Uninstall the PTX10001-36MR

Remove the PTX10001-36MR from a Rack or Cabinet

Before removing a PTX10001-36MR from a rack:

Here’s what you’ll need to relocate the PTX10001-36MR:

  • Two people. One to hold the rack while the other one removes the screws.

  • Screwdriver appropriate for your rack-mounting screws.

If you need to relocate an installed PTX10001-36MR, use the procedure described in this topic. (The remainder of this topic uses “rack” to mean “rack or cabinet.” )


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 remove a PTX10001-36MR from a rack:

  1. Have one person support the weight of the device while another person uses the screwdriver to remove the front mounting screws that attach the chassis mounting brackets to the rack.
  2. Remove the PTX10001-36MR from the rack.
  3. Use the screwdriver to remove the mounting screws that attach the mounting blades attached to the rear of the rack.
  4. Place the removed screws and rear mounting blades in a labeled bag. You will need them when you reinstall the chassis.
  5. Transport the PTX10001-36MR to the new location.
