The mounting brackets have multiple mounting holes and can be rotated
allowing for a wide variety of mounting options. These include mounting the
switch so its front face is flush with the face of the rack, or mounting it in a
more balanced position as shown in the illustration.
Use a #1 Phillips (cross-head) screwdriver and attach the mounting
brackets to the switch with the included 8-mm M4 screws.
