Larger flight cases often need to be stored out of the way when not in use, but because these flight cases typically have wheels, stacking them on top of each other may be unsafe.

To enable flight cases to be stacked safely, some come with metal wheel locators on the top face that allow the wheels or castors of a similar sizes flight cases to be held in place. These metal runners are known as castor dishes.

Rhino® always recommend applying the brakes of all stacked flight cases including the bottom flight case and consider any other safety measures that may be required in your location to ensure stability. Rhino® do not recommend stacking loaded flight cases in this way.
