Do we offer a grounding cage nut?

Issue:
Are there cage nuts available that can be used to ground equipment chassis to the cabinet? 

Product Line:
NetShelter

Environment:
All versions and serial ranges.

Cause:
A customer may wish to use grounding cage nuts instead of connecting ground straps to the equipment chassis, then to a busbar. 

Resolution:
We do not currently offer a grounded cage nut.
A better solution is to use AR8395 copper busbar and connect a ground wire from the equipment's chassis ground points directly to the busbar. This makes a more reliable ground path.
