Q: What are installation requirements?
A: An entire kit is to be installed in any available 5.25" bay, just like installing another CD-ROM, or an old 5.25" floppy drive! Cooling is important, poor air ventilation will turn your caddy into an oven, trapping the heat from the hard drive. This is specially noted for 7200rpm drives. You want adequate air flow of fresh air coming outside from the front of the desktop computer, sucked thru the air gap of the frame and caddy, and drawn out thru the rear of the computer. The fan found inside all power supplies should be drawing air from inside the case, out thru the rear of the computer.
Q: How do I know my hard drive isn't overheating?
A: Check your computer after being powered on for 30 minutes. The hard drive is allowed to be very warm, but not hot to the point so you can't touch it. You can remove the top cover of the sled. If this still doesn't solve it, you may need to install a secondary cooling fan to draw air out of the case. Most desktop cases have space to mount extra fans. If in doubt, always purchase the removable drive with the built-in cooling fan. You can also mount harddisk cooling fans on another empty 5.25" bay on top of the mobile rack, to draw cold air to sweep across the top of the harddisk drive in the sled.
Our Creed of the Mobile Rack
"The RH, SI, and SNT series are the world's three most popular manufactured Mobile Rack. RH, SI, and SNT are available from many vendors worldwide. Buying unbranded and unpopular Mobile Racks can lead your data storage into extinction with proprietary technology. Users often make the mistake in buying unbranded and unpopular Mobile Racks, only to find out shortly that they have been discontinued, or their supplier has gone out of business. Vendors make the mistake in selling the wrong Mobile Rack to users looking for species compatiblity."
||The Mobile Rack has many names: Hard Disk Drive Rack, HDD Rack, Drive Frame, Removable Drive Frame, Removable Drive Kit, Data Transporter, Data Carrier, Data Express, Data Silo, Removable Drive Unit -- they all mean the same thing. We have almost a hundred different sku's to choose from, so chances are, we have exactly what you are looking for.
Welcome, to the Ultimate Source for Removable Drive Frames
We are the experts in Removable Storage solutions. Our buyers are Military, Government, Procurement, Schools (Colleges and Universities), Training Centers, Parts Resellers, Business, Data Centers, and the home user. The most common use of the Mobile Rack is the ability to turn any harddrive into a mobile and removable device.
You got it, your harddrive now works like an 8-track cassette, you can plug your harddrive to your pc, load and save from it, and then remove. Sure, we can use opticals and tapes, but nothing beats what a large capacity drive offers in a single "cartridge", enjoying the speeds of reading from drive and writing to it.

Pricing and Ordering
Our line of hard drive trays include many popular models used, from manufacturers that have been producing their models for many years, a wide selection of tray compatible models means you will never be stuck out in the cold with a proprietary drive sled. A common standard ensures continuous compatibility. Unlike other distributors, we do not re-catalog our stock with new SKU's, available models are in their true original SKU identifier (ie., SI-117A). If you have purchased mobile racks in the past, you can obtain the additional ones you need that have the same male and female counterparts, instead of overhauling all your computers with new mobile racks of another species.
We welcome Corporate, University & College, Government P.O.'s, GPC Visa, and Military IMPAC Procurement.
