Subject: RE: Ball lock vs pin lock.

I own both. I find that the ball lock is much easier to dismantle than the pin
lock. The ball lock fittings can be easily removed/installed from your kegs
using an ordinary deep socket. (Some require a 12 pt socket) It's fast and you
have good control over torque, etc...
There may be a special tool you can get for removing/installing pin-lock fittings
from/on your kegs but I don't own one or know where to order one. I do it by
working with an open-end wrench through a handle slot, doing the "turn your
open-end wrench over every 30 degress" technique, with the wrench wedged in
at kind of a funny angle. Not as good. Maybe I'm doing this wrong, someone tell me.
