Attaching the rack mount brackets

Perform the following steps to attach the rack mount brackets.

  1. Position the right rack mount bracket next to the right side of the device, as shown in the following figure.
  2. Attach the right rack mount bracket to the device using two slotted-head 8-32 x 3/8 in. screws. You can use either the regular rack mount bracket or the alternate rack mount bracket. Be sure to be consistent on both sides of the device.

    For recessed mounting, you can use the back rack mount brackets on the front instead of the left and right rack mount brackets.

  3. Tighten the screws to a torque of 15 in-lbs (17 cm-kgs).
  4. Repeat these steps for the left rack mount bracket.
