   That's really nice-looking packaging for an 11/34.

   Ahh yes, there's one of those (in what looks to be an identical rack) 
in my VAX-11/730.  There are two metal clips which screw into the rack, 
and the white piece snaps onto them.

   It's 1U tall, so in the worst case you could get a 1U flat filler 
panel and paint it to match the rest of the cabinet.
