Rubber feet help protect benchtops, increase friction to prevent slipping, deaden sound, and generally improve the feel of your enclosure. We have four common styles, small, medium, large, and taper. Choose by considering size, weight, and interior space. For normal enclosures, small feet are suitable for enclosures under 10" (254mm), medium feet for enclosures under 15" (381mm), and large for enclosures greater than 15" (381mm). We don't recommend taper feet unless there is no room to accommodate attachment studs and nuts required by small, medium or large feet.
Recommended Clearance holes:
The following information around recommended clearance holes is only relevant if you are fastening rubber feet with a hex nut inside your enclosure, rather than using a self-clinching nut fastener.
Taper feet attach via adhesive (we generally ship them unattached, and you put them in place when you receive your enclosure. For proper adhesion, we recommend you only use them with non-textured powdercoat.
