    A friend just got a triple tap kegarator. Can't recall the brand, will try to find out.

    In the meantime, we can't get 3 kegs to fit. Is there a trick to this? I can't imagine any "retrofitting" being necessary, but there's a little "ledge" at the bottom of the door that seems to interfere with the kegs fitting. The fridge didn't come with anything to lift the keg a little over the ledge. So we're stumped.

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    Not to be too harsh, but could you imagine going onto an automotive website and asking something like, "My friend just bought a car and it doesn't run right. I don't know the make or model...but the engine hesitates".

    We can't help you without details...maybe have your friend mount a passenger-side mirror on the back wall so that the 'objects will appear smaller'?

    I didn't know if there was a generic trick. Sorry. But I have info now...
    It's a Summit SBC490.

    Forget it... just found a description of the item on Summit's website. It says it fits two 1/6 kegs or 3 Cornelius. My buddy didn't read closely enough. Thanks anyway.

    Should have bought the Haier, it holds 3.

    The Haier needs a block of wood to get the front keg over the lip on the door - you may want to give it a try before you call it quits on three commercial kegs fitting.
