I don't have a collar, but I know some people glue some pink rigid foam insulation to the inside of the collar.
The cold air does sink though, which is a primary advantage of a chest freezer setup when you open/close it frequently.
You could always start without and add when needed. My keezers don't cycle much even when I have the lid open for several minutes.
