Abstract

This multi-purpose holder, which is used during shipping and storage of its contents, also holds its contents while they are being cleaned and inserted into a hat of a thermal conduction module (TCM). As shown in Fig. 1, molded plates 12 and 13 have matching arrays of holes 14 which are positioned coaxially with interposing splined (Image Omitted) holes 15 contained in plastic foil 16. The parts are inserted through the top and held in spatial suspension within the body of the holder by spring-like splines 17 of the holes 15. Pistons 1 are contained in holder 10, and springs 2 in holder 11. Holders 10, 11 are held together in alignment by a sliding fit between alignment studs (not shown) located on the top of all holders and corresponding alignment holes (not shown) located on the bottom of all holders.
