In stock and ready to ship.

Made of high-quality stainless steel, this replacement snap ring keeps your beer faucet secure and pouring properly.


    It might be the smallest part of your entire draft beer system, but we can assure you that you don’t want to try pouring without a high-quality snap ring.

    When installing your shank, the snap rings fits into the groove at the end. Working in conjunction with the shank sleeve, it prevents the coupling nut from sliding off the end, which helps create a secure connection between the nut and the beer faucet. As you can imagine, this small part is very easy to misplace, which is why a replacement part is needed.

    Measuring ⅞ in. in diameter, this replacement snap ring is made from super-durable stainless steel. It’s designed to fit all standard US draft beer faucet shanks.

    You should have no problem installing your new snap ring.
