    Looking for a rail kit for a Dell GK545 15″ Rack Console. Bought the console but did not come with rails for mounting in 4 post rack.

    Unfortunately, we don’t offer a good solution for racking the GK545. Dell doesn’t sell the rails separately unless you can find one through Dell’s spare parts division. You might also try ebay. We have a 1U Universal Rail Kit that will mount the GK545 on a 4Post Rack, but the device will not operate as intended. So, we don’t recommend using it.
