Connecting pipe fittings to beer faucets!

We often get the question on how do we secure the ferrule (chrome or brass fitting that connects to the beer faucet) to the pipe fittings we use. In the interest of protecting our designs, we decided to keep this aspect a trade secret... However, we're ready to offer a solution in the form of a specially made fitting to adapt the 3/8 inch NPT (National Pipe Thread Taper) thread to the 3/8-16 inch UNC (Unified Coarse) thread required by beer faucet tap handle bolts. 

This fitting is ready to screw into a 3/8" NPT coupling and to screw  onto a standard beer faucet! The need for a ferrule to be attached to the original pipe fitting is eliminated, and your cost is actually reduced. Buy this adapter fitting now in our Shop for $10 shipping included.
