No keg will refuse to open when using one of our custom made 1/4″ thick Tap Handles!
Built to outlast any number of kegs you throw at it — whether figuratively or literally!
We work out the design with you via email, have you approve the proof, then program, cut it out with our 480volt CNC plasma, then finished by hand, including welding on the stout (pun intended) 3/8-16 receiver! All other handles will pale in comparison!
Finally, your homebrew can be properly identified with the respect it deserves!
We can make these names, initials, symbols, and more – as long as it will fit on in the area of your tap handle! Just message us and we will quickly work it out!
Dimensions are 10″ tall by 3″ wide by 1/4″ thick (3 gauge), but we can customize to fit your needs.
Does Thickness Matter? YES! But it can be confusing because a lot of ads say “heavy duty,” “thick,” or “very durable,” but those are just words. Some ads will tell you it is a particular gauge, but if you are like us, these approaches make us feel like a goat looking at a watch – – pretty confused! So in this listing we use 1/4″ thick metal plate. Let’s put that in a list of thicknesses using common coins:
1/4″ = .250″ = 3 Gauge = Thicker than Two Quarters AND Two Dimes, all four stacked on top of each other! That is 500% thicker than a lot of signs out there!
1/8″ = .125″ = 11 Gauge = Thicker than a Quarter and a Dime Stacked on Top of Each Other (2.4% Thicker). It is 250% thicker than 18 Gauge and 60% thicker than 14 Gauge.
5/64″ = .078″ = 14 Gauge = Barely Thicker than a Nickel (1.6% thicker).
1/20″ = .05″ = 18 Gauge = Almost as Thick as a Dime (it is 6% short)
