THREE Ball Lock Only Accessories
I’m aware of three accessories that, to my knowledge, are available for Ball Lock Kegs, but not available for Pin Lock Kegs. It’s worth noting that when I started this section, there was a single accessory. The list is growing. If you’re on the fence, this may be a tick in favor of ball lock kegs.
#1 Ball Lock Jumper
Allows you to connect multiple ball lock runs to clean multiple lines and taps at the same time. Works with both liquid and gas QDs. Stainless Steel Ball Lock Jumper – via Valuebrew
#2 Carbonation Caps
Carbonation Caps fit on 1L and 2L size PET Bottles and allow you to pressurize a PET bottle for transporting or preserving the carbonation level of your homebrew (Squeeze out the air in the headspace first to minimize oxygen pickup). You can also use them to quickly carbonate homebrew and fine tune carbonation levels (maybe for competition entry) and… more.

- New offerings regularly pop up. Search Amazon for “stainless steel carbonation cap” to see what’s out there. Again, check descriptions to make sure these work for both gas/grey and liquid/black QDs.
#3 Ball Lock QD with Shank
This ball lock beer connector from Kegland features a shank collar to attach a faucet directly to the ball lock connector. Unlike the previous two ball lock only accessories, this one does have a work around… an MFL QD + Corny Keg Disconnect Faucet Adapter gets you there, albeit not as cleanly.
