The Assembled Beer Shank Kit: A Closer Look
Assembled beer shanks are most commonly found in kegerators. A hose barb (nipple) is incorporated into the beer shank assembly for attaching the beer line and clamp. In some types of assembled beer shanks, the nipple can be removed while in others it is attached permanently.
A removable beer shank assembly often includes a flare nut and packing gland that helps hold the nipple in place to prevent leaks.
