Default Calling all Frigidaire 7.2 cu. ft. freezer owners!

I need some measurements. Or anyone with a freezer that's 34 1/4" high and 23 1/4" deep. I'm planning on buying 2 of these to go against the back wall of my brew shed, which is behind the bar area. I also plan on hanging a 42" lcd on the back wall. So I need to know how high the lid is when opened. And also how many inches away from the wall the lid comes when fully open. It would be embarrassing to open the lid of my freezer and smash my tv.

I tried going to Lowes to measure, they were out of that freezer. Thanks in advance for your help.

I'ts not my intention to hijack, but while questiones are being asked about the 7.2cu chest freezer I'd like to throw one in...

Will the frigidaire 7.2cu chest freezer fit two 6gal better bottles w/o modification?

Thanks and sorry!

can I piggy back too? I hear that this model no longer can fit 4 5 gallon kegs on the floor. Is this true? I am buying one too.
(love the brew shed!)

Do you think it is possible to get two 6 gallon BB in one with a collar or modification?

How many kegs can you fit on the floor? Did you build a collar? How many can you fit with the collar?
Thanks!

I have a 6" collar and designed my keezer to fit 3 5 gallon ball lock cornies on the floor, and then one 3 gallon keg and my 5# CO2 tank on the hump. I never thought to check and see if I have enough height to fit another 5 gallon cornie on the hump. I am at work right now so I can't go verify whether it would fit or not. But sitting here thinking about it I believe it would be pretty close.

Thanks. I read somewhere that you need an 8 inch collar to fit ball lock cornies on the hump. Not sure though. I wonder when they changed this model, people used to get 4 cornies on the floor.
