Micromatic threaded design valves utilize flat gaskets rather than O’rings. Be sure that your valve is installed into a threaded neck bushing.
Threaded valve gaskets come in two styles based upon the body design of the valve.
Most Micromatic valves utilize a security latch mechanism within the valve to prevent consumer tampering. This type of ‘safety lock’ requires that a specific tool be used to remove the valve from the keg neck. Observe the top edge of the valve body and notice that there are two notches or lugs that the threaded type removal tool fits over.
Look closely at the inset photo for the letter “S” on the left lug. Examine the lugs for a possible engraved letter “S”. You may also find the letter “R” or possibly no engraving at all.
If you have a letter “s” on one of the lugs, you will need to order valve gasket # 102-337.
If you have a letter “R” or no engraving, you will need to order valve gasket # 102-379
