Description

  • Designed specifically for mounting the NukaTap Mini Beer Faucet on any kegerator, keezer, cold room wall, or other flat surface
  • Connect beer line directly to the faucet, reducing the amount of temperature loss to a standard draft shank
  • No spinning faucets. Your tap will remain in a fixed orientation once locked into the collet
  • Easy installation. No need to drill a large hole through your fridge to accommodate a standard 5/8" draft shank
  • Use with 6.35 mm OD EVABarrier draft tubing

This shank kit is specifically designed to suit the NukaTap Mini Beer Faucet and will allow you to connect the NukaTap Mini to a cooler box, kegerator, keg fridge, cold room wall or any other flat surface.

This wall mount shank kit is for use with 6.35 mm OD EVABarrier. For the shank kit for use with 8 mm OD EVABarrier, see here.

New Innovative Shank Design 
Unlike other shank kits, this kit doesn't use a bulky 5/8" threaded shank. The issue with a standard draft shank is that acts as a heat sink, and due to the fact that most shanks sit inside an insulated wall, this results in a substantial amount of warm beer coming out of the tap before cold beer starts flowing. This results in substantial "first pour foam" effect which wastes beer, can result in sour beer, and ultimately negatively effects the quality of the beverages being served. This new design has the beer line feed all the way directly up to the back of the faucet, greatly reducing the volume of non-refrigerated beer.

No Spinning Shanks
If you have ever installed a traditional 5/8" long shank, you will know how frustrating it is when you use the faucet and it starts rotating. This new design of shank alternative uses three screws that lock the tap into a fixed position and prevents the taps from rotating. If you loosen the 1/2" stainless tap collet you can still have the flexibility to rotate the faucet to any orientation, but once the collet is tight, interlocking teeth on this shank kit and the NukaTap Mini will hold the tap permanently in the correct orientation. 

Easy Installation
Another advantage compared to standard shanks is that this kit doesn't require you to drill a large 3/4"-1" hole through the wall. As no shank is required, only a hole large enough to accommodate the beer line is required. As a result, an 8mm (5/16") conventional drill bit is all that is necessary for installation. However, if you are concerned about the small amount of beer sitting in the draft line inside the wall not being refrigerated, you can also shell out a larger diameter of foam on the inside of the wall to allow cold air to circulate around the beer line thus reducing the non-refrigerated beer in the line even more. If you wanted to do this the Step Drill Bit is the best tool for the job.

Any Wall Thickness
Other shank kits will require you to purchase a specific length shank for a specific wall thickness. This new shank alternative will fit any wall thickness. If you have wall thicknesses that are less than 2.7" thick then you can use the included screws that have "snap off" points so you can simply cut the screws down to the desired length. However, if the wall is thicker than 2.7" you can simply purchase a conventional screw from the hardware store and screw the shank kit to your wall. If the substrate is firm enough you may not even need to go all the way through the wall so a common 1-1/4" long screw may be all that is required.
