Each slide rail assembly consists of a three-section slide rail and a removable mounting bracket.

The front, middle, and rear sections form the slide rail. The middle and rear sections have holes for mounting and adjust to fit rack depths from 24 in. (61 cm) to 36.5 in. (93 cm). The front section can be extended to allow movement of the server out of the rack.
The removable mounting bracket slides 14.5 in. (37 cm) out of the slide rail, then locks in place. If you unlock the mounting bracket at this point, it slides an additional 14.5 in. (37 cm) before separating from the slide rail. You can then mount the mounting bracket to the right or left side of the server chassis.
Note that there are six locks in a slide rail assembly. Four are on the mounting bracket. Two locks are on the slide rail.
