Default Keezer Drip Tray

Wanted to attach a drip tray to the side of my keezer with out drilling into the freezer walls and possible damaging the coils. I also wanted to be able to easily remove it so I could clean it. This is what I came up with

I gorilla glued 4" l brackets to the freezer

I used 4 2" block magnets that attached themselves to the brackets

I places the bottom part of the drip tray on top of the magnets

I cut (2) 4" lengths of metal and put them inside the tray lined up with the magnets so they would hold the tray securely to the brackets/ fridge

Then the grate on top for a functional clean look.

The drip tray is a 19 1/2" x 4"
I ordered it from barproducts.com for about $20

Rare earth magnets also do a great job of holding the brackets to the fridge/freezer body to support drip trays. I have each bracket (three on my curved fridge door) held in place by one of these magnets... "Pulling Force - 18 lbs" says it all... Plus, the brackets completely hide the magnets from view. I've put a 23oz glass of brew on the drip tray without it even flinching. I don't pour more than one glass at a time, nor do I use growlers. I suspect, though, that this setup would easily handle either.

One of the benefits of the magnets is you can easily move the tray up/down as you want/need. So if you want to pour into pint glasses, you can optimize the height there. If you want to go into taller glasses, or growlers, you can move it. You can then move it back to the height you use most.

For me on the textured freezer the magnets didn't give me a whole lot of strength and I often fill growlers to bring to party's and friends. So the epoxy mount worked best.
