Universal poppets

Has anyone else noticed the cheaper Universal poppets eat seals...bend the dip tube lips and sometimes have not enough force to push the pin open in gas connection.
The start of the spring get bent outward as seen in pic which catches inside posts and bend the lip which then eats the seals. Cheaper to buy the expensive poppetsImageImageImageImageImageImage

Can't say I've found that happens...yet. What brand of corny are you using?

I have various makes of keg. I taught it would be handier to remove all poppets and replace with one type but better option is to use the original make poppets that are 3 times more expensive but don't cause the issues I have found. You get what you pay for.

Is there a good guide on how to remove original poppets for cleaning and getting them back in without causing them damage ?

I did a sort of (short) guide last year, but it turned into an argument for using universal poppets:



But the universal poppets you seem to have haven't been finished properly. The ones I get have the spring ends ground flat (as any spring should be). Here they are (packs of 4 poppets for two kegs): .

Thanks for that PB, my conies need a spank up, there is a big problem with cornies in my case .....................not as easy to ration out the beer when drinking at home alone, bottles much safer :)
