Pictured: Loose Handle/Bottom Ball Lock Keg via Adventures in Homebrewing
This technique comes via Facebook friend Jason Connect with HBF on Facebook]. Thank you Jason!
Jason’s technique for repairing loose handles on Cornelius kegs:
- Use automotive brake cleaner to clean the metal and rubber.
- Scuff both the metal and rubber with an emery cloth.
- Get an appropriate adhesive that works with rubber and metal. Consider: 3M 08008 Black Super Weatherstrip Adhesive via Amazon. HBF Reader Scott says Gorilla Glue also works great for this: “Gorilla Glue works great for reattaching rubber keg parts. It’s an expanding polyurethane so it really gets in there and grabs.” Thanks Scott!
- Reattach the handle using the adhesive. Follow the product specific instructions for application and curing.
Another option (again from Jason) is to do the prep work on the keg and ask your local windshield repair shop to apply their adhesive. They use a very strong urethane adhesive that should work great.
Note: Always read and follow manufacturer’s instructions.
