    Removing the SFBs Before Installing an MX2020 Router with a Router Transport Kit

    To remove the SFBs (see Figure 1):

    1. Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface.
    2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to an approved site ESD grounding point. See the instructions for your site.
    3. Open the ejector handles outward simultaneously to unseat the SFB.
    4. Grasp the ejector handles, and slide the SFB about halfway out of the chassis.
    5. Place one hand underneath the SFB to support it, and slide it completely out of the chassis. Place it on the antistatic mat.

      Caution: The weight of the SFB is concentrated in the back end. Be prepared to accept the full weight—up to 12 lb (5.45 kg)—as you slide the SFB out of the chassis.

      Caution: Do not stack hardware components on one another after you remove them. Place each component on an antistatic mat resting on a stable, flat surface.

    6. Repeat the procedure for each SFB.
