Stainless keg quick connects

So I am getting ready to do my first kegging, scheduled in about 10 days from now. I bought a new ball lock keg, and bought the pre assembled gas in and beer out ( picnic tap) hoses.
I was looking around and saw the stainless quick connects and liked the way the tubing connects at more of a right angle verses angled up. I also thought they may be good to have on hand in case I have any issues with the plastic connects.

They came and look great, although no documentation and they both look identical except for one has a white plastic ring on the body and the other has a black one. So going by the fact my beer out connector is black and my gas in plastic connector is white… I assume when I need to I would just follow suit with the stainless versions. Does this sound reasonable? I was thinking there would be more differences in the two but I can’t see it.

This weekend I will assemble everything and wash and sanitize while pushing some gas in it and checking for leaks.

I am so lucky … 2 pins is gas, 3 pins is liquid… I had ball locks, and I’m sure I had them goofed up… Sneezles61

I’m really on the edge - I have BOTH running at the same time! LOL Brilliantly tried to gas a ball lock keg with a pin lock connection = beer spray…

I just remember that ball lock kegs were made for Pepsi. Pepsi is black liquid, so the liquid line gets black.

The other common one is
Grey and Gas start with G
Black and Beer start with B

Exactly how I remember it. Grey=gas Black=beer. The keg should have a dimple or a notch in the handle on the gas side also.

Unless you’ve taken them apart and didn’t put the long dip tube in the right place! Right dipstick? Been there, done that… Now with pin locks … you just can’t goof up! Sneezles61
