Thanks Wes

Unfortunately it doesn't look like the baskets will work with the 63Qt Edgestar though - At least not as designed

I measured and the fridge measures 13.75" between the inside outer edges, 12.5" between the inside inner edges (the basket tabs would sit on that 1.25" space or lip)

Narrowest points would be on the basket itself between the sides and even that measurement is 12" between the sides.

I guess if a person really wanted to they could still use the basket (large one, the 63Qt Edgestar already has a smaller and shallower basket on one end) and just set it down in there on top of whatever is below. That might not work so bad assuming you have and even layer of whatever underneath the new "upper" basket

I received mine today and I'm not really impressed witht the fit. My lid contacts the baskets before closing and I have to force the lid down with the clamp. It appears to seal completely but for something labeled as a direct fit it really does not seem so. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

I have the Engel 45 for the record.

Edit: I was doing something wrong. I had the green thing under my main basket. I removed that and put it in the bottom of main basket. Now accessory baskets fit without issue.

For you Edgestar owners...I emailed them with a suggestion to make something similar for the Edgestar fridges...I actually got an email back stating they liked the idea and would look into it. We'll see if they ever do.

I ordered a set about three weeks ago and nothing yet. I guess free shipping means using the mules or ????

Figures I complain about the shipping and they show up today I did not know that they are an actual Engel product. I thought somebody just made them for different fridges.

Tried them out and they fit great, now we will have a whole new way of packing

Thanks again Wes for this great inexpensive find. Now if you can find an inexpensive slide I would be set.....................oh and a cover.
