i would get a plastic-coated chain and wrap around the middle, then you wouldnt have to worry about scratching it or somebody pulling the hasp off. this unit sits about an inch off the ground so you may have to set it on blocks to get the chain under there.

Yes you can. Get a metal hasp, one that will attach to the front of the lid and connect to the freezer body. These run about $6 to $8 at Home Depot.
It is not advisable to screw/bolt the hasp on. Some units have the coolant coil in the walls and you might puncture it.
I suggest using epoxy or construction adhesive, also available at Home Depot.

my 6.8 doesn't have a lock or the place for a lock. In my opinion, it would be cheaper for me to buy a freezer with a lock than to try to add one to this freezer.
If you have the knowledge and tools to do such a project, there seems to be enough room in the lid for a lock.

Hi Stephen,
A lock is not available from Magic Chef, you could use a hasp and a padlock, however this will require drilling holes in the body of the freezer. Which is not recommended.

Unscrew and remove the drain cap on the exterior front of the freezer (lower left).
Place a shallow pan outside drain outlet. The defrost water will drain out.
Check the pan occasionally so the water does not overflow.

In order for the unit to be called a frost-free it would have to have a small dehumidifier installed at the factory (makes sense) the instructions says under operating your freezer. Defrosting your freezer-When? For the most efficient operation and minimum energy consumption, defrost the freezer when the frost on the freezer walls is excessive or 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick (approximately every 3 months). On a good note let me quote another part of the instructions under the freezer compartment: This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of frozen food. Storage time period is up to three months. So I would say, every three months eat all your food, defrost the freezer and fill it back up with food. The food inside will probably spoil if you do not eat it in three months. But I also run with scissors in my hand now. Read Less

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 469 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy... My freezer is very nice. Holds enough food for my husband and me. We love it. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New freezer Our old chest freezer finally had to be dumped and this one seems to be doing the job just great. It has two lights on the bottom front corner that tell you that it is plugged in and the second light if it is running at the moment. Good to know to prevent a disaster, like not being aware that the freezer had lost power. It seemed to get down to the cold temperature very quickly after starting it up and does not have to run that frequently to a maintain. The chest lid has a very good seal. I am satisfied. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by White 6.9 cu. ft. Chest Freezer Ordered online, picked up in store. There was a little confusion in the store causing a 30 minute wait. Once the very helpful associate at Customer Service found someone who was willing to retrieve my freezer, it was pretty quick. WE love our new freezer. The ONLY thing I would change is a "wrinkle" finish of the housing instead of a smooth finish, although it may be easier to keep clean. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good. I've only recently received this item but it was boxed well, had no flaws, was easy to get set up, and works great so far. I don't feel like I have to worry about it at all. August 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Give a man a fish & he feeds his family for a day,Teach a man to fish & he'll feed his family all year long We'll it's sort of like that...Freezing fruit ($1 a pound right now)& veggies while they are abundant is an easy way to save on the grocery bill......this was a gift to our kids & grandkids -to help them economize & buy food items while in season or on special. The freezer works great, with a growing family it is necessary ! Let's hope the lesson is learned. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the home brewer! I bought the Chest freezer on sale two years ago and it is still going strong as "Keezer". The Inside dimensions of this chest freezer work out to where you can just fit four ball-lock kegs and one five pound CO2 tank with regulator in it with no modifications(other than a temperature controller) needed. I successfully added a 2x10 collar, which means that I can fit six ball-lock kegs while running five taps with the addition of a false bottom(to coil beer lines under) and have the CO2 tank external. while the fit is tight, if you are looking for a compact and economic keezer build this little guy fits the bill. March 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy for small freezer I bought this to sit on my back porch to catch overflow from the house refrigerator. It is very basic with only one basket. You have to arrange items carefully or you will have to remove items on top to get to what you want on the bottom. I have had it about a month and there is a small amount of ice buildup on the walls and around the lid which others reviews have mention. It sure would be nice to have at least one more basket. I have not had any problems so far and the unit has kept all items frozen. I marked the unit down because it does not have a light in the lid so at night If I want something I have to get the flashlight, also I would have preferred a lock on the lid. Of course then they would not be able to sell it for $154.00. So Far I am very please with the unit. August 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chest freezer used as base for kegerator This is the 3rd freezer of this make and model that I've purchased. I bought the original to build a kegerator for my homebrew. The compressor quit at 3 years and the service man told me it would be much cheaper to buy a new one than to fix the broken one. Unfortunately I built a collar to fit on top of the freezer so the kegerator could hold 5 kegs and I could mount the tap handles on the collar. So I was committed to buying a 2nd freezer of the same make and model. It lasted a mere 13 months and died of the same cause as the first. So I just bought this 3rd one and am keeping my fingers crossed that the 3rd time is a charm and it will last years instead of months. Sure has been an expensive kegerator!!! It would be awesome if the company that makes this freezer sees my comments, so that is my plea to Home Depot - please share. March 29, 2016
