Hi all,

I'm changing out the o-rings sets on some used corny kegs (the old ones smell like soda); any tips for getting the old o-rings out of the groove on top of the posts without slicing or puncturing my fingers? Thanks for all responses.

I used a small flat head screw driver. Think precision screw driver. I also used a butter knife. The o-rings are goners anyway so you can be a bit rough on them.

I use needle nose pliers to pinch the o-ring. I turn them horizontally and pinch along the grooves so I'm just squeezing the o-ring and not scratching the post
