When I put my keg into the keezer I always put the out facing one side and the in facing the other. So when I open it I always know which side is which.

Kegged/Bottled: Boston Lager Clone, Crimson Ale, Guiness Draught Clone, Kilt Warmer Scotch Ale, BBB Blonde Ale, Oberon Clone Pt. 1,000

On one of the rubber handles, I wrapped red electrical tape and sharpied it with "CO2". On the other is green tape with "Beer" on it. And yes, I have pin-locks. I just need it to be really, really clear!

I used a paint marker on mine.

I saw this at NHC 2008 and liked it enough to go get some colored electrical tape. It works for these old eyes.

At least one of mine has no markings.
Industrial type paint pen-I and O.
Loads quicker than tape.

The most fool (and beer) proof method is colored o-rings. I have red & green gas o-rings, but always use black for the fluid post because all of my beer lines have black connectors.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

Colored or white round stick on dots from Wal-Mart or the office supply store you can get a 100 or so for around a $1.

One post gets the dot below or beside it, the other don't.
