12U 19in Desktop Open Frame 2 Post Rack

NOTE: I installed this Router on the top post placement. I would NOT RECOMMEND THIS for everyone. I installed the Router on top of the Rack so it would be easier to show you what I was doing. Please start with installing equipment from the bottom of the rack and work your way up. This will provide you with safer and easier installation.
Also, check out this link below, for proper cage nut placement.
