How do you attach it to the keg while serving?

Not sure what you mean. You attach the whole thing to the keg by Velcro tapes and connect the faucet to the port with an appropriate tube.

Thanks, I was wondering about the velcro part.

hello, could you do one for the wider type of keg :) i really love your idea and wish to print it

According to instructions "If you have the wider keg, please, measure the dimensions and post a comment"
He doesn't have that keg size so he needs the dimensions...

I measured my used pinlock (Coca-Cola) keg and found it to be about 220mm across. But I imagine there's enough of a margin to make things fit well enough anyway, so I'm currently just printing the original. I'll let you know how it works out.

Result: It's just a little bit short, but it rests on the sides of the keg, so velcro/similar ties should still be able to secure it.

A bigger problem for my Coca-Cola style keg is that I found no really good orientation of the device:

I found no:

  1. "handles" that are opposite each other.
    ("handle meaning any opening in the black rubber part so that there is a space underneath a bridged part, where you would grab the ring)
    AND at the same time:
  2. The unit not obstructing either gas or liquid posts.

Here is an image showing the problem: The only orientation that has openings at opposite ends from each other are those that obstruct the post:
