The disclosure relates to the removal process for an access panel typically used in computer chassis.
The access panel slides open and closed to gain access to the internal assembly. The panel is interlocked
to the chassis with multiple hooks and contact points for a strong fit. These features also create
frictional force between the panel and chassis along with high inertia to install or remove the panel. To
remove the panel, a handle feature is typically included at the rear of the panel for the operator to
manually pull the panel and separate the panel from the chassis. If the panel frictional and inertial
forces are too high the entire chassis may slide and the panel will not separate from the chassis.
