Claim of US Patent No. 10,925,186

1. An assembly, comprising: a bay structure that defines a bay for receiving a pluggable module and including a plurality of sides and a front plate rotatably connected to the plurality of sides; a connecting bracket coupled with the bay structure; and a heat transfer device coupled with the bay structure, wherein: the bay structure, the heat transfer device, and the connecting bracket are configured such that rotating the front plate from a first position to a second position displaces the connecting bracket in a first direction which causes the connecting bracket to displace the heat transfer device in a second direction transverse to the first direction, and when displacement of the heat transfer device occurs in the second direction, movement of the heat transfer device in the first direction is restricted or prevented.
