might just be better off pushing it down ito the mash and pushing the lid down over the wire.
I know some people have had issues with moisture gettting in the probe of some digital thermometers (wireless and remote read). Baking it usually fixes it.
I don't see permanently affixing it being a good idea. Other than interfering with mixing the mash, variances in the mash temps makes it not worth the trouble.
