Installing the bezel and handles

The system ships with the bezel and handles separate from the chassis. The bezel covers the front panel drives and controls. The handles let you pull the system drawer out of the cabinet once it is installed.

To install the handles and the bezel:

1Attach each handle to the sides of the chassis with two screws provided with the handles.

Important The handles are not interchangable. The oval slots that secure the system drawer to the cabinet are on the outside edges of the handles and should be placed at the top of the system drawer.

2 Installation

2Align the four pins on the bezel through the four holes in the handles and press the bezel firmly into place.

To install the system drawer side rails:

1Remove the system drawer side rails from the cabinet mounting rails by pressing the retention clips on the inside of the system drawer side rails, then sliding the rails off.
