I just purchased two Summit x440-8t's and the rack mount hardware that came with it is... odd.  It has extra material that forces a space above and below the switch (http://imgur.com/Kma0ETo).  Is this mandatory? Or can I mount the switches in adjacent Us.  If so where can I get the proper rack mount hardware/ears?

X440-8t was meant to be a fanless tabletop unit. If you stack several units just piling them one over the other there will be temperature problems. That's why the rack mount kit forces some space between the units so they can ventilate properly.
