For the RL01/02 drives:
Slide the drive out to the load position, release both rail catches, and begin to slide
towards the maintenance position. Observe the sides of the rails as you slide out wards,
there are two holes in each rail. As you slide outwards, you will discover two screws
visible through the holes on each side. Remove the screws, then lift the drive straight
upwards to clear the lower mounting ledges.

Does anyone have a reference to how to release the slide rails on an RL01
drive that is in a DECSystem corporate cabinet? At the same time, I also
need to remove the PDP-11/34 from the rack as well.
I am trying to remove the entire drive from the rack. I can extend the
drive all of the way out to the maintenance position, but I just cannot
figure out what I need to do to release the slide so that I can remove the
drive entirely out of the rack. I need to move the system into my
basement, so I want to remove the drives to make the move manageable.
