How would you mount a shelf on top of this bracket? I see product ID 8631 and I understand how you'd put it on the bottom, but don't see how you'd mount it on top of this bracket, unless you occupy 1U of space. Basically, if I have a patch panel in the topmost slot of the bracket, how would I cover it from the top?
I bought this for a 7U wall-mount bracket rack to hold home-use 4-port routers, cable modems, etc where they wouldn't be seen. It is the perfect depth (10" shelf vs 12" deep rack). It's thick. It's sturdy. It's a little heavier than I expected, but that's fine.
However, I bought it hoping to mount a 1U surge protector across the top of it. This is possible, but it only has 2 holes then for me to screw in the surge protector. Luckily I have quite a few tools, so I ended up punching and then drilling out two additional holes where they would have been if this was a 1U shelf. In other words, I now have 4 screw holes on each side, just as I would if I had installed two 1U shelves instead. This allowed me to bolt the surge protector over it.
It's easier to understand if you see a picture: http://imgur.com/U1qZs
I'd give it a 10 if it had been pre-drilled for those screws.
Nice shelf, but was surprised with the screws that came with it
The shelf fit perfectly into the 7u shelf Monoprice sells (8628). However, the screws that came with this shelf were too big. Was surprised. Luckily the 7U shelf came with plenty of screws so wasn't a big deal.
PROS: Sturdy, great shelf. Put my cable modem and couple other electronics on it.
CONS: Came with screws that were too large for the 7U wall mount bracket.
I bought this shelf to place a router and modem on for my home network install since those items were not rack mountable. I liked the construction of the shelf and it provides just the amount of space that I needed. The high lip on the front and the back of the shelf are helpful to keep things from sliding off the front or the back of the shelf. I used the screws that came with the rack because the screws that came with the shelf were the wrong size for my small rack.
