 The RETRAKT Adjustable Rack-mounting System allows equipment to be mounted into the system, and angled in any configuration of the user's choosing.   Create concave "cockpit-style" control surfaces, mount gear to the wall, or cake a custom tabletop rack to hold your studio gear.   RETRAKT is available in 1, 2, and 3 hinged units, where the user can angle each tier however they want.   The RETRAKT includes the following hardware:

All sets of hinges ship with extra sets of locking nuts, which can be used in place of hand adjusted knobs when holding extra-heavy gear.   These can be used to tighten the hinge joints more than can be done by hand adjusted knobs.   When using locking nuts, each joint can bear well over 100lbs of force without moving.

Rack rails are not included.  For a 2-tier system, one set of hinges is used.  For a 3-tier system, 2 sets of hinges are used.  For a 4 tier system, 3 sets of hinges are used.

The system requires that you purchase rack rails separately, to accommodate the length and style of rail that you want to use in the Retrakt.  The unit shown in the photos has 8U rails on the lower tier, and 12U rails on the upper tier, but any size rails can be used (8U is the max we recommend for the lower tier)  Rack rails are not included.  The customer must purchase rack rails , because the rack rails in North America and EU differ, and customers want to choose the sizes that suit their particular need and system, we recommend purchasing those from Penn Elco Online,   

RETRAKT hinges can mount to any sized rack rail, however, if you plan to expand your system to have more than 1 set of hinges, at least 4U is required for a second hinge to mount to a rail.  

The base has non-skid rubber feet on it.  First tier can be tilted forward or backward on the base.  Base hinge mounting holes are equidistant from front to back, so there is no "longer" or "shorter" side.  Gear mounted in the rack should not protrude beyond the back of the base.  If gear does stick out beyond base, then the gear is deeper than what is recommended to be used in this system.  We recommend that gear mounted in the Retrakt be less than 10" deep.

Each hinge is fully adjustable between 90 and 180 degrees.

Assembly is required.
