Thats the best idea of mounting a drip tray i've seen. I still need to put a proper one in as I'm using a bathroom shelf that holds on with suction cups. Whilst it holds three full beers, isn't going anywhere and drains it looks Fugly!

Your way I can ahere the wood to the keezer and the drip tray just slides in and out.

Brilliant!

And I've got three taps and you up me by having four! Ahhh that hurts even more LOL

LOL! And I have room for a 5th tap that will work with the tray! Thanks for the thumbs up I am pleased with it also! I made the brackets myself out of some scrap birch and just used some Dutch oil on them. The way I mounted them without tearing up the inside of the door was to insert two screws into the door for each bracket. I screwed them in about 1/2" into the door and left the remaining 1" exposed. I then drilled out two holes on the back of each bracket that the screws then slid onto. I then just used a little gorilla glue on the back of the brackets and in the screw holes and taped it in place until it dried and it was done. I put a 10lb weight on the tray and it didn't even flinch! And the tray slides in and out perfectly.


PS. If anyone uses this method remember gorilla glue expands! Just a little will due.

Great minds are thinking alike Mine is very similar but I went for a more "floating" approach. Kind of hard to see in the pix but the tray is about 3" away from the fridge door. There are setscrews underneath that fix the tray in place so it can be easily removed for cleaning.
