Gday guys

After some opinions ive got an engle 45 liter fridge that im mounting permanently onto the steel tray of my 2010 patrol Cab Chassis. Im just not sure how to go about securing it. Im thinking of something similar to fridge slide just without the slide action.

Any ideas/ thoughts??

Cheers Chris

Chris you could fit some Tie down points or eye bolts like these to the tray & loop a couple of ratchett straps over the Engel handles. The rubber feet would absorb the vibration & stop it sliding around.

hi chris
engel make a fridge lock ( no slide action ) i just bought 2 ( for my 2010 patrol cab chasis ) from bcf in brissie , $ 90 each. you will have to drill through
your steel tray to mount them . you have to change the ' feet ' on the fridge to the ones they supply - easy as . the fridge is locked in by the 4 ' feet ' & you press & hold the release button located on the left front 'foot ' lock & slide fridge forward 2 inches to remove. lock is made of plastic type material with metal brackets for the 4 ' feet ' to locate into

Hi Chris,

I have a 40l Waeco strapped down with two straps trough the handles, I am using a slider as I find it is much easier for accessing the fridge than crawling into the car all the time. Got mine of ebay and they are doing a great job. I am using the fridge everyday in summer for keeping drinks and lunch cool on site. The base of my slider is a 18mm plywood sheet with 3 strips of the same material along the two long sides and the back to stop it from sliding on the tray. Straps attach to two eye bolts one at the back and one at the front. Haven't been rough rough 4wding but had a few good trips and no dramas so far.

enjoy your Sunday

best regards
