Universal Poppets for Rebuilding Kegs + Tip

5 universal keg poppets by Happybrew

I use universal poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs.tn_img_0443-300x225  I have these poppets.  Check out my Hands on Review.

Tip: These fit the vast majority of kegs without issue.  I have had a couple kegs that ended up being a bit too tight with these.  It’s an easy fix.  Use a pair of wire cutters or Nipper Pliers to trim the universal poppet.  I suggest taking off about half of a coil and testing.  You want the QD to slide on easily and for it to reliably hold pressure when the QD is off.  Taking off a half of a coil and testing helps you make sure you don’t end up making the poppet too loose.

    Why do you first show a picture of a pin lock style poppet but on the next page, you list a 5 pack of ball lock poppets? Can you point me to pin lock poppets?

      Hey John! I’m just showing a different picture other than the default on amazon. If you look through the pictures on the product page, should see this exact same picture. This is listed as a ball lock universal poppet, but I *think* they also work for pin lock kegs. That’s a guess based on what I’ve seen elsewhere. I do have a pin lock keg, but haven’t played around with it too much. I think the universals work in both ball and pin lock, but again… I’m guessing.
