Repacking a quick disconnect blow off. Can you repack it?

I used to drive a beer truck, so I’m pretty familiar with complex kegging systems.


I blew off the safety valve on my plastic ball disconnect and earned a purple thumb for my efforts. Lesson learned: Home brew kegging is nothing like commercial kegging.

I believe I collected all the quick disconnect’s parts and have repacked them. Can you do that? Or should I order a new gas-in disconnect?

Thanks for your time.

Turn your PSI down to almost nothing and try it this is the first time I’ve ever heard of what happened to you. Better yet shut off the gas and slowly turn it back on with some thing covering the disconnect.

I know they say to make sure they are screwed in tight when you buy new ones but how many of us ever check it.
