Mac Pro Rack Rail Upgrade
The Mac Pro Rack Rail Upgrade is a low profile rack rail mounting solution for the Mac Pro. The system is designed to upgrade the Mac Pro rack installation capability into 16″ to 24″ depth rack cases, including various molded flight cases for onset and mobile applications. The Mac Pro Rack Rail Upgrade makes use of the Apple provided inner rail to mount securely to the computer.
Important: Prior to purchase, please read disclaimers below and review the product fit guide to measure your rack case and ensure product compatibility with EIA rack mounting standards. Rotation molded plastic flight cases, due to the manufacturing process, may have variations in dimensions that exceed the allowable tolerance to fit the Mac Pro Rack Rail Upgrade. Custom built rack cabinets may also not comply with EIA rack mounting standards. See below for further details.
IMPORTANT PRODUCT DISCLAIMER
The Mac Pro Rack Rail Upgrade design aims to provide the most low profile mounting solution for users to secure the Mac Pro for onset applications into shallower depth racks. The low profile design may even make it possible to mount the Mac Pro into rotation molded plastic flight cases. If possible, slight modifications to the flight case may be required.
Check the Product Fit Guide below.
“Apple did not provide a suitable onset mounting solution for the Mac Pro as their included rack mounting rails are limited to a minimum rail to rail depth of 24 inches, intended for server rack cabinets. It is not an easy feat to mount the Mac Pro rack in a low profile flight case or shallower rack cabinet. Collaborating with Upgrade Innovations, we where able to design a product that secures the Mac Pro for use in most flight cases.”

“So glad I went with Upgrade Innovations’ Mac Pro mounting system. Installation was a breeze into my SKB rack case, it actually took less time than unboxing the Mac Pro! It seamlessly locks my Mac Pro in place and is rock solid, but it’s also so easy to unlock and slide out for installation of PCIE cards and the like. It’s the perfect addition to a professional on set workhorse system built to last.”
