Universal Poppet Valve


SKU# K376

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer

This simple poppet works on all kegs, ball lock and pin lock.

Note that since it is a universal part, it will be easier to use on some keg designs than others. It is not ideal as a complete replacement of a missing part, but it is great for temporary fixes.

Excellent product.
I have these on three of my ball lock kegs. They work great and the gasket is replaceable.

Seals problem poppets
I've used about a 6 of these on various kegs where I couldn't get the poppet to seal consistently. The spring provides a lot more tension than a standard poppet spring which seems to provide a much stronger seal. I'd convert all my poppets to these but I instead just keep a handful around to replace the poppets on any problem kegs.

Easy to install and works great!
No more leaky kegs. Putting this in was a breeze.

That's all I can say. I spent probably $25 a year ago trying to find replacement poppits. None of them worked with any of my kegs. Just ordered a few of these, for basically half the price of the other poppits, and they work like a charm! Awesome! Thanks NB!

Works Great
These work great on almost all keg posts. I've noticed a couple of my keg posts have a little bit wider interior dimension on them at the top, where the poppet seats. This causes these to protude about 1/16 of an inch above the top of the post, but still seals perfectly. I've replaced all my poppets with these and have had no issues. The springs are fairly strong, so popping the ball lock on some posts requires a little elbow grease.

Outstanding universal replacement poppet
What a clever design for a universal poppet replacement. Easy to install and work like a charm. I will be replacing all of mine eventually but I've just replaced the problem ones so far. These are GREAT!!

Stop guessing
Why take a chance on getting the wrong poppet. This universal one fits them all and works great.

Did the Trick
Worked, but sits high, not flush... No leaks, so happy.

Can be too tall
As some reviewers have stated sometimes the universal poppet is too tall or stiff making it nearly impossible to connect your disconnects. I have not tried it yet, but it seems that they would work fine if a bottom ring was cut off.

Had to Cut the Spring
I couldn't get my disconnects on to the keg posts and couldn't figure out why. I finally read these reviews and realized I'm not the only one. Thanks to brandon, I cut one circle off the bottom (the larger end) and the disconnects connect nicely now. I used hand held wire cutters and it took me forever to cut through the spring.

Have these changed since 2012? Seemed a lot of reviewers complained of slightly too long of a spring causing slight issues.
