Default Shirron Chiller - Mounting

Question for anyone that owns the Shirron Chiller...how have you gone about mounting this to your stand? I am in the process of building out my new wood stand and wanted to mount the chiller horizontally but the Shirron doesn't have any mounting brackets. Thinking that I may build a small wooden frame such that I can wedge the chiller inside the frame and then mount the frame to the stand. Wanted to know what others may be doing that have this chiller.

I don't really have a stand, but I went to Lowes and found a bracket with holes in it, and put the chiller on a wooden panel (next to my pump) and then drilled four long screws through the bracket into the panel. It's fugly, but works fine.

I'd look for a pair of these long and wide enough to just clamp that bad boy to a frame rail...

Cheers!

My stand is made out of strut channel, and the u-style beam clamps^^ would work, but I just use two small bungee cords to lash it to a horizontal bar. They hold tight and it's a snap to unhook it for cleaning.

like this idea in the short term....have a few small bungee cords lying around....may go with the u-bolt as the permanent solution.

You guys are awesome. I was looking for a way to somehow mount my plate chiller with a piece of metal with holes in it or something. This bracket solution looks a lot cheaper and simpler to use.

I don't have a stand but I used these brackets to mount my duda diesel chiller to a piece of wood to keep it in place.
