Kid Proofing a Keggerator
« on: January 31, 2019, 12:57:10 AM »
We're new to kegging.  We have a kegerator.  The tap locks have not worked out that well--the key just broke off in one of them!

I was considering as an alternative to locking the taps I could disconnect the taps from the kegs and then lock the fridge itself shut.  Then the taps would not work until the door was unlocked and the hoses were reconnected to the kegs.

Is there a reason why I shouldn't do it this way?  (Maybe the hoses will leak?)

Sounds like a reasonable solution.

Try a razor strap. Whenever my dad didn’t want me to do something stupid he said he’d bust by butt with the razor strap. The threat was enough — I never tested him.

Realizing that was about 50 yrs ago and today may be unacceptable, I recommend removing the quick disconnects. I have grandkids running around and that’s what I do.
