Default Breqmeter in a Rubbermaid cooler

I want to add a Bilchman Brewmometer to my 10 gallon Gatorade (Rubbermaid) cooler.

I got the cooler used, so there is already a hole which appears to be about 1/2 inch in the center front of the cooler. I am concerened that the weldless brewmometer does not have enough threads to span the thickness of the cooler. Do I need to add a bulkhead to the cooler to add either the 1/2inch NPT or weldless version of the Bilchman Brewmometer?

Weldless Brewmometer


1/2 Inch NPT Brewmometer


Bulkhead



I have read THIS thread, but want something a little more professional

Just read http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/remote-probe-thermometer-wort-proofing-26905/

And will concider this method, after seeing some of the issues with the probe thermometers in the wall of a cooler..... What is the best way to close the hole in the side of the cooler?
