Title: Equipment assembly

Abstract: An equipment assembly includes a housing and a sub-unit each having a large array of electrical contacts which mate when the sub-unit is inserted into the housing. The sub-unit has a plurality of threaded bolts which extend through the sub-unit to engage with cooperating threaded nuts secured to the housing. The plurality of bolts is linked together mechanically, so that all bolts engage simultaneously with their respective nuts, and draw the sub-unit into engagement with the housing as the bolts are rotated.
