Description

The humble plastic ball lock disconnect has been around a long time and is used by countless homebrewers around the world.  Despite the extensive use they have seen little to no innovation for decades and KegLand wanted to change this. Enter the Duotight Ball Lock QD. The integrated Duotight design means you can connect your beer and gas line directly, easily and reliably with no need for additional fittings or clamps. It is a robust and super compact design that is incredibly easy to assemble and disassemble, making cleaning and sanitizing an absolute breeze!

Made from highly chemical resistant materials with stainless springs and ball bearings (no cheap ABS plastics here) this baby is extremely resistant to commonly used chemicals such as phosphoric based sanitizers and caustics. The incredibly small form factor allows for easy stacking of kegs. The new cap design ensures a pressure seal with just hand tightening and it can be completely taken apart for cleaning with no tools required.

Duotight Ball Lock QDs are offered in three sizes that correspond to the outer diameters seen on our line of EVABarrier Draft Tubing. 

  • 6.35 mm OD – features a very tight 3 mm ID that requires only 3.2 ft of length for adequate flow resistance. This is the ideal size for mobile draft or if you want to keep your kegerator as tidy as possible.
  • 8 mm OD – the most common OD size of EVABarrier tubing. This size comes in two IDs (4 mm & 5 mm) and pairs up with the lion's share of Duotight fittings and accessories. 4 mm ID is our most recommended size for beverage lines, requiring 5-6 ft. lengths. 5 mm ID is commonly used as gas line or when 10-12 ft. beverage lines are required.
  • 9.5 mm OD – suitable for gas lines or long draw beverage lines. At 6.3 mm ID, this size is ideal for beverage lines that will be 20 ft. or longer in length.

Features:

  • Ball Lock Quick Disconnect - Bev Out
  • Direct connect EVABarrier tubing
  • Compact design won't interfere with keg stacking
  • Made from highly chemical resistant materials
  • Dissamble by hand for quick and easy cleaning
  • Three sizes available:
    • 6.35 mm (KL24235)
    • 8 mm (KL20749)
    • 9.5 mm (KL20763)

Richard J DePas on Nov 16, 2022
How do you remove the tubing? These QDs seem harder to remove than the push in fittings.
Dan on Sep 29, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Find a tool -- i end up using a small crescent wrench with a gap set to the diameter of the tube, but there may be a tool made for the purpose -- anything you can use to depress the little collar that grasps the tube -- press the collar in against the housing -- while using the other hand to pull the tube out.
What's the recommendation to convert a "traditional" kegging setup to Duo Tight fittings? Mainly looking for recommendation on hose diameter & hook up to TapRite regulator barbs?
Lutz Engmann on Aug 8, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I use 8mm and everything works just fine including connecting to my TapRight regulator.

Very high quality, easy to clean, and they never leak
I've been using these for some time now, and they've proven quite reliable and easy to clean. They've never leaked and always form a perfect seal. An added touch is the marking indicating how far your tubing will need to be inserted to properly engage both seals (see Tip below). I find these QDs to be particularly easy to disassemble for cleaning and I don't have to worry about losing parts. And don't underestimate the color: gold for beer makes a whole lot more sense! :D

Tip: Use a permanent marker to place a little line on your tubing so you'll always be guaranteed that your tubing is inserted completely as it's pretty easy to only push it in far enough for only 1 of the DuoTight seals to engage.
