    Overview

    You may not see it in action, but a high-end shank is crucial to serving up perfectly fresh beer from a draft beer faucet.

    The beer shank is inserted through your refrigerator or house wall. On one end, inside the fridge, you attach the beer lines. On the other end, the shank is connected to your beer tap faucet.

    Made from solid stainless steel, these beer shanks are an upgrade over standard nickel or chrome-plated brass models. Stainless steel is extraordinarily durable, so you can count on years and years of worry-free performance. It also resists corrosion, so unlike other materials, stainless steel won’t ever give your beer a tainted, metallic taste.

    These stainless steel shanks are an excellent choice for both home and commercial bars. You can order your shank in a length between 3 and 8 inches. Each shank is shipped fully assembled, including coupling nut, sleeve, snap ring, plastic flange, and flanged lock nut.

    Designed with ⅞-inch x 14 straight pipe thread, each of these stainless steel shanks will work with all North American faucets. If you’re using equipment from outside North America, you’ll need to source a specialty shank.

    To order, carefully measure your draft beer system and order the correct length for your needs. For multi-tap systems, we offer bulk pricing on when ordering your shanks.

    True to size
    Unlike the Nickel plated 2 inch shank, this 2 inch SS shank is true to size when the thickness of the wall / board that it passes through is critical. Great quality

    For my bar
    Eli T on Dec 6, 2015
    Three questions:
    1. Does this fit ITEM # SS-SHANK also sold on this site?
    2. Is there a Stainless Steel version of this? Or is that a bit too OCD?
    3. If I'm reading this correctly, is this 15/16" long? And if so, since this is curved (to fit a tower), is that from the longest or shortest length from the flat end to the curved end?

    Thanks!

    Where do you/I connect the hose from the keg?
    Owen D on Nov 12, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: If you are looking at that first picture you connect the hose on the left side using a threaded hose fitting. The adapter plate on the other side is for the faucet.
    Which length is appropriate for a 2 x 4 (actual thickness is 1 1/2")?
    A shopper on Aug 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: 4" minimum, I'd likely go with the 5" or 6".
    Having a minimum of 50% of your shank extending into your kegerator/keezer is necessary to avoid a foamy pour.
    When chilled, carbonated beer meets a warm shank or tap, the change (rise) in temperature causes the release of co2 = foam.
    Will a perlick faucet fit in this shank?
    A shopper on Jan 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes the shanks are standard size and the perlicks are the same size (as are other faucet taps).
    do these beer shanks have a chrome coupling nut? or do i need to buy it separately?
    dguido02 on Jul 12, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: There is a brass nut on rear to hold it in fridge door or kegorator door, and on the business side you have all you need to mount your tap faucet you will need the tap wrench to Titen it properly without scratching it.
    What size do I need for fridge door?
    A shopper on Dec 25, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: They are "all thread" so it really can't be too long, only too short.

    does this shank work with a faucet that has flow control?
    Spiros S on Mar 20, 2019

    Are the measurements for each of these front-to-back, or are they the length of the threaded portion past the plastic flange?
    pennig on Mar 12, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Hello! Thanks for checking out Kegworks! The measurements of our stainless steel shanks are from front-to-back.
    Hi KegWorks. I’m using 3/16 beverage line and would like to purchase 6” stainless steel shanks. Can I get 3/16 bore shanks? Will 3/16 line into 1/4 bore shanks cause foaming issues? Many thanks, Dean
    A shopper on May 28, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: These shanks are compatible with 3/16" ID beer line. You won't have any foaming issues due to the different bore size to beer line ID.
    Does it work with john guest speed fittings?
    A shopper on Nov 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, with the proper thread size adapter these shanks will work with the John Guest system.
    Is it possible to get these in 12-inch or longer lengths? Would strongly prefer not to use anything plated for this installation.
    A shopper on Jun 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Our sales team can sources stainless steel shanks in longer lengths for you. Please email beer@kegworks.com or call us at 866.881.2337 so we can help you further. Cheers!
    How long is the threaded portion of these shanks? If I buy an 8 inch shank, what is the maximum wall thickness I can use the shank on?
    David B on Aug 6, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi David, the threaded portion of the 8" shank is 6 7/16 inches. We recommend that the wall thickness not be more than 6 inches, as you will also need to connect the fittings to the back end of the shank. I do hope this was helpful. Cheers!
    Does this come with hose attachment?
    A shopper on May 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. These shanks do not include beer line, that is sold seperately. We make it easy by selling a beer line jumper which included 5 feer of hose with all the attachments you need! Cheers!
