Tips for Proper Fit!

  • I use universal style poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs.
  • Universal poppets 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.  Search Amazon for “nipper pliers”.   Look for a tool that’s designed to cut nail heads.
  • Important: 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.
  • Immediately replace o-rings!  Over time, I’ve learned to discard the o-rings that come with universal poppets.  Why?  Because I don’t know what they’re made of and I want to have a reliable source for replacements in the future.  Since replacement o-rings can vary slightly in size, making this change before trimming coils to size,  I know that the poppet will fit correctly when I replace the o-ring in the future.  Grab food grade replacements in bulk, replace immediately, trim and then you’ll have spares that won’t change fit when you need them.

  • Food rated o-rings are confusingly tough to find and in my opinion, are especially important for universal poppets as this is one point that is in constant  with your beer.
