To remove an SFP or SFP+ module from the converter module, follow these steps:
Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap to your wrist and to a bare metal surface.
Disconnect the cable from the SFP or SFP+ module. For reattachment, note which
cable connector plug is send (TX) and which is receive (RX).
Insert a dust plug into the optical ports of the SFP or SFP+ module to keep the
optical interfaces clean.
If the SFP or SFP+ module has a bale-clasp latch, pull the bale out and down to
eject the module. If the bale-clasp latch is obstructed and you cannot use your
index finger to open it, use a small, flat-blade screwdriver or other long, narrow
instrument to open the bale-clasp latch.
Grasp the SFP or SFP+ module, and carefully remove it from the converter
