Default Quick Better Bottle measurement needed

Can someone tell me how tall a 6 gallon Better Bottle is with a cap and hose on it?

I measured mine a few months ago with an airlock on it because I was looking at chest freezers. I seem to recall it was about 22 inches tall, so I figured I needed 24 inches clearance. I'm not at home, though, so I can't confirm it right now.

Thanks. That's what I needed. I'm also looking at chest freezers. I'm tired of my manual defrost upright.

Just measured my freezer. I have 61cm (~24 inches) of height, and a 6 gallon Better Bottle with an airlock fits but is a tight squeeze unless the bung and/or airlock is pushed in quite a bit.
