The label on the bottom, when I bump them, I write the new fw in with a sharpie.
Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...

Bolts? Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I thought that too, but over the years in working in the gov't sector, I have seen some pretty inventive things.

Plug in a display module and power it up. It's the only way to know for sure.

Yeah I was referring to the lack of thru-holes to do such a thing without constructing some kind of cage or bracket. We've created a "trough" out of L-channel and used velcro to keep it from bouncing out on speed bumps. Not ideal.

I've seen quite a few installs with L brackets bolted to the side of the rack charger an then bolted down.
