10# won't sit on the hump without a collar. It's 18.5" from the top of the hump to surface where the lid gasket sits. You have about another 1/2" of clearance above that (due to gasket thickness), but clearly not enough for a 10#er.

sad but true. with my regulators attached to my 5#, I have less than an inch of clearance with the lid closed.
I bet angled at about 60degrees it would fit. You can bungi it to the fence that seperates the hump from the rest of the freezer.

I have decided to pass on this freezer. I went last night to look at one in person and was not impressed by the size. I will be looking at some 8.8 cu ft freezers at Sears either tonight or tomorrow.

I ordered mine Sunday night, and it arrived today. $20 shipping. I am pleased. I can get working on the door while I wait for my tower to arrive. Borrowed a 2.5" drill saw bit from work, so I should be able to knock this out pretty quickly.
