Transporting and Storing the Router

The shipping package for Cisco 12006 and Cisco 12406 Routers is engineered to reduce the potential of product damage associated with routine material handling experienced during shipment. To minimize potential damage to the product, transport these products in their Cisco-specified packaging. Failure to do so may result in damage to the router or degradation of its performance. Do not remove the router from its shipping container until you are ready to install it. Keep the router in the shipping container until you have determined where you will install it. The router should always be transported or stored in an upright position.


Note If the original packing material has been lost or is damaged, order a replacement packaging kit (Product Number: GSR6-PKG=).

Repacking the Router

Repacking the Cisco 12006 or Cisco 12406 Router into the shipping container is presented in the following procedure. This procedure assumes you have repacked the accessory kit and have the anchor clips and angle brackets, bolts, screws, and carton that were removed when the chassis was unpacked.

There are three phases in the repacking process:

1. Securing the router to the pallet base. (See Figure B-2.)

2. Reassembling the protective packaging around the router on the pallet base. (See Figure B-1.)

3. Strapping the entire package to the pallet base. (See Figure B-3.)

Figure B-2 Securing the Router to the Pallet Base

To repack the router, follow these steps:


Step 1 Place the router on the pallet base.

Step 2 Install the two anchor clips on the front of the chassis (see Figure B-2):

a. Set the hold-down clips in the bottom holes of the rack-mounting flanges on either side of the chassis.

b. Align the bolt holes in the anchor clips with the bolt holes in the pallet base.

c. Insert and loosely tighten the bolts to secure the anchor clips to the pallet base.

Step 3 Install the angle brackets on the sides of the chassis (see Figure B-2):

a. Set the side of the bracket with the three screw holes against the side of the chassis and align the holes with the holes in the side of the chassis.

b. Insert and loosely tighten the three screws you saved when the chassis was unpacked.

c. Align the bolt holes in the angle brackets with the bolt holes in the pallet base.

d. Insert and loosely tighten the bolts to secure the brackets to the pallet base.

Step 4 Place the plastic bag cover over the router. (See Figure B-1.)

Step 5 Place the accessory kit on top of the router. (See Figure B-1.)

Step 6 Place the cardboard carton over the accessory kit and router. (See Figure B-1.)

Step 7 Secure the cardboard carton to the pallet with plastic-type straps similar to the ones used to ship the router to you. (See Figure B-3.)


Your router is ready for shipment.
