DetailsThis Ball Lock Gas Fitting is threaded so you can attach a barbed swivel nut to the fitting along with the appropriate sized tubing. This ball lock fitting works well with 5/16" gas tubing because you get a much tighter connection using the barbed swivel nut. Keep in mind that gray is for gas.

5.0 / 5.015 ReviewsEasy to use, good priceI purchased these when I switched over to kegging. They are easy to use and in the grand scheme of home brewing inexpensive. I have 1 for each keg and 2 back-ups just in case. Never had any issues with the ability to switch out lines or kegs, fits right on the ball lock and the threads allow for easy switching out.December 25, 2013Saves time and effortThe threading connection makes cleaning much easier and makes me more confident of tight fits. I'd rather not mess with the barbed set upDecember 22, 2013Holds up greatBeing made from plastic, I expected this to break in no time at all. Well, so far it's held up very well. It's very easy to disconnect from the gas line, easy to clean, and makes a good connection each time. I do suggest using some keg lube on the posts to keep everything working correctly.November 18, 2013Great for quick disconnectWorks well and is a great way to quickly and easily connect a tube to your soda keg. Just be careful not to push down too hard or the plastic base can strip off shooting the spring out. Make sure to measure the tubing so you know which barbed swivel nut to buy along with this item.October 29, 2013GreatThese threaded ball lock QD's are very affordable (about $10 at some LHBS in the area) when buying in bulk, they work easily and the threaded connection to the barbed swivel nut means they are easy to breakdown, swap out, store unhooked, and move around when connected to gas. I'm a big fanJuly 24, 2013quick and easy to use!These are quick and easy to use with your ball lock homebrew keg. Ive got a few of these so I can use them for different applications without having to disassemble my setup. One is always hooked to my gas line from my 5lb CO2 tank at the house, one is used with my compact carbonator, and I've got a spare on deck just in case. At such a low price, why not have a few around!July 16, 2013FlexibleThese threaded ball lock connectors work as advertised. I like that they are threaded instead of a barb. Makes it easy to change out if you use commercial kegs or need to clean. Make sure you pull the collar up and press down hard when connecting. Connection should be solid and not wobbly. Grey is for Gas!May 21, 2013Works great - flexible.I had an older one of these connectors, and attached it to my new keg the other day, and it worked perfectly. I prefer the threaded end for my quick connects, which make everything so much easier.April 25, 2013EssentialThese are threaded ball lock connectors. They are a good price and they do exactly what they are supposed to. Having a threaded connection makes it easy to swap out for pin locks or even commercial kegs.March 26, 2013AwesomeAll of my QD's are swivel nut/threaded, the ease of use and flexibility completely outweighs the initial upfront costs. Do yourself a favor and go threaded.March 22, 2013
