Misaligned Rack Rail Mounting Screw Holes

Keith from Pine, CO on 7/20/2022

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The panel is good for having 8 decora unit knockouts and so cheap & in stock! However the other reviews were unfortunately correct - the actual rack rail mounting screw holes are not aligned right and make the panel sit offset of standard rack unit sizes. Bummer :/ Luckily in my case this happened to be a pace holder until another 4 decora device panel came in on back order from another source. But beware if you actually need it to fit between other rack gear in exactly 3RU without over hanging into a 4th rack space. The measurements for the actual decora spaces and their mounting hole were perfect. I find it rather peculiar that what I'd consider the "easy" part is what they manage to mess up?

Pros: * 8 Decora Devices * Cheap * In stock / decent shipping times

Cons: * Rack rail mounting holes do not line up with standard rack rail screw hole pattern. Likely a deal-breaker for most circumstances.

Perfect Fit

Carl from Suffolk, VA on 4/21/2022

Have no idea what the other reviewers are talking about the cutouts were a perfect fit for decora controls and the mounting screws lined up perfectly with my rack. Glad I ignored the other reviewers.

The holes are not in the standard location. They did not line up with a Tripp lite rack. Decora squares did not line up. I had to sand down the inserts to get them to fit in to this plate

Daniel from Hackettstown, NJ on 1/21/2019

I can't believe an engineer got paid to design this. The #1 issue is that the holes do not line up with U spacing. Problem #2 is the screws that came with it are too small to hold anything. I ended up redrilling everything and using my own hardware.
