Be careful with it, and I think it should work ok. Maybe it would be a good idea to take it out when moving it around though, for LAN parties etc.

I believe that the PEP-66 is heavier, yet its singular design reduces its moment below that of a FOP-38. With both HSF's, I use tie wraps to compensate for the load upon the Slocket. As Allen Nielsen suggests, be careful when you move your box.

Extend your arm to the side. Have a friend push down on your hand. The force you experience is "moment."
