threaded end where the line attachs, Is there any reason why I can't use the same type fitting on the balllocks and just unscrew the line and screw it whichever keg I'm using? I have to order the stuff online so I can't actually try them to make sure everything would work.

There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, the threaded end will allow you to easily use both styles of connectors.

Reason: damn typos!!!

Thank you, I thought that would work , but, without having the parts in my hands I couldn't be sure.
