Physical security for single device in a shared rack (3845)

I have a Cisco 3845 3RU router in a shared rack and have been looking for a way

to prevent the cables being un-plugged etc. The router is in a shared rack with another customer and I need to be able to restrict physical access to that single router whilst still allowing access to the other equipment.

I did look at installing a split rack but this was too costly and am wondering if there is a lockable plate or tray of some sort the router can have installed across the front to prevent access. I have searched the web and even contacted several rack suppliers but have no suggestions.

Any idea of a product out there I can use ?

Is it a 2 or 4 post rack? If its a 4-post you can look this.

I would be aware of how this may affect the airflow of your router for cooling. No good solving one problem by creating another.
