I have placed this product in the bottom space in my rack, where my outboard effects reside. As a bass player, I don't require to be near my effects during performance so I can simply slide the shelf out to access tuner and DI box etc. This obviously works for me as I have the rack on the floor, which means the pull-out shelf is on the ground and supported by the floor itself.
Pros - Excellent solution for outboard effects, strong velcro grip. Decent amount of surface area on the shelf. Latching switch to hold the shelf in place during transport.
Cons - The shelf takes up 2 spaces in the rack, but as soon as you add something like a Boss pedal, you will need some clearance above, so you're forced to leave an empty 1U slot free above the shelf. Approx 1/4 of the shelf is still inside the rack when it's fully slid out (No big deal).
Overall A great solution to holding outboard effects, velcro grips are strong and sturdy. The overall build quality is excellent. Overall, very happy with this item.
Great little item this i bought 2 for my DJ Console so that i can put a controller on one side and an iPad on the other side its very well padded and comes with plenty of strong velcro sticky tape, it has a lever on the right hand side so it can't slide out on its own and is very deep the padding is quite thin so does take up about 1/4 - 1/2 U space. it looks very professional and well made and is light but strong i have hand metal draws before but the can be very heavy, which then becomes more difficult to transport, think they are a little expensive for what they are but they do work and look good so i was prepared to pay the extra.
