i know all about the barproducts one already.

i want cheap and easy to attach. I was thinking of the mud pan with magnet setup. However, this looks like an option as it has magnets already

I would be careful of the screwdriver holders. They appear to be good for clothes snagging and falling into.

i have my faucets on the side of my keezer so it's not in a path of walking. although i just saw HF has a mud pan for 5 and those welder magnets for $2 each so it's about the same price.

it's magnetically attached so it can be knocked off, etc. I got 2 little kids and they'll try to climb it or hit it. But it's cheap enough that if some paint gets chipped off and the base metal (of the tray) rusts it's no biggie.

Looks like a good cheap drip tray. I used a stainless grill smoker box which I got at lowes for $10 and epoxied some magnets on there it works great. You could get a bar mat and cut it to fit in there so the spilt beer has somewhere to drain.
