Are Ball Lock and Pin Lock Post O-Rings the Same? + New Option in FDA Silicone

For whatever reason, it’s difficult to find food safe keg o-rings.  Maybe some of the o-rings that are available are food safe, but very few are actually labeled as such.

The fact is we’re putting beer (food) in our kegs and we should be using food safe materials whenever we can.  More Info: Food Safe Replacement Keg O-Rings

PIN LOCK Post O-Rings!

Pin Lock users are regularly left out when it comes to parts and accessories.  Point in case… I am aware of very few offerings for pin lock post o-rings.  Most shops sell the same o-ring for both ball and pin lock posts.  Pin lock post o-rings are larger than ball lock post o-rings.

I am aware of 0 offerings for bulk pin lock post o-rings.  I’ve already shared how difficult it is to buy food grade replacements, so, you can probably guess how many food grade pin lock post offerings I’m aware of, yep 0.
