Unpacking a Crate

Unpacking a Crate


Crates are used to package goods such as cabinets and S12708, S12710, and S12700E-8 switches. A crate is secured with steel locking bars and has foam materials in it to protect the product. When equipment is delivered, unpack the crate and check the equipment and accessories in the crate.

  • Do not turn a crate upside down; otherwise, the equipment in the crate will be damaged.
  • Wear gloves or take other protection measures to prevent hand injuries when unpacking a crate.

Before unpacking a crate, move it to or close to the installation site (equipment room for example). Do not transport the unpacked equipment over a long distance.


  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Protective gloves


  1. Inspect the crate. If the crate is delivered upside down, the crate is wet, or the label on the crate is damaged, analyze the cause and contact the equipment supplier immediately. If no exceptions are found, start unpacking the crate.
  2. Raise all the locking bars on the cover of the crate. Insert a flat-head screwdriver (or a claw hammer or a pair of needle-nose pliers) into the hole on a locking bar and raise the flat-head screwdriver to raise the locking bar.

  3. Open the crate cover and remove it.

  4. Raise the locking bars on the side panels of the crate and remove the side panels.

  5. Remove the foam materials, move the equipment out of the crate, and inspect the equipment. If rust or other damage is found on the equipment, analyze the cause and contact the equipment supplier immediately.
