This. Take off the vent thing, then push the tap in which knocks the red middle into the keg the same way as the grey bungs. I have a red and black bung that has been reused in this way 4 times.

Looks like you can screw a co2 bulb into it to add co2

I think it's a pressure release valve to stop you overriding your kegs.

Yea that seems to be the one. Does it just stop over-carbonation? Has anyone else used one of these?

I think (some) commercial ones are different, but the black/red bungs you get with easykegs from Brew UK and Leyland can certainly be reused.

I've got a bag of them somewhere but never thought of using them with the tap, have always used the grey ones.Are they as easy as the grey ones to get in and out of the keg?

A bit more work but easy enough.
