Me neither.  Some day though :)

Or you could get a sanke spear welded onto a corny lid . . .

I got one of them. It does do the job. Bottle does not hold the pressure when you disconnect the coupler.

I use 1/4" flare fittings on the ends of all my lines and that allows me to swap any adapter, corny, or sankey, or anything else. I generally use a corny keg with a bit of pressure to clean the lines. The flare fittings are cheap, and I really have never liked the pressure tanks offered to clean tap lines and they are a ripoff. When it is easy to clean your lines you'll do it more frequently :-)

All it takes are these parts, and you can buy them at all of the larger homebrewing suppliers.

I do the same. In fact, I have a 2.5 gallon corny that has had line cleaner sitting in it for over a year, once month I run it through the lines and let sit overnight, then reconnect the lines to beer and run about a 1/2 pint through and dump.  Never have any problems.
