Dell PE2950 Rails installed in a C Shaped Upright Rack

The Dell Rapid/Versa Rails can be installed into a square or a round hole Server Rack. This is accomplished by a rotating assembly on the ends of the rails with square hooks on one side and threaded pim nuts on the other side. This is a very unique design and works with most Server Racks. However it does not work with a Server Rack that has C Channel Shaped Uprights. The rotating assembly causes an obstruction with the rear surface of the upright that prevents the Dell Rail Kit from being installed.
