I like the idea of mounting the collar to the lid so the whole collar lifts up like these:http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/holi...keezer-240073/
(he tosses the factory lid, but similar idea)http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/my-k...-build-219659/
his collar uses a lip instead of screwing down to freezer frame
BobbyM uses a lid-mounted design seen here
I'm wondering what's the best way to attach it to my freezer. There's a lip design, screw down with L brackets, silicone/gasket, etc.
My collar's rim has an inset. this could be good or bad for resting the collar on.
My lid has the gasket. Does that get stripped off then use L brackets on the collar to the lid?
I don't plan on making the collar too high. As you can see, i already have like 6 or 7 inches of clearance (it's a deep freezer) but i want a collar for my co2 line.
You have almost the same freezer that I have.
That brown rubber lip is a bonus.
I found that it's a great surface for rope caulk to adhere to.
I made a cedar 2x8 collar & love my results.
I added a strip of stick-on neoprene foam to the top of the cedar & it works great.
My hinges have one screw into the collar & one into the original hole in the freezer.
