Ok I just built my first keezer ( well for the most part ) ...... I'm at the point that I will be attaching the collar to the freezer base.... I will be using small angle cleats as a reenforcment to whatever adhesive I use. And that is wherein my question is... what type of adhesive are most of you all using ? I walked through my local Lowes and I see adhesive caulking for tile/tub - wood-wood platic-plastic but obviously we are going from wood to plastic so what are we using here ? If you know the brand / model / specific name that would be a huge plus. Thanks in advance for your help.

I just used window and door caulk. Put a nice bead around the top of the freezer and set the collar on and applied a bit of weight to set it evenly. Worked fine.

I used one bead of liquid nail, and one bead of silicon for a good seal. Have zero issues what so ever..

I used good ole clear silicone caulk, for mine i used 2 tubes like a 1/4 inch bead all around, my lid is attached to my collar and I have picked up my keezer while holding onto the collar. It didn't budge that stuff is stronger than it looks.

I used a closed cell foam seal just a camper top on a pickup truck. I didn't fasten it to the freezer at all. It has a1/2" overlap all the way around and 1/8 clearance for size. It just sits on top and the lid hinges bolt to the wood collar. It works great. I was prepared to glue it down somehow, but gravity is all I needed...

I wouldn't seal it unless I had to. Then I would use silicone caulk and keep it removable in case it was absolutely necessary. Just pressure/gravity fit it. Self adhesive weatherstripping would be good.

Weather sealing went through my mind as well but what would keep for example a 4 year old from pulling it off the freezer body if he got interested in pulling on the collar ?

I just put on mine with weatherstripping and a bracket in the back. Honestly, I don't think it even needs the bracket in the back. The weatherstripping has crazy amounts of friction. I was lucky I placed it in the right spot on the first try because I couldn't even move it without pulling it straight vertically off first.
