custom rackmount for autolocator?

I want to rackmount the autolocator (aka 'the remote') for my studer a-80. I can't think that I'd be the first person to ever do such a thing. Does anyone know of any custom-rackmount manufacturers, or have any experience in rackmounting an autolocator through other means?? Basically I just want to get the damn thing in my 'track rack' that sits next to my console with my comps and pres. Convenience. Any thoughts?
Thanks J

Just bolt or screw two angle irons on each side of the remote. Make sure the angles and remote will fit the inside dimensions (17.5") of your 19" rack. You can attach the angle mounts by using the existing screw holes in the autolocator. I've done this to my Otari MTR90IIs autolocator and two remotes.

We've also mounted plenty of non-rackable devices. It's not really a big deal. I even got my Smackie HR824's racked in individual cases.

If you want to spend the bread, Middle Atlantic Products can custom build a rack for you. Or just get one of the rackable shelf systems they got and modify it to your spec.

Totally. You could also build a new wooden box for the locater and put rack ears on that. Putting it on a shelf might be the easiest and cheapest way to go. The Alesis BRC actually has rack ears on it if you take the plastic sides off.
