Those things for keeping fingers out of EQs?

I've seen these in house installations where owners have gotten tired of people wandering in off the streets and messing with the house EQs. They are like plastic covers and they essentially screw to the racks so nobody can mess with things they aren't supposed to. I need to buy some, but it's hard to buy something when you don't know what they are called (or who might sell em)
Anyone please?

Security covers.

Or, just do what a pro I know, does- get a rack with front and rear rack-mount rails, put the EQs on the REAR of the rack, and just lock on the back door. Many times, if they can't SEE that there's an EQ, you've just won the "battle" before it even starts.

If you put a rack-rider in the rack for power to the EQs and other processing gear, you can still turn them all on and off, even with them locked away in the rear...

Thanks for the ideas. Actually the locked door thing would work. Once this is set up, the user only needs access to the patch panel. Just saved me 50 bucks or so there!

GordonW is correct. I have always mounted the EQs and Compressors on the rear rack rails ... facing towards the locked back door.

Yeah, I can make that work, but I wouldn't have thought about it myself!
