Ha. Wish I would've read this a couple hours ago. I already had silicone but thought it might not quite do it so I went and bought a toothpaste tube of liquid nails. Attached collar to freezer about 4 hours ago. It's already a very strong bond. I bought the little tube because the caulking gun size liquid nails was labelled differently and said it was not recommended for plastic.

Gorilla Glue for the miter joints, silicone caulk for the seal.

Titebond is the best for wood/wood connections, it is less messy then Gorilla Glue. For wood/plastic silicone or Goop works great.

I thought the same thing but a year later, I was trying to get the liquid nails off of the oak. Turns out some piano wire and prying the wood slightly makes quick work of the liquid nails.

Are you gunning for a free soda too?!?!?

Hey, if it comes off it comes off. It's a pretty common way of attaching a collar. Two years in and no problems so far. Of course, the silicon bead I ran on the inside of the collar to seal it would also have to fail at the same time. I'm certainly not going to hack it all to pieces at this point based on anecdotal evidence that it is doomed.

Not at all. I just figure in the future if someone stumbles across this thread after their chest freezer dies, they will know one way to get the liquid nails apart from the wood.

I did not use glue. Instead I added a lip to the front and back of the collar that extends about 6" in the back and 3 in the front. It's a tight fit and it is not going to move anywhere. I did add a bead of caulk to all joints. It is airtight.

Ah, I misread your original post. I thought you were saying you removed the collar from a working freezer because you had an issue with the Liquid Nails.

Personally, I'll probably just take off all the hardware and build another collar if that happens. Not sure I'm ambitious enough to rip off and recycle the old one!

I am going to put the collar on this weekend. Did you all put something heavy on top of the collar to press it down or just set it in place and let the glue do its work?
