I picked up my Frididaire 7.2 cu ft freezer on sale with free shipping from Bestbuy.com a few weeks ago. Model # FFFC07M2KW

It holds 3 pin locks perfectly and looks like if I want, I could add a 3 gallon on the shelf or build a collar. Currently I only have picnic taps, but will be adding a collar of some sorts and tap handles in the future. I'll also be splitting those regulators so I can have all four kegs going at once.

I am looking for a freezer for a keezer, and I am wanting to start without a collar and with just picnic taps while I plan the rest of the project. Anyone know if most 7.2 or 8.8 freezers will hold a ball lock WITHOUT a collar height wise?

Thanks

The GE 7.0 cu ft will hold 4 (VERY tight) or 3 (easy) ball-lock with QD's with the lid closed. If you go the 4 route, you need to make sure that you co2 canister isn't too tall as it needs to be on the hump. (I have a squat 5# one that just barely works, a 4# skinny one that doesn't). If you just have 3 kegs in it, you will likely be able to fit the co2 canister on the floor, so plenty of vertical space. Then you can use the hump to hold some six packs or whatever.

Does anyone know if the Frigidaire 7.2 will hold a 1/2 barrel?

Looks like it would be close, what is the distance front to back on the 7.2?

I'm looking at the Kenmore 7.2 at Sears, on sale now for $171.49. There a pic earlier in this thread with 3 kegs on the floor. I'm wondering how close it is to fitting 4, hard to tell from the pic. I want 3 kegs on the floor and hoping my 20# co2 tank will squeeze in too (a hair narrower than a ball lock). If not, anyone that could give me the measurement from hump to lid please? I really don't want a tall collar on this one, been there done that. Thanks.

I got a 5cu. Ft. Holiday/haier freezer this weekend off Craigslist. Who has this freezer and has converted it. Just looking for any issues you ran into or what the finished project looked like.

Thanks.
