I still don't know if this thread is about glue for the collar build or glue to hold the collar to the freezer lol

I used Elmer's wood glue to build the collar. I did also drill small holes and use nails for extra strength. I drilled holes so I wouldn't cause stress on the wood.

I don't use anything to hold the collar to the freezer. I put down a strip of window or door weatherstrip and put the collar on top of that. It is air tight and it doesn't move an inch. Unless you are throwing open the lid or shaking it like crazy you shouldn't need to glue it to the freezer.

So you glued the collar to the weatherstrip?

I used Loctite clear caulk at the advice of another keezer builder

It worked great and dried clear so no signs of anything... And used it to seal seams on inside as well...
Good stuff! Much better looking than messy gorilla glue!

100% Silicone. It's more than sufficient to hold the collar on and it helps seal as well. And it can be removed later without damage to the freezer if you want to revert it back.

I put 4 kegs on top of it, one on each corner.

I think I am going to do the same. My collar is not perfectly flat so it might have a few low spots. Weatherstripping should fix that.

I had help making my collar. It fits snug and is pretty much perfect all the way around. My works well because the lip all the way around dips in so I made the collar do the same thing so it can't slide which is why I didn't need to glue it. The weatherstrip worked perfectly.

Did you guys take the rubber seal off the lid before sealing to the collar? Or just put the silicone/glue on the collar and set the lid on as is. I need to attach it so the collar comes up with the lid since I realized lifting the kegs over the collar is getting old like me.

I attached collar to base rather than to lid

But if I were attaching to lid I would prob remove rubber seal and try to put it on bottom of collar for a good seal

This represents one of reasons I chose not to do it that way
Less modifications required...

But I'm not concerned about the extra six inches of lifting the keg
