Abstract

Insertion and extraction forces which are required to seat and remove a a pluggable module are 180 degrees out of phase. A pluggable module insert and extract device is provided which has the ability to convert hand squeezing pressure to an insertion mode or, with the activation of two side levers, to an extraction mode, all in one tool instead of requiring two separate devices.
