Cisco ONS 15454 Bay End Guard Kit
The ONS 15454 Bay End Guard Kit provides a full aisle guard with an AC on/off switch cutout. It is used to complete the end of the aisle (about 2.50-inches (6.35-cm) wide or thick). The end guard may or may not have power (110 VAC), 110 VAC outlets, and a visual light for alarms.
Note Although Figure 1 shows an end guard on each side of a rack to illustrate attachments points, the normal procedure is to attach a single end guard at the end of a row of bay assembly racks.

The following guidelines will help to ensure your safety and protect the equipment. This list does not include every potentially hazardous situation.
•Never attempt to lift an object that might be too heavy for you to lift by yourself.
•Always disconnect the power source and unplug all power cables before installing or removing the bay assembly.
•Carefully examine your work area for possible hazards such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing power grounds.
•When using equipment such as a forklift or pallet jack to move the bay assembly to another location, use only moving equipment that is capable of preventing the bay assembly from tipping.
•Do not wear loose clothing, jewelry (including rings and chains), or other items that could get caught in the bay assembly.
•Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.
The end guard kit ships with the following materials:
•Three large L-shaped brackets
•Three small L-shaped brackets
•Phillips head metal screws
•This installation document
Because most of the installation is complete when you receive the system, the end guard requires little installation material. The most significant tasks are removing the packaging from the end guard assembly and removing the end guard from the shipping container. Because the actual installation of the end guard in each facility is done according to local site practice, your material needs may vary.
Cisco recommends that you have the following items on hand for installation:
•A forklift or pallet jack to move the packaged end guard to the unpacking/staging area
•A pair of scissors to cut the plastic banding on the shipping container
•Utility blankets or their equivalent to protect the end guard while on the forklift or pallet jack
•Phillips screw driver or cordless drill with Phillips bit
The end guard assembly ships in a crate with an integrated pallet, and is secured by eight metal clamps.
Step 1 Use a forklift or pallet jack to place the shipping crate as close to the installation location as possible.
Step 2 Using a prybar or screwdriver, remove the eight metal clamps that hold the lid on to the crate.
Step 3 Remove the lid from the shipping crate.
Step 4 Lift the end guard assembly out from the shipping crate.
Step 5 Remove the accessories located under the end guard from the shipping crate.
The end guard comes fully assembled, requiring only attachment to the side of the bay assembly rack. General bracket locations are shown in Figure 2 and Figure 3. Specific locations for installing the small brackets are shown in Figure 4.
Step 1 Locate the end guard front edge flush to the front of the rack and next to the rack or base filler.
Step 2 Mark the floor using the holes in the bottom of the base.
Step 3 Drill two 3/8-inch holes 2-1/2-inches deep (0.953-cm holes 6.35-cm deep) and install the wedge anchors.
Step 4 Attach the end guard over the anchor tight to the base filler using the hex nut and flat washer provided with the anchor.
Step 5 Bolt the short side of the three (3) large L-brackets to the inside panel of the end guard using two #12-24 x 1/4-inch (0.635-cm) Phillips head metal screws per bracket.
Step 6 Bolt the long side of the three large L-brackets to the rear of the rack using two (2) #12-24 x 1/2-inch (1.27-cm) Phillips head metal screws and 1/4-inch (0.635-cm) flat washers per bracket.
Step 7 Bolt one side of the three (3) small L-brackets to the inside panel of the end guard using two #12-24 x 1/4-inch (0.635-cm) Phillips head metal screws per bracket.
Step 8 Bolt the other side of the three (3) small L-brackets to the vertical extender panel toward the front of the rack using two (2) #12-24 x 1/4-inch (0.635-cm) Phillips head metal screws per bracket.
