    • Two technicians hold front and rear handles at both sides of the enclosure.

    • One technician protects cables from damage.

  3. To install the rails into a rack, follow the instructions that are provided in the Rail installation Guide.
  4. Ensure four handles are attached to the enclosure when moving the enclosure.
    Make sure all handle posts are secured before lifting.
