Wall mount kit for 24 port switch??

Postby dbaresrc » Sat Sep 19, 2020 2:18 pm

We received our 24 and 8 port switches this week. I just finished installing several pairs of 8 port units. A piece of cake.

I have a question about the 24 port switch however. Unlike the 8's there is no wall mount option, just rack mount. Anyone have a good suggestion on how to mount these on a wall?

Thanks

The 24-port switch may need air space above and below to dissipate the heat, especially if it supplying power for a lot of WAPs. Just guessing, though.

You could use a couple of vertical pieces of nylon or metal pipe strap and screw it to the wall above and below the switch. Of course, being careful not to block any ports or vents in the process.

Another way is to use some industrial strength Velcro on the back.

Thanks for the answers. I found something that I think will work. Secure mounting, plenty for air flow, etc. https://www.startech.com/en-us/server-m ... rk119wallv
