My idea is to suspend "dog chain" across the back of my rack. I need to provide strain relief (maybe I don't, but I'd like to) and it seems like a good way to do it. I could have 4 or 5 of them up and down the back of the rack. I wouldn't have permanent bars or beams that might get in the way. My question is whether it would mess with the sound having everything hanging over metal chains. Here's how I would fasten it to both of the inside walls of the rack. I would, of course, have to fasten the s hook to the chain, but the other side could just hang off the "O" hook and be easily removable. Good or bad idea?
I was just saying I would suspend chain across the back so that all of the 1/4" cables going in and out of patch bays etc would have something to keep the pressure off the 1/4" jacks and xlr jacks on the back of my gear. I won't be touching any of the rack stuff with chain.
Maybe you understood and it's just a bad idea...but it didn't seem like it.
I made my racks myself, so there is nothing in the back for me to tie anything to. I guess I could just use the 0--- hooks into the side walls and tie the cables together and hang them off the hooks with garbage bag ties.
