Securing microwave ?

Ok all you clever guys & gals
Does anyone have a simple / clever way of securing your microwave inside a cabinet don't want to reinvent something that probably has been done a million times
While our microwave is inside a cabinet ... I have noticed it shifts around
Looking for ideas
This great group always comes up with something
Thanks in advance

I put a heavy rubber mat under our microwave. It is the full size of the cabinet

The best way to keep a microwave oven from getting damaged while traveling is leave it on counter at home.

In fact, leave the entire camper at home.. that way its safe. Come on guy, why do you reply if you have nothing constructive to say? (not just here either). I left this forum once out of frustration, hope I don't give up on it again.

Anyway, back to the question.. here and here are few ideas.

My microwave sat so low in the cabinet space that the microwave door hit the bottom on the cut out. I built a platform out of pegboard with rubber feet on the bottom, the size of the cabinet bottom .(The pegboard allows air circulation.)
I took some wooden trim and framed in a space the size of the microwave on the top . I can now get the door open and the microwave stays in place maintaining air space on the sides and in the rear. We tried a rubber mat but the microwave still moved a bit but it would be an easier solution. Leaving your microwave at home is another simple solution but not one that I would accept .
We like having a microwave , bathroom / shower , A/C , Television
DVD ,furnace ,refrigerator etc but to each their own.

Mine is secured with screws into the front feet, another way is to buy a nylon belt/strap and screw that to the cabinet floor with the strap over the microwave.
One very important hint....
Do not transport with the plate in place. The glass plate will bounce and flatten the little plastic wheels on the carousel. It will then make obnoxious squealing noises. You can put a thick hand towel under it or take it out altogether.

I cut a thin board with holes drilled to math the placement of the front feet of my microwave. This was screwed down to the shelf to keep it from moving horizontally.
I then cut a small board to fit over the top of the oven and attached it with screws through the sides of the shelf vertical sides. This keeps it from going up and down.
Kept in place up and down, side to side, front to back and it is there until I unscrew the top hold down board.

you can also jaz it up with a microwave frame for about $18.00 at camping world. I think Casita or Scamp have brackets for attaching the micro to the shelf in the cabinet. Just search Microwave frame at camping world site Good luck. Carl
