ESM - installation in a rack


could someone tell me, why exactly the screw do not correspond with the screw caps in the rack mounted devices? See the picture below:


Customer asked me about possibility to stabilize the device's position, but I have no idea how to do that...

Re: ESM - installation in a rack

Hi Artek,

I was  in a similar situation as both ELM as well as the ESM appliances have this defect.As a workaround I used the normal cage nut  with the screw cap and luckily it was a proper fit for this.But to do that I had to remove both the appliances from the rack before I could place the cagenut in the rack .



Re: ESM - installation in a rack

Hi Artur,

Thank you for information. So I know I have to prepare cage nut before hardware installation.

IMHO, hardware design defect likes this one can not get fixed soon. We might have to wait for a few years...

Best regards,
