Packaging

How many are there in a pack?


Rackstuds™ are available in 4, 20, 40 and 100 packs in both Red 2.2mm and Purple 3.2mm.
Rackstuds™ are sold in two form factors; a vertical plastic bag that can be hung on a pin board with 20 sets (enough for five pieces of equipment), and 100 sets (25 pieces of equipment ) in a sliding zip lock bag that is van friendly. With the Series II launch, we’ve also introduced a 40-pack combo bag that contains 40 sets of both colours/sizes. Learn more: https://www.rackstuds.com/products





Strength

How strong are they?


We have tested Rackstuds™ to full breaking strain at over 150 kgs/330 lbs (per stud). The maximum equipment weight is 20 kgs/44 lbs across all four studs. This is to offer a satisfactory safety margin.
If you intend mounting shelves that are attached both front and rear,
increasing the weight limit would not be an issue.

Can I transport my rack with the equipment pre-installed?


No. We’ve tested the studs by simulating a 1,400 km truck journey to MIL specification STD-810G Method 514.6. Subjecting the Rackstuds™ to constant vibration over time will weaken them and eventually cause them to fail. If you must transport the racks populated with gear, ensure that the rear of the equipment is supported. If you prevent the rear of the equipment from bouncing up and down, transportation should not be an issue. See our vibration test video to learn why we don’t recommend transporting a populated rack even if you use cage nuts. Do you really want to subject your expensive IT equipment to that punishment?

Will the threads eventually wear down?


If you install the Rackstuds™ correctly on their side, you will notice flats on the top and bottom so there is actually no thread cut where the gear would drag.
This will prolong their life-span.

Surely plastic isn’t strong enough?


The Rackstuds are made from Grivory™, no ordinary plastic. It is often used as a metal replacement found in car door handles and wiper blade arms that are subject to extreme force and temperature ranges. If you flex the spring section on the Rackstud, you will see that it feels more like metal than it does plastic.
