Anchor/Leveling Device for RISC 60000/Systems

      Disclosed is a device that allows a computer rack system to be
leveled on an uneven floor and anchored permanently to that floor
meeting the requirements for earthquake situations in
telecommunication complexes.

      The leveling capabilities are required because there is a
standard rack layout grid for all telecommunication complexes.  The
device allows the systems, which can exceed 1000 pounds, to be placed
close together and parallel to eahc other on an uneven floor.

      The anchoring device is needed so that the system will not move
or tip during an earthquake or tremor.  This device must withstand
100 pound forces applied at the top of the rack from different
directions at different times.  The device also has different hole
mounting patterns that can be used when steel reinforcing bar in the
concrete is encountered during sustem installation.
