Abstract

Many cabinets containing electronic equipment are extremely heavy. Further, the inside spacing between a bottom wall support plate and electronic equipment installed in the cabinet may be limited. It is usual practice to install cabinet leveling studs after the cabinet has been completely assembled during installation. Some installations require the leveling pad to be rigidly attached to the bottom of the cabinet through blind holes. Accordingly, a leveling stud is needed which is easy to insert into a blind hole and distribute the tear out stresses evenly on the support plate in the event of side loads. This is achieved even with limited space inside the cabinet.
