The only way you should lift a chassis

When lifting a chassis, always grab the chassis by the sides at the midpoint; never by the front.

Always grasp the chassis by the sides at the midpoint

Note If you lift the chassis by the corners while drive carriers are installed, pressure on the drive carriers combined with chassis torque may damage the installed backplanes.

Never grasp by the front
