I’ve heard for quite a while now, that these shelf caps (model 75355) from ClosetMaid make dandy keg feet replacement. You get a total of 84 feet – 60 small and 24 large. The small are the ones said to work as keg lid feet. If you crunch the numbers on per foot cost, it typically ends up being a pretty big bargain.
I decided to put these to the test. Do they work well as keg lid feet? We’ll find out… I’m sure you’re on the edge of you’re seat now!
The package. Hey… these are meant to be used as wire rack caps. You get yourself a shelf, something like this, cut it to size and then use this caps to make it so you don’t cut yourself up when you grab a pair of socks or something. They probably work great for their intended purpose.
As mentioned previously, you get two sizes of caps. The small caps are the ones used for keg lid feet.
Here they are installed. Hmmm.
If you look closely you’ll see the “foot” pulling away as this closes.
Do these work? Not really. The thickness of the cap should help to exert pressure on the lid and help the oring seal. These aren’t as thick as purpose made feet. For the cost of the real thing (and considering what’s at stake – CO2… beer!), I would personally rather use purposed designed equipment for this purpose.
In fairness to those who have said these work well… 1. The stock picture looks different from what I received – maybe these have changed and 2. Maybe they do fit well on some feet. Just not the ones I tried.
