    Switch rack mounting brackets

    Stupid question, but does anyone know where I can get hold of the mounting brackets for switches? As we've had a few gone missing over the years.I've tried the manufacturers and ebay, also they aren't standard mountings across manufacturers

    You'd have to either speak to the manufacturer of that particular device, or speak to a fabrication company to make some for you.

    Thanks chaps

    Zak - the screw holes are different on the Cisco ones and I'm using netgears, thanks anyway

    I might ask the D+T chaps to see if they can knock any up, then again they can't even cut wood straight so...

    Try these FSMS400 for £17.60 from Comms Express. http://www.comms-express.com/pd1940017343.htm?defaultVariants=search0_EQ_Grey_A ND_{EOL}&categoryId=130

    They do 1/2/3U varieties with different depths.

    I once had some knocked up by the CDT department. Worked a treat.

    I have a stock of old ones from ditched switches but only one set of Netgear ones and I'd like to keep hold of those just in case I end up in the same situation as you .

    If you get stuck just use a 1U shelf.
