Default KM Tray

I need some help with my KM Tray. I just got my KM Kafae yesterday and when I put the tray on it I have to push it down, it seems like the hole on the tray is a tad bit smaller than the top of the stem. What can I do to make it go in smoothly?

Also is there a way to keep the tray from wiggling around when it is resting on the tray plate? Some sort of mod? I could have sworn I saw a video for it but after searching I couldn't find anything.

Wait... Is it too tight or too loose now?

+1 This is the main reason I like diffusers. Magnets seem like a good choice to stabilize it more. My first thought was some self-adhesive velcro, but those could melt or burn if there is a piece of charcoal in the tray.

Yeah it was the same with my last KM I just thought there was some kind of diy mod that solved this problem. I found a small solution, I just pressed some foil around the stem and that fills the gaps and it gives it a tight fit.

yeah my km did that but I never really paid much attention to it, but I think it didn't end up being a big issue since It had an ice tray to rest on. So, uh, ice-trays for the win.

Pick up some non stick pads, the one used for carpeting or ones to stop movement for cutting boards. They come in long sheets, so you can do this for all your kms, just cut them into circles, and you'll be golden.
