From my experience having the plastic pieces do help a lot with preventing the cooler rotation. I am re-working my frame so it is broken down now but I plan on cutting additional ones for my dry box. I am not sure what to expect with using them on a 90 degree corner. but I will report back when I finish.
Your cooler straps could be a drop bag style.
And or use a wider 2 " + webbing.
There could be slots running the length of the bottom that could hold removable cutting board or whatever. Per MT4Runner suggestion.
You could also have a strap that goes around the length of the cooler with wide easy to use slots that would hold everything in place.
Would that stop the rotation problem ??
I like this guys (kazak4x4) set up.
This was from the groover storage thread.
This is a netting drop bag with a rigid porous bottom cut to fit and inserted.
Gives shape to your drop bag and uniform support.
Threading with the NRS slide method is a lot of work:
I just sew to the center so there is a can't be lost feature and easier to thread.
Then up and then down the other side then back over the top and down again. Its not as easy as a cam but its not in a daily use spot.
Also NRS shows a squared corner on their slides and that is getting toward a cam for bump discomfort.
