    Holding an M40e FPC Vertically

    You hold an FPC vertically when installing it into the chassis or an equipment rack. To hold an FPC vertically (see Figure 1):

    1. Orient the FPC so that the faceplate faces you.
    2. Place one hand around the FPC faceplate about a quarter of the way down from the top edge. To avoid deforming the electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding strip, do not press hard on it.
    3. Place your other hand at the bottom edge of the FPC. If the FPC has heat sinks about midway between the faceplate and connector edge, place your other hand against the heat sinks.
