C700M Remove rubber feet for carpeted floor

Recommended Posts

I keep my case on a carpeted floor and want to remove the rubber feet so I can slide it without having to kill my back picking it up.

 

Looked at them but don't see any screws. Are they glued on?

I contacted Customer Support and they said they were in fact glued on.

 

To remove them, just slowly pull the rubber feet off. You can use WD-40 on a rag to clean off the adhesive and rubbing alcohol to clean off the WD-40. Case will sit slightly lower now however high enough for air flow.

 

The case now will EASILY slide back and forth on carpeted floors without having to pick it up. After all, that's one of the advantages to having a case with "snow skies" on the bottom! :thumbright:

 

Save the rubber feet if you ever need to glue them back on.

As an alternative, hardware stores sell furniture glides that you could place under the rubber feet. They are inexpensive, thin discs made of Teflon that slide very easily on almost any surface, especially carpet. That way you could leave the case intact and the glides will likely slide more easily than the case rails.

Sure that is another option. However, my experience with furniture slides is they always seem to slip out from under the legs.

 

I use to have a Cosmos S and slid this one out to get access. The rubber feet on the C700M was a option I did not care for anyways.

 

It didn't hurt the rails or the rubber feet which I put away with the spares. Doubt I'll ever put them back on again.

No need to remove the rubber pads on the puter. just buy some furniture coasters, they come in all sizes and are very cheap, a few bucks. These are small concave "carpet slippery" plastic or some other material used to move furniture on carpet or protect floors from wood or metal furniture legs. 4 of these in the one or two inch diameter quickly attach to the bottom of the rubber pads easily. There are literally hundreds of brands and thousands of types, plus it is much better than dragging a chassis bare on the carpet (not that you should have your puter on insect and dust :) to begin with, my opinion)
