About the /dev/mount

The /dev/mount is an innovative cage nut alternative that holds equipment securely in place before the hex nuts are even fastened, with the ability to hold up to 15 kg (33 lbs) per rack unit.

Unlike with conventional cage nuts, no sharp edges need to be touched, and no tools are required when mounting or dismounting a /dev/mount.

Simply snap in the /dev/mount and tighten the extra-long hex nuts with your hands. These benefits ensure that IT technicians don’t hurt their finger bed with the sharp edges of conventional cage nuts, nor need any tools while simplifying and accelerating the process of device mounting.
