Claim of US Patent No. 10,602,637

1. A convenient two-step inner sliding rail mounting structure comprises:an outer rail with opposing front and rear ends and configured for mounting to a server rack;
a front bracket and a rear bracket coupled respectively to said front end and said rear end of said outer rail;
said outer rail comprising a base wall, an opposing upper wall, and a lower wall respectively extended from opposing top and bottom sides of said base wall of said outer rail;
an outer rail reinforcement rail comprising a base wall affixed to a back side of said base wall of said outer rail, an opposing upper wall, and a lower rail respectively extended from opposing top and bottom sides of said base wall of said outer rail reinforcement rail, and said outer rail reinforcement rail defining a sliding groove longitudinally extended through opposing front and rear ends thereof; and
an inner sliding rail mounted in said outer rail and slidable forwards and backwards relative to said outer rail, wherein said inner sliding rail is configured to be affixed to a server box;
a spring plate;
a front bracket auxiliary sliding rail having a front end and an opposing rear end, wherein said opposing rear end is slidably inserted into said sliding groove so that said outer rail reinforcement rail is movable back and forth relative to said front bracket auxiliary sliding rail; and
an outer rail pull-out control member comprising a stopper portion adapted for stopping against a front end of the upper wall of said outer rail reinforcement rail, and a press portion connected to a front side of said stopper portion and configured for pressing by a user;
wherein said front bracket at said front end of said outer rail is connected to said front end of said front bracket auxiliary sliding rail with a plurality of first fastening members;
wherein said rear end of said front bracket auxiliary sliding rail is connected with one end of said spring plate by at least one second fastening member, and said spring plate having an opposite end thereof connected with said outer rail pull-out control member by at least one third fastening member; and
