Test with water before using!
They seem to have some quality control issues with this device. I expected a bit of mess with it, but when I attached it I was surprised to see beer spraying in every direction from every conceivable hole on the device. It was coming out of every seam, the holes of the of the coupling nut, the ball lock, everywhere except the faucet itself, which I had closed. Fortunately I had my keg tools with me. I disassembled the device to find that the washer inside the faucet was dislocated and mis-shaped. I was able to mostly mash it back into place and get the nut reattached. Beer was also coming out of the ball lock disconnect, so I disassembled that to find it was completely missing the rubber ring that fits under the cap. I was able to steal one from another ball lock to seal this leak up. By the time we were done, I and my friend were covered in beer. Once I had fixed all the misaligned and missing rubber seals it worked OK. It doesn't have as snug a fit on the post as I would like, but it didn't leak, and it dispensed beer for the rest of the day without issue. I recommend testing on a keg with plain water before committing to a fully pressurized keg of beer.

this is a great product. I use the snap tap with a perlick 650ss with flow control, gives me the convenience of snapping the tap from keg to keg without any hoses or lines, don't have to down-regulate the pressure due to the flow control faucet. If you want a real tap but don't want the installation headache and cost, this is ideal. only downside is there is a little rocking with the torque from activating the tap handle, but probably not as bad with a pin lock as the ball lock.

Snap on Ball Lock tap
This is my 2nd snap on tap and I have been very please with them. They pour great and I recommend you turn the pressure dow to 5 psi when serving as the instructions show. Also after every use soak them in some cleaner for a couple of hours to keep parts from getting sticky. Recommened.

Very nice to have a tap right from the keg. Easy to clean and manage. Good looking and fun to use when entertaining. No hard to manage tubing to clean afterwards and just makes a much nicer setup. Great product.

These are awesome!
These work great! I got 2 for a party. I thought it would be better than having the cobra taps falling all over the place. I just filled a tub with ice and snapped the taps on and they worked great! I did as the directions said and reduced the serving pressure. The pours were perfect. Easy to clean too. I would highly recommend these taps. They give a "coolness" factor to your kegs!

Easy and convenient
Awesome purchase that makes drinking from my keg super easy. It's easy to clean and pops on and off just as you would expect. Bleed the gas before disconnect if you don't want drips.

Easy to use
Upgraded my picnic tap to this and am very pleased with it. Easy to assemble and clean, easy to dispense. No more tubing to deal with. I will put one on my other keg as soon as I fill it

Hi. How does the faucet part attach to the disconnect part? It looks like there is a fitting that screws onto the MPF threads of the disconnect on one end and then into the faucet on the other end. This would mean that the faucet could be put onto another disconnect if the original breaks, etc. Is this the case? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: The best way to think about the tap is top break it down into two components. First is the snap part which attaches to the keg. The snap part has a male screw end that attaches to the faucet piece, they can be screwed and unscrewed together/apart with ease. So yes, if it breaks you can replace either part. Hope this answers your question
Anyone else have a problem with theirs leaking and not staying closed? I lost all co2 and a good amount of beer.
Joshua T on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have several of these, and have never experienced this issue. The key is making sure that all of the connections are tight, and that the faucet is assembled such that it is fully closed when in the shut position to avoid any leaking of beer. I'm not sure how issues with the faucet could result in loss of all your CO2, unless the tap ran until the keg was empty, and the gas continued to flow even after there was no more beer to push out. If your tank emptied before the keg ran dry, it was probably close to being kicked.
Can I get this for a pin lock?
B R on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, sorry. You can get the parts you need to make it, though, or you could get it and switch the keg fitting to Pin-Lock yourself. That way, you'd have both Pin-Lock and Ball-Lock capabilities. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
How tall does this sit on the keg? Is it 3-4" tall?
A shopper on Apr 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It does rise a good 4 inches above the keg with the handle included.
What is the difference between this Brewer Snap tap and the wine tap other than price?
D E on May 1, 2016

The wine snap tap is stainless steel where as this one is chrome plated.

Will this work with the growler filler?
T L on Apr 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes! The Snap Tap uses the standard faucets, (SKU K021), so the Growler Filler ( SKU K346 ) will work great with it. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Does this work with the Perlick 650SS flow control faucet without any modifications or additional purchases?

Perlick 650 Series Forward Sealing Flow Control Faucet
BEST ANSWER: It does not, sorry. The flow control has too much spacing between the threads that it can not screw down tight enough on the snap tap. The normal perlick does but the flow control can only be used with standard shanks/towers.
