Abstract

As printed circuit cards become larger and require more contacts to connect them to the rest of the system, it becomes difficult to unplug them without damage to the card or the contacts. The problem is compounded by the fact that the cards are generally mounted in tight quarters with little room for the use of extraction tools or expensive complex lever arrangements.
