I’m needing to somehow affix a 4 way powerboard and a transformer (it’s a
big black Alesis tranformer for the Quadraverb GT with 240 volt cord out
of one end and the din connector which goes into the Quadraverb out of
the other end) to the inside of my wooden rack case.
It’s a pretty standard rack case with the black carpet on it.
In the past, I’ve taken some aluminium and bent it to fit around these
thing and then screwed them down directly into the wood.
I’m just wondering what other methods may be out there.
Any help much appreciated.

Those Alesis PSs are fairly hefty, but a big enough piece of velcro
would do it. You could also use cable restraints (like the kind that
hold the AC cord to the inside of an amp cabinet) on the cords to even
further secure it.

Actually, when I bought the Quadreaverb, it was second hand and it had a
huge peice of velcro stuck to the bottom of it (the rack unit, not the
power supply), which I removed, but you’re right…..a big a** piece of
velcro would hold any piece which needed to be secured…….
Even multiple strips of velcro I guess…….
Thanks for the response dude.

A 4-way powerboard? Do you mean a power supply? I used to use a 6-outlet
power strip with a circuit breaker in it for my rack…it had holes on
the bottom to attach to screws. I put two screws the bottom of the rack,
and mounted the strip securely. I use a Juice Goose rack mounted power
supply these days, I guess I wanted it to be more professional.
I have the QuadraVerb’s transformer secured with two large pieces of
velcro, and it’s never budged.
