After you move the rack to the installation site, stabilize the rack to ensure it does not move or tip over when you install equipment. Use the mounting brackets or extend the leveling feet, or use both the brackets and the leveling feet.
Before you stabilize the rack permanently using the mounting brackets, you must pre-drill mounting holes as described in Preparing the Installation Site.
Obtain four bolts and washers to mount the rack to the floor. The bolt holes in the mounting brackets have a diameter of 10.0 mm. Mounting bolts are not provided, because different floors require different bolt types and strengths.
See Mounting Holes and Cable Routing Floor Cutout for the hole spacing diagram.
Figure 2-3 Securing the Rack Using Mounting Brackets
Note - The bolts required for securing the rack to the floor vary depending on the installation location. Select bolts appropriate for your location.

See Leveling Feet and Castor Dimensions for the location and dimensions of the leveling feet.
Figure 2-5 Securing the Rack Using the Leveling Feet
The four leveling feet should share the rack load with at least one other support. (See Stabilizing the Rack with Casters and Leveling Feet, or Mounting Brackets, or all Three Supports).
