Tommy's Tapper, invented by entrepreneur Tom Clark, is actually a unique device designed to efficiently and effectively seal the end of a commercial beer tap when the tap not in use.
The picture at the left shows the tapper stoppers in use.
This innovative arrangement consists of a rubber cork, stainless steel tether, snap-swivel and anchor loop. When not pouring a beer, the cork is inserted into the metal tapping spout, completely sealing it from the any foreign intruders.
When really to tap, the cork is simply removed. The attached stainless steel tether insures that the cork will always be handy for re-insertion after the pour.
The picture on the right shows the tappers at rest.
When not in use, the tapper stoppers hang freely but are always within reach due to their stainless steel tethers.
