To all that can possibly help. I am getting ready to start building my keezer. I am going to have two sciplus secondary regulators on the inside with t-wyes for two different pressures on 4 kegs if needed. My question is; what does everyone use to mount these regulators? Are there brackets? Possibly attach them to the collar? Suggestions and pictures would be awesome. Hopefully once I get going on this and finally get all my parts in I will start posting pictures of the build. Thanks for the help guys.

Brandon

I have not mounted mine on anything yet, but they have a mounting screw hole on the back of the, you just need to find a bolt of the right size and threads to fit it (just take the regulator to the hardware store with you..) I then would mount them to brackets, that would then screw into a piece of wood probably to hold them upright.

Yep, that's what I did. I basically drilled 4 countersunk holes in the back of a 3/4" piece of painted poplar and mounted the regs on that. I then used self-tapping screws to mount the board to my inside kegerator wall.

You can see it somewhat here : http://www.homebrewtalk.com/gallery/...l&ppuser=10609

I was going to use the threaded holes as well, but it ended up being heavy enough that it lays nice and flat on the shelf I built for the manifold. Also, the input port goes through a hole in the shelf, so even if it does get bumped, it can't really fall. I probably will attach it at some point, but laziness rules at the moment.

You can buy mounting brackets designed for the regulators. My secondary regs were used, and came with them, and I mounted it to the outside of my collar. You can find them online, MicroMatic has some for example.

Thanks. I will look into those on micromatic as I want to just mount them to the inside of the somewhere. That brings up a good question: Do most people mount them on the inside or does anyone leave them on the outside so they can control pressure without lifting the lid? Just a thought. thanks again guys!

Mine will be mounted on the outside with my Co2 tank, will keep them from rusting up from any condensation. Also I hear it is better on the diaphragms inside.
