There are two sets of 4 brackets that will allow you to mount the
cable management channels in multiple ways. Each bracket set
is compatible with different racks - ensure that the brackets that
are being used are the correct brackets for the rack. In addition,
bracket sets will allow VCMs to be mounted to the front or back
of rack uprights; however, some racks can only accept mounting
to the front of the upright.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR BRACKET SET A2
1.Remove bracket set A1. Based on
the rack that is being used, determine
if the VCM will mount to the front or
rear of the upright. Front or rear mounting
will determine correct orientation of
#12-24
bracket set A2 (see page 5 for details).
Once orientation is determined, secure the
brackets (2 per each 40" section) to the VCM
by using the supplied #8-32 screws (Figure 3).
Verify bracket is securely fastened into place.
NOTE: All provided brackets must be installed
on the same side of the channel.
#8-32

holes located on either the front/back side of the rack.
3. To secure the channel section, screw the supplied #12-24
screws through the mounting bracket into the desired holes in the
equipment rack and tighten.
NOTE: Use cage nut hardware supplied with your square hole
uprights for those applications.
4. To mount the second section, carefully align the
tabs on the two sections (Figure 4) and attach
to the upright.
5. Snap the supplied covers on the
pre-determined fingers for cable security and
to maintain a clean installation.
