Can someone shed some light on the 9/16 and 19/32 description on the corny ball lock posts. What do these numbers mean. The 2 posts look identical on the website images.

Thanks for the keg info. I still have one keg that I can't find a post for. I have 10 kegs and they all seem to be different.

I somehow ended up with a liquid tube that was to long for the keg, I still haven't been able to figure out how I did that.
