    Default Mounting CG-1000 , CG-2000

    I have recently bought both the following enclosures.
    CG-1000 (Ren 64, Ren16SS)
    CG-2000 (Ren 24SS)

    The enclosure works great and I appreciate the advice from the DIYC.

    I was hoping there was "ears" on the box to allow for easily attaching to a wooden stake or pipe. However, I do not see anyway to connect from the outside of the cabinet.

    How does everybody normally mount these enclosures?

    I cut pieces of 1x2 the length of the box, and then screw into them with 1/2" screws from inside the enclosure. You can add a dab of silicone if you like (I never had a problem).

    Then when I set them up in the yard, I drive a 3' U-picket into the ground and then screw it into the 1x2 on the back of the enclosure.

    (note: That price is OUTRAGEOUS! I only linked there because I could find one quickly. Your local Home Depot should have them for about $2)

    Unfortunately, I don't have a pic of a mounted enclosure. I do the same kind of thing for my cutouts. Here is a picture of how that looks.

    Yea... Here it is at Lowes. If you put in your Zip, you'll get a price (for me it was $1.97)-->

    There are the pole mounts on the back, they just aren't punched out. I cut them out with a carpenter's knife and ran Large Zip ties through them and around my Mega Tree Pole.

    I also had a standalone 2000 box for my Ren 64 and Power Supply that was mounted the same way to a piece of 1" conduit driven into the ground

    I used 1/2 pvc, caps and clamps I bought at Lowes, the color of the pvc I used is off white, If you use this type of mounting make sure the clamps are a snug fit around the pvc. I pre-drilled the holes in the stand off's on the box and used self tapping screws. I cut rebar and hammered it in the ground where I wanted to mount the box.

    That's what happens when you buy too much pvc, you look for any way you can to use it up.

    Thanks for the quick response and great ideas on how to mount the enclosures. I am off to Home Depot tonight.

    The mounting for my boxes depended on how it was used. All of my boxes held SSRs but a controller would mount the same. I used the post mount by popping a perfectly sized hole with a flat-bladed screwdriver and zip-tying them to the PVC. For another, I needed it up higher so I simply screwed it right into the tree - probably not recommended for the health of the tree but I put some of that tree goop on it after.

    I went with a flat "pipe-clamp" (the type that looks like steel ribbon, and a threaded screw to tighten it up). Used the flat mounts provided, and tightened it down. Seemed to work just fine and survived a Canadian December without issue.
