The DA6 is without question a case designed to be used in a vertical orientation but it can still be used horizontally by resting it on its side. Regardless of which orientation you choose, protective clips should be used on either the tubes (when vertical) or on the aluminium panels (when horizontal).
Protective Clips (Feet)
Instead of typical case feet or rubber pads applied to the bottom panel, the DA6 maintains the tubular theme with the tubes also serving as the feet.
Whilst the case can rest directly on them, we include silicone clips that we recommend should be fitted to them. These will serve to protect the surface of the tubes and the desktop from scratches. They also provide grip, vibration dampening and can help maintain stability on uneven surfaces (by adjusting the positioning along the tube).
