JUST AN FYI: While we do not convert pin lock to ball lock kegs, many of the kegs in this height are starting to show up as converted pin locks.

After receiving the keg I noticed the lid was original to a pin lock and has never been replaced for a manual pressure release valve lid. The new ball lock post for in/out were present but after a quick snugging of the posts pressure was unattainable. Therefore this unit was never pressure tested as described on the website. I contacted customer service and a representative responded the next day did offer to send new replacement keg. I believe the keg is in good enough condition to hold pressure and simply requested a new/used manual pressure release lid. AIH rep said they would send replacement lid and missing Whirlfloc tablet (damaged shipping packaging) out to me. It has been 8 days and I've not received any replacement items from AIH.
Your contact comment indicates that AIH fulfilled my order 14 days ago - no AIH sent a keg I can't use 14 days ago - that's not fulfilling an order. BTW I sent a picture of the non functional keg to customer service.
Came with the wrong lid without a manual vent. I contacted AIH and they rushed me out the correct lid with vent !! Can't beat their customer service !! Great people to deal with !! The keg itself was easy to clean and had no issues with residue on the rubber. It looked stained but does not come off. Working well and I am already serving beer out of it !
I received the keg dirty as expected - I tore it down and cleaned & sanitized. There was some tape on the handles that left a very sticky residue that I haven't been able to get off yet after a lot of cleaning. When I went to connect the liquid disconnect for the first time after I had already pressurized a new beer, the Quick Disconnect (QD) wouldn't snap on (yes, it was the right post and QD). I tried everything... pushing VERY hard, lubing the post, spraying the QD and post with StarSan, swapping the O-Ring, even swapping the poppet since I ordered this with fresh O-Rings and poppets, just in case. Nothing worked. I had to order new posts from Amazon ($20), and that fixed the issue immediately. I like to order used kegs to save money and don't care what they look like since they sit in a keezer, and I don't mind having to pay a few extra bucks for new O-rings, but I do expect the posts to work with standards ball lock QDs. All-in-all, I would order again, but I would test out the posts & QDs as soon as I got it (live & learn). My keg's height including a Gas QD which sticks up slightly above the handles is 23.5" - perfect to fit on the shelf in my keezer which has 24" clearance to the lid.
Just as advertised. I had to rinse out old syrup residue, but keg holds pressure nicely. Most importantly, it fits inside my chest freezer without the need for a collar. These are great kegs for the price. Now if I only had a bigger chest freezer I'd have an excuse to buy more of these kegs!
Just as promised. Soda inside, easy to clean out. Held pressure, with lots of new hardware.
