Default Attaching gas manifold

How do you all attach gas manifolds inside keezers with no collar? Worried about putting a screw into coils.

Glue in a wooden "sleeper", and attach the manifold to that.

This is what I did. I just used some Loctite PL90 I believe. It isn't going anywhere. They, I just screwed the manifold to the wood. Just make sure the screws aren't too long.
