Quartermaster P.S.A. — Hand tighten keg posts fully before wrenching it on!
This is what happens when you accidentally cross thread a keg post and fight for 30 minutes trying to remove it.
Apparently some variations of kegs you see on websites have the threaded male side welded at an outward angle and can be easy to snap when trying to get a cross threaded keg post off. Sigh.
