Is it secure enough you can go down the road with the carafe in it?
We solved the problem of having to store away stuff by clipping a fence around both our counter top and the table when we're traveling,.... I realize the changes I've made does make that easy for us to do, but I believe the basic idea of putting a protective fence around those areas could be accomplished in one way or another on other configurations as well ,.... we don't remove anything from either for traveling, those two have become areas where we actually can put things when getting ready to travel,.... the fence pieces are cut from 5" vinyl post, clipped into place for travel and removed when we get there,.... just something to think about that might work better, cheaper, and easier than replacing your coffee maker,... for us, its certainly better than the trouble and worry of packing away stuff every time we move,...
