A loose corny keg handle or base can be an annoyance. If your keg is in otherwise good shape, it may make sense to repair a loose handle or base.
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.
- Reattach the handle using the adhesive. Follow the product specific instructions for application and curing.
Note: Always read and follow manufacturer’s instructions.
