Cabling Installation & Maintenance Awards: Platinum for the /dev/mount

We are delighted to announce that our revolutionary /dev/mount has been awarded the prestigious Platinum Level Award at the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards 2023. This is our third CI&M Innovators Award after 2020 (Setup.exe - Platinum) and 2017 (PATCHBOX - Gold).

This award is a testament to the exceptional quality and innovative design of our /dev/mount, which has been recognized as one of the best in the industry by an esteemed panel of IT judges.

The Platinum Level Award highlights the helpful features and quality of the /dev/mount and positions it as a premier choice for mounting hardware.

Its functionality and ease of use set it apart from conventional cage nuts, offering a reliable and efficient alternative in network infrastructure.

About the /dev/mount
The /dev/mount is an innovative cage nut alternative that can support hardware up to 15kg per U and secures it before the hex nuts are even attached.

Unlike traditional cage nuts, there are no sharp edges to touch and no tools are required to install or remove the /dev/mount.

The /dev/mount simply needs to be snapped into place and the extra-long hex nuts tightened by hand. These advantages ensure that IT technicians do not injure themselves on the sharp edges of conventional cage nuts and do not need tools, while the process of device assembly is simplified and accelerated.
