I was working on placing a new Ridg-U-Rak stock order last week and ran into a problem where I couldn’t find the shims I ordinarily order. After some investigation, I found them but they weren’t the same size.
A quick phone call to my friends at Ridg-U-Rak and I confirmed that they have changed the size of their standard footplate.
Going forward, all non-seismic Ridg-U-Rak upright footplates have changed size as follows:
Original Size: 3.688″W x 6″D
New Size: 3.375″W x 4.75″D
This will not affect the upright characteristics so capacity and so on remains unchanged. However, if you need to replace a frame for a customer you will need to re-anchor and replace the shims (if any) with the new size.
