Perlick faucets tap handle angles
« on: August 04, 2016, 02:33:17 AM »
I recently installed 3 perlick faucets on my bar. I was really excited about them until I realized the angles the tap handles sit on the faucets cause the handles to hit the back splash when I close the tap. I'm hoping to learn of some way to adjust the angle the tap handles sit on the faucets so that they sit more forward in the closed position and don't hit the back wall but am gearing I may have to go back to the standard faucet to correct this.

Hey I have the same issue with perlicks in my kegerator. I use short handles for now, but I am looking into making or finding spacers to put behind the black plastic flange which is 2.25 inches OD and about 1 inch ID. Some kind of aluminum pipe sections or plastic of some sort should work and also set the faucet away from the door for easier pouring too.
The angled faucet handle adapters would work too, but add more length from the looks of it.
I turn some of my own handles on a lathe and make them from cool things like old golf balls etc.
