Help connecting 1/4" Gas Connector to 5/16" barb?

Everyone,
Just received my gas connector kit from NB and I have run into a problem. The NB gas connector is a 1/4" screw-in end, but my regulator has a 5/16" barb end (which came with my kegerator). What is the best (and fastest) way to convert? I was planning on force carbonating my caribou slobber staring tonight.
Thanks!

I can’t find the part on their website.

So you have a 1/4" vinyl hose for the CO2 to the keg and it has a 1/4" flare fitting on its end?
And the CO2 regulator has a 5/16" hose barb?

If so, cut off or remove the 1/4" flare fitting. Heat the end of the 1/4" hose in hot water for a couple of minutes. Push the hose onto the 5/16" hose barb. Secure with a hose clamp.

Fill keg.

Thanks!

I ended up having to order a splitter for the regulator (K035) and a new 1/4" shut off valve (K038). So, now I have 2 shut off valves coming from one regulator; one for my homebrew and one for commercial kegs. Problem solved. Now I need to get the new fittings so I can use my kegerator to pour the beer!
