Necessary for Kegging
I know some people don't use flared connectors and just rely on barbs for regulators and such, but I find this to be much easier to use and a breeze to clean lines. There's a bit more upfront cost compared to barbed connectors, but it's worth it, especially if you pick up pin-lock kegs for cheap even though you normally use ball-lock and vice versa._x000D__x000D_Just make sure you get Swivel Nut Gaskets to ensure a good seal

Good product
I use these to connect my beer lines to my keg fittings. They work great and are easy to install. Just heat the end of the plastic tubing in some hot water and slip it over the barb. Great product.

Great for changing out kegs
These are great. They allow me to easily interchange ball lock homebrew kegs and sanke (store bought) kegs. Soak your tubes in hot water and they can be installed easily.

good for gas lines
Unfortunately my C02 Regulator did not have a barbed end to connect to the gas line. I used this swivel nut and a hose clamp to connect the gas line and it's now working.

Simple and Great
Quality is awesome and easy to attach to the line. These make changing out parts of the system very easy! This will help save your line - no need to cut it from the barb everytime you need to change something.

Worth the upfront cost
Its what I needed to connect my lines to my regulator. By swiveling there is no bending of the lines or pinching. I like the extra flexibility and swivel nuts are the way to go.

Good for gas lines
Make sit easy to attach gas lines. If your CO2 regulator doesn't have a barb then this is the ideal pick up for you. It made mine a lot easier to use.

perfect for flexible systems
I use these to connect to my keg fittings. This allows me to use pin, ball lock, or a sanke fittings without cutting my lines off the barbs. Be sure to leave a small gap between the nut and hose end when installing a hose clamp, otherwise the nut wont spin easily. Also like any line fitting you want to warm the ends of the hose in hot water to soften. This allows easier installation and a better seal because the tube molds more. I also recommend using swivel nut gaskets for a better seal._x000D__x000D_

Great For Gas Lines
My C02 Regulator did not have a barbed end to connect the gas line to, this swivel nut connected easily and made it simple to use a hose clamp to connect the gas line to it. Could not have worked better.

I use these for all of my lines and QD's. The extra initial upfront cost is well worth the investment when compared to the headache of changing lines and gives you additional flexibility. Swivel nuts are the way to go IMO.

Are these Stainless?
W A on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe they are, they are not plated with anything.
Are these "led free" so that they can be used on potable water ?
J O on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure if they are lead free but the description says it is suitable for both beverage and gas lines. I am currently using the swivel nut on a gas line and it works great. Hope this helps.
What size does your "Ball Lock Liquid Disconnect, Threaded" use? I see no sizes in the descriptions.
Timothy S on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's used with 1/4" ID, 1/2" OD tubing which is what should be your standard CO2 gas line.
