Cisco ONS 15454 Bay Assembly End Cover Kit
The ONS 15454 Bay Assembly End Plate Cover Kit provides a basic end plate for temporary cable protection. It contains parts that mount flush against the rack with no major footprint change (thickness of the metal only) against the edge of the rack to protect the cables. This plate is usually used for an aisle that is not complete, or as an aisle guard for aisles.

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 cover kit ships with the following materials:
•Three large L-shaped brackets
•Phillips head metal screws

The end cover requires little installation material. The most significant tasks are unpacking the end cover from the shipping container. Because the actual installation of the end cover 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 cover to the unpacking/staging area
•A pair of scissors to cut the tape on the shipping container
•Utility blankets or their equivalent to protect the end cover while on the forklift or pallet jack
•Phillips screw driver or cordless drill with Phillips bit
The end cover assembly ships in a corrugated cardboard shipping container secured by tape and four plastic corro-clips.
Step 1 Use a forklift or pallet jack to place the shipping container as close to the installation location as possible.
Step 2 Cut the tape from the shipping container and remove the four plastic corro-clips (two per side).
Step 3 Remove the top cover of the shipping container.
Step 4 Lift the end cover completely out of the container and remove the polyethylene cushions.
The end cover can be installed in two ways:
•Mounted directly to the bay assembly rack
•Mounted on a bay assembly rack with an extender
Mounting the End Cover Directly
Step 1 Align the end cover panel against the rack, so it is flush to the front of the rack (Figure 3).
Step 2 Secure the end cover to the rack using the five provided Phillips 10-32 x 0.5-in (1.27-cm) flat-head metal screws.

Mounting the End Cover with the Extender
Step 1 Align the end cover flush with the front of the rack and next to the rack or base filler.
Step 2 Align the the L-shaped edge of the end cover with the vertical extender, and secure the end cover to the extender using the five provided Phillips 10-32 x 0.5-in (1.27-cm) pan-head metal screws (Figure 4).
Step 3 Attach the short end of the three L-shaped brackets to the end cover using the three provided Phillips 10-32 x 0.5-in (1.27-cm) flat-head metal screws.
Step 4 Attach the long end of the three L-shaped brackets to the rack frame using the three provided Phillips 12-24 x 0.5-in (1.27-cm) pan-head metal screws.
