    Default Fridge baskets rattling when driving

    Hi Guys

    I have my National Luna permanently installed in my Fortuna and the plastic baskets rattle around allot when driving as they are normally empty and the noise is driving me mad. Before i take the baskets out when not being used, have you guys come up with an idea to stop them rattling around when driving?

    Many thanks

    Adhesive foam rubber tape as per SinWolf would be the best solution. But rather stick onto the fridge where the basket steps are.

    The huge range in temperature the baskets have to deal with will not allow for a tight fit. You are asking for the impossible.
    Put some stuff in there.

    Get some water pipe for mist sprayers (black) or clear plastic as used for fish tanks. Split it and put it over the wires. Snowmasters come out with pieces of white plastic that as such on the bottom of the baskets which prevents scuffing the finish. I also keep and use a piece of high density foam to separate frozen goods from cold goods if I only need one freezer. That is also very effective.

    Some of the NL plastic baskets are known to shrink/expand (due to moisture?)
    Having said that, can you not determine where the surfaces touch - scuff. abrasion marks perhaps? that will determine you cure. Otherwise you may end up sticking those foam strips all over - and tey do tend to deteriorate given time an moisture. And may prove to hinder the cleaning of the baskets - or remain unhygienic.
