When you remove multiple devices from a rack, remove the device at the top of the rack first and proceed to remove the rest of the devices from top to bottom to avoid toppling the rack.

Here’s the parts and tools you’ll need to relocate the PTX10003:

  • Either a mechanical lift or two persons to support the weight of the PTX10003. An additional person is needed to remove the screws securing the router to the rack.

  • Screwdriver appropriate for your rack-mounting screws.
