Install the system in the rack


• If you are installing more than one system, install the first system in the lowest available position in the rack.

Never pull more than one component out of the rack at a time.

Because of the size and weight of the system, never attempt to install the system in the slide assemblies by yourself.

1.Pull the two slide assemblies out of the rack until they lock in the fully extended position. Lift the system into position in front of the extended slides (see below).

2.Place one hand on the front-bottomof the system and the other hand on theback-bottomof the system.

3.Tilt the back of the system down while aligning the back shoulder screws on the sides of the system with the back slots on the slide assemblies.

4.Engage the back shoulder screws into their slots.

5.Lower the front of the system and engage the front and middle shoulder screws in their slots (the middle slot is just behind the yellow system release latch). When all shoulder screws are properly seated, the system locking mechanism at the front of each slide assembly clicks and locks the system into the slide assembly.
