That’s all there is to it. A floor stand for the tower with five swivel and braked castors that raises the box about 8 cm off the ground allowing it to be moved easily for cleaning or tinkering and also keeps a little less dust and lint from getting in than when it rests directly on the floor. If you have pets at home and/or work near a window or balcony, raising the box a little will always reduce the accumulation of dirt.
The box contains the folded stand, the five wheels and a manual, which is not necessary because assembly is as simple as clicking on the wheels, opening it and putting the tower on top.
There is no need to adjust or tighten anything on the stand, it has different opening points and you just have to open it to the one that is closest to the width of your box.
All the wheels have brakes. They are typical of office chairs and at first glance they seem a bit fragile. Now all that remains to be seen is how long they will last.
The stand is made entirely of ABS plastic with a simple rounded edge finish and can be placed on boxes from 7.5 cm to 25 cm wide. The manufacturer claims that it can carry up to 25kg of load. An economical option that does its job well.
The wheels with the brake removed.
My box weighs just over 17.5kg and, despite the appearance of the stand being light, it stands quite firmly with all five wheels locked.
At no point does it ever feel unstable or likely to tip over. I’ve shaken it and even with the wheels locked it moves before tilting even slightly.
Once it is in place it is unobtrusive. On a black or dark case it appears to be a native part of the assembly.
In cases that have a bottom ventilation grill for the power supply (not my case) the bracket does not cover it, leaving more than enough space for the air outlet.
I have removed the four round rubber bands from the bottom of the case, so it is even more stable. The stand also has a small rubber spot on each of its arms.
I bought it directly from the brand’s website, Donkey pc (Sevilla), where they have it at a cheaper final price than any other distributor.
It cost 16,08 € including shipping and it arrived in 48 hours.
