Tap Handle Insert

Kind of a last minute idea.... I am looking to wip together a homemade tap handle for a get together tomorrow afternoon.   My local shop doesn't carry these inserts to make your own.   Anyone know what the thread size is of a tap?   I know I can pick one of these up at HD or similar place.

The typical specs are:

    9/8” High
    1/2” Wide
    Female Threads are 3/8”-16 UNC

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?
