Yes, sorry. I was trying to think of the proper name but couldn't come up with it.

Very cool and it sounds like if you need to remove it for any reason, you wont have to worry about the silicon peeling off the finish.

So, my keezer died and I just finished building another one. I'm considering upgrading my drip tray solution using the same tray (19"). For the clamping brackets, do you actually "clamp" it on tight or do you leave it slightly loose? I'm thinking I'd like to be able to remove the tray without removing the brackets and I think that might be the solution.

Also, which brackets did you use? I see there are three different lengths, Splash, Jam, and Ara. Ara looks like it has the longest support arm. It looks long enough to hold the entire tray with basically no clamping aspect. It's hard to tell, but they might be slightly too long...

Go ahead and clamp the tray down pretty snug-- you'll still be able to pull it right out. Indeed, the ability to pull the drip tray out of the bracket for cleaning is the beauty of this arrangement.

Sorry, I'm not sure which of those brackets I used -- HD's web site descriptions suck so I can't figure it out. Mine are 3" deep, so as you can see they extend about three-quarters of the depth of the 4" drip tray.

Thanks for the info. It looks like the Ara but the backing plate looks different online than what you have. The website is saying they're not sold at any of my nearby stores. Anyway, thanks for the info. I think I might try this out.

Picked these up today. It's a brand called Mural and the model is Pelican. In case anyone's interested, they're about $8/pair.
