$34.99

In stock and ready to ship.

Make it easy to switch between commercial kegs and homebrew product tanks with this Sankey to Ball-Lock Disconnect Conversion Kit.


    Overview

    If you serve beer from both a Sankey D system and a homebrew keg, such as a Cornelius keg, this product will allow you to easily switch between the two. Since this product features uni-body posts, you won't need to worry about losing small parts or assembly.

    This kit features a ball-lock post for both the gas and liquid sides of a Sankey D keg coupler. Each post threads onto the standard US 7/8-inch x 14 female straight pipe thread draft fittings of your coupler.

    All you’ll need to do is attach ball-lock disconnects to your beer and air lines and then screw these conversion plugs onto your coupler. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to quickly and efficiently change out your kegs to enjoy both mass-produced commercial beer and your own homebrew creations.

    Features
    • Unibody design eliminates complicated assembly and lost parts.
    • Ball-lock posts easily attach to Sankey coupler air and beer line fittings
    • Makes it easy to toggle between commercial and homebrew beers
    • Includes both gas and liquid side ball-lock posts

    Improved.
    much better than previous version. easier to attach to coupler and also fit all my disconnects. I guess better tolerances in manufacturing. also easier to distinguish between liquid and gas.

    Outstanding quality.
    Purchased similar fittings from another source that suffered from marginal quality and poor size tolerancing. These fittings from Kegworks fixed those problems. I would definitely buy these again.

    Excellent adapter!
    This is just what I needed! A word of caution however. Do not over tighten. There is a rubber washer inside that got twisted up when I first put the adapter on. It is a real rubber washer, not some cheap piece of plastic, so it grips a little too much. I resolved the problem by popping the washer out and putting a little keg lube on it. Now it tightens up easily and seals perfectly. If you are using this adapter you probably have keg lube on hand anyway.

    Works fantastic
    Worked perfect first time. I took the advice of one reviewer that said, “A word of caution however. Do not over tighten.

    Quick and easy to do
    Easy to convert from Sankey to Cornelius keg with these adapters. Sadly I thought the Sankey tap came with the conversion kit but had to purchase that separately. Good quality and easy to use and convert the breweries kegs to my own home brew set up for dispensing those great tasting 2 carbon fragments!

    Works well once you get it together...
    They connect to the sankey coupler great. The process of connecting the ball lock disconnects is very difficult. I basically had to cover the posts in keg line and even then it took some taps with a rubber mallet to get the ball locks to click into place. I’m not entirely sure how I’ll get them off when the time comes.

    But it pours like a champ. Overall pretty happy.

    Local brewery selling their stocked kegs (with Sankey valve) at 1/2 price since they can't distribute it to restaurants and pubs that are closed during this COVID crisis and I home brew and have only Cornelius keg fittings. This should allow conversion so I can keep using my beer and C02 lines that attach to these fittings, same as those on the Corny kegs.

    Great conversion kit, it allows you to use your ball lock kegerator with a sankey keg.

    I chose this because I have a 3 tap homebrew system with ball locks for both the co2 and beer lines, and am going to use commercial kegs
    Bryce U on Jul 9, 2016
    With this kit, I avoid the hassle with re-configuring my kegerator for commercial keg couplers. Now, I can use the ball lock connectors for any keg whether coupler or ball lock posts.

    Hi - did you have any issue with beer line head space inside your kegerator with these posts installed on your coupler? Looks like the line might not clear the top of the kegerator.
    A shopper on Mar 28, 2020
    BEST ANSWER: I did not have and issues, but I have a keezer with a 2x4 collar. I don’t know what kind of height you have available. The commercial kegs I use are about about 28” from the floor to the disconnect. My keezer has 32” of height.
    Is there a lower profile version? When I attached the adapter to the top sankey post, and the ball lock to the Adapter, it is about a quarter inch too tall for my Danby kegerator. I really hoped this would make switching back and forth from sankey to ball lock easy.
    Tim on Jun 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Timothy, we don't have a low-profile version of these adapters. However, a keg elbow will help with the clearance issue you're having. A low profile Sankey coupler is an option, but can't be used with the adapters, so it wouldn't help make it easier to switch kegs. Cheers!

    I figured out the gas side but the liquid side is still leaking - any tricks or tips that I’m missing beyond a tight connect with the black washer installed?
    Reedo27 on Aug 29, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: I used mine around 5 times with no leaks. Now i use a brewery that cleans & fills my kegs for $60. No need for me to transfer beer anymore. To your question. One review on Kegworks site about this product wrote this: “A word of caution however. Do not over tighten. There is a rubber washer inside that got twisted up when I first put the adapter on. It is a real rubber washer, not some cheap piece of plastic, so it grips a little too much. I resolved the problem by popping the washer out and putting a little keg lube on it. Now it tightens up easily and seals perfectly. If you are using this adapter you probably have keg lube on hand anyway.” I believe i did just that because i read reviews before purchasing products. I carefully tightened it to ensure i did not overtightened it & crush the washer. Otherwise you will have to use a fiber washer which is flat & practically crushproof. Hope that helps.
    Are these available in a "pin Lock" version instead of the Ball lock?
    Brian P on Jun 6, 2020
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Brian, I'm sorry but it doesn't appear that we carry a pin lock version for that kit, and our supplier does not carry it either. Cheers!
    Are these different than standard ball lock posts?
    A shopper on Mar 29, 2020
    BEST ANSWER: Only in that they are designed to be attached to a sankey coupler, rather than the corny keg itself. Standard ball lock disconnects are fully compatible with this conversion kit.

    when adding the ball lock conversion kit to my Sankey tap, do I need to keep the rubber check valve on the Air side?
    kellypdx on Jul 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Kelly, you definitely need to keep the check valve on the coupler. The check valve is essential to keeping beer out of your air line. These adapters just make it easier to switch between keg types. Cheers!
