Hej ollej,
when I lifted a keg - with a CO2-bottle that hung from it's collar - out of my fridge, the dovetails broke and the bottle dropped. The move was neither fast, nor far. Any idea how to make the dovetails stronger?

Have you tried strengtheninh the super glue with baking soda?

Another option could be to use multiple processes when printing to have 100% infill on the dovetails.

It’s also possible to widen the back plate.

I’ll see if I can figure out a better way to connect the pieces.

Oops, I didn't glue the parts together because the fit was so tight. Will try that. And baking soda you say? Can I just sprinkle the baking soda on the glued parts?

The Dovetails are a little tight, so I had to remove some PLA to make it fit.

Thanks, I’ll look into making a version with more clearance on the dove tails.

Cool! Could you maybe also make a longer "hook", so the bottle hangs lower? I have only a little headspace above the keg, and with the current version, the CO2 bottle is far too high above the keg to fit it into my fridge.

I've uploaded new STL files with more clearance on the dove tails and also a new file with an extra long hook. Please let me know if it works better.

Thanks a lot ollej, works like a charme! Now the CO2 bottle can hang from the keg collar. You are the best!

Do you have a picture of this in use ? I have a soda stream and am curious about the hookup.
