Fans usually need to be very well attached due to sealing, vibrations and structural integrity. This is usually
done by screwing the fan into a surface.
The space needed to allow the servicing of the fan tends to be big, as it is needed to access the screws of
the fans to release them.
This disclosure will describe a way to attach a fan without using screws but ensuring the preload needed
for the sealing. Moreover, the new attachment allows a release of the fan with less space, reducing the
parts that need to be taken away for the fans service.
