    So I mixed up my ball lock valves on a korny keg like a complete noob in a rush getting ready for a party and now as you can imagine they are stuck. I have read on here that people have used pliers to get them off when they are stuck like this but I can't understand how pliers would help me at all right now. If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

    a spark plug socket might work...

    Not sure how a wrench might be employed. My one experience with this issue ended by simply wrestling it off. In my case, nothing broke. I understand many have not been as lucky.
