Note - The slide rail assemblies are different for the T5140 and T5240 servers. The removable mounting bracket of the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5140 rail slides 13 in. (33 cm) out of the slide rail, then locks in place. The removable mounting bracket of the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5240 rails slide 14 in. (35.5 cm) before locking.
Each slide rail assembly consists of a three-section slide rail and a removable mounting bracket.

4 Rear section
The front, middle, and rear sections form the slide rail. The middle and rear sections have holes for mounting screws, 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 in. (35.5 cm) out of the slide rail, then locks in place. If you unlock the mounting bracket at this point, it slides an additional 12 in. (30 cm) before separating from the slide rail. You can then mount the mounting bracket to the right or left side of the server chassis.
There are a total of five locks in a slide rail assembly. Four are on the mounting bracket. One lock is on the front section of the slide rail. Installing the Servers in a Rack describes the uses of these locks.
