I have mine held on with rare earth magnets too. I had slipping problems. I tried velcro and it worked well, but people kept putting glasses and pitchers on it. I ended up epoxying some small shelf brackets under it. Now it will hold anything.

Welding magnate squares from harbor freight. Not as good looking but strong enough to hold a few full pints. The tray has a stick on strip magnet on the back to hold it on the fridge.

I think I have found the perfect solution to the slipping conundrum.

I have the same drip tray referenced in the original post. I first used epoxy to attach L Brackets to the keezer. After these brackets fell off or slipped, I order the really expensive magnets from Amazon. The magnets slipped too.

Finally, I found the solution - Indoor/Outdoor Mounting Tape - http://www.homedepot.com/p/Scotch-1-...5#.UYO5FaIqaSo

my cheap alternative, works great, magnets are strong enough to hold a pint or two while pouring, but easy to pull off and rinse the spills away....

I like this idea. It would be pretty easy to dress these up by gluing some wood or even metal to the sides to make it blend with the drip tray.

I had the same slipping problem on mine. Ended up coating the magnets in liquid plastic. They've been like that for 5 years now and are still holding. Anything that is "grippy" will keep them in place.

By liquid plastic, do you mean plastidip?

you could probably use those 3M command strips along with the magnets as well.. that would be a good combination to keep it secure but still not hurt the finish

A nice coat of Plastidip would keep the square magnets from marring the finish on the fridge. But when all else fails I am gonna just use molly bolts or expanding plastic inserts and call it good. No way I will ever convert it back to a freezer so why not make it like I want now. No slipping, easy to install, simple to remove the drip tray for cleaning, will hold a pitcher with no concern. When the keezer dies I will lose 20 cents worth of plastic inserts.... I can live with that..
