Any beer line coupler for home brew lines?

I am new to kegging and am in the process of assembling my Kegerator. On my Kegs, I have these

My beer line is connected to this post with this .

I also have a beer line cleaning pump with this same 1/4" Barbed Swivel Nut connection. How do I connect my beer line cleaning connection to my beer line connection? I will need some type of coupler. Does any coupler exist? Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

If you are talking about using the type of fitting for a commercial sanke keg, then I don’t think Northern Brewer carries them, but I have seen them at Williams Brewing.

Thanks for your reply. No I am only looking at home brew ball lock kegs. This fitting would not do me any good unless I am missing something.

Show a pic of your pump connection that’s needed.

The swivel connection that you show threads on to the pictured ball lock Q D, yes?
You need some hose of the appropriate size, and some clamps for the hose…
Hose clamps “will work”…But I believe the preferred clamp is known as an “oetiker” clamp.

The screw type hose clamps are a pain in the butt, in my opinion, as the snag on stuff with the loose “tail” after the clamping screw.

To include your skin!

Here is the connection that is on my beer line cleaning pump:

The barbed end is attached to the cleaning hose. It looks like the other end connects to a regular full size professional keg type connection.

I do not have a picture of what I need as I do not know what I need or if it even exists. Am I making sense?

That big winged contraption there…Is the male end garden hose sized?

Go out in the yard and check it.

Take your “winged thingy” to the hardware store (preferably a old school one) and verify the thread size. Take the swivel nut with also.

I’m guessing you need something like this.

I was thinking the same thing. Simple and inexpensive solution.

As suggested, this, from Northern Brewer looks like it should work.

I ordered one and will check it out. This would be exactly what I need if it works. I will update this when it arrives and let everyone know. Thanks everyone.

I can confirm that this connection works fine. A nylon collar in between prevents any leaking. Thanks everyone.

“Which” connection, Jimmy?

Edit: The barbed one…Where did ya’ need the nylon collar, as I figured it was an “npt” thread, or a flare fitting.
