Shank Replacement Parts
Despite being a generally reliable piece of draft beer equipment, shanks sometimes need replacement parts too. After all, they are responsible for holding together a very important part of the draft beer system where the beer line meets the faucet, and you certainly wouldn’t want to have anything leaking down there.

Parts of a Beer Shank Assembly
A typical beer shank consists of the following parts (may slightly differ depending on the beer shank type):
- Shank sleeve - locks and secures the faucet into the shank
- Shank collar - locks and secures the faucet into the shank
- Shank teeth - seal the shank into the faucet
- Shank wall flange - gives our shank mount a more professional look
- Shank hex nut - used to lock the shank into place
When choosing a beer tower shank assembly, you need to look out for the bore size of the shank - in order to match it with the beer hose size that you’re planning to use (the standard variations are 3/16’’ and ¼’’).
How Does a Beer Shank Work?
In addition to generally connecting the beer line to the faucet, beer shanks are also responsible for the following:
- Providing a place to attach the beer line
- Providing an attachment point for the faucet
- Providing a channel for the beer to flow through the system from the kegerator to your point of dispensing
- Providing a conductive mass to help maintain the temperature of the beer as it flows through the shank
