Does anyone know what kind of faucet lock will work on Perlick forward seal faucets? I tried the slip-on kind but they didn't fit.

Also, the only stout faucet lock I could find doesn't fit the NB stout faucet. Any ideas on an alternative? I have a new kegerator and a teenager with untrustworthy friends.

Thanks.

you could put a lock on the door/lid and just unhook the liquid posts when your not around...

That is going to be my plan in the next 10 years.

I've only seen the kind that's posted by yermej, so I don't know what the OP meant by "slip on kind", but here's a pic with the perlick forward seal faucet [perlick also makes the standard rear sealing faucets]

Yeah, those are the ones that I'm going to buy. The irony is that the locks are more expensive than the faucets themselves, depending on the vendor. I'm going to have 5 Perlick faucets on my keezer. That's going to be something like $900 in just faucets and locks!

And to think I was able to convince SWMBO that brewing your own was cheaper than buying bottles.

How to justify that spending $180 dollars to keep underage kids from drinking at your house therefore making you responsible (legally) for when they get killed/kill somebody drunk driving or even if there parents find out they were drinking at your house? I'd say $180 is lot cheaper than court costs and fines and fees and definitely a lot cheaper than the guilt if something horrible was to happen because they got into your unlocked taps.

*justified*

If you're taking on the perks of having a kegerator in your home, then along with it come the responsibilities of keeping it from underage consumption. Not trying to sound like a jerk up on a high horse, but reallity has to come into play.

Out of curiousity do you padlock the fridge when there are bottles in it?

And is the room you brew in locked at all times?

I've debated low cost ways to lock my faucets as well. My big problem comes when little kids come by and are fascinated by the tap handles and pull them allowing beer to come out on to the floor. I've already invested in a lock for the door, but am thinking about installing shut-off valves in the beer lines.
