Fourté makes release mechanisms for the following form factors: SFP, SFP+, XFP, and QSFP / QSFP+. The release mechanism disengages the module from the cage. We can create custom designs to accommodate your specific needs while remaining compliant with the SFP, SFP+, XFP, and QSFP / QSFP+ Multi Source Agreement (MSA).

SFP Release Mechanism

SFP+ Release Mechanism

XFP Release Mechanism

QSFP / QSFP+ Release Mechanism


The SFP release mechanism is a metal stamped product with a molded top that is color-coated for different wavelengths. The three piece solution that attaches to the metal enclosure includes a bail, a slide, and two pins.

Unlike other SFP release mechanisms that disengage the module from the SFP cage by applying pressure to the tip of the tongue, Fourté’s SFP release mechanism disengages the module from the SFP cage by applying pressure to the rear of the tongue.


Features and Benefits
• Distinct home position
• Bail rotates 90 degrees
   - Triggers mechanism to disengage module from cage
• Robust design, rugged
• MSA compliant
• RoHS compliant
• Easily implemented to custom applications
• Allows wide range of placement for optical plane
• Industry standard and proven designs
• Cost effective solutions
• Color-coated for different wavelengths


The SFP+ release mechanism is a two-piece solution made of a bail and a slide. The bail of the SFP+ release mechanism hooks onto the slide and housing.

Features and Benefits
• Distinct home position
• Bail rotates 90 degrees
   - Triggers mechanism to disengage module from cage
• Robust design, rugged
• MSA compliant
• RoHS compliant
• Easily implemented to custom applications
• Allows wide range of placement for optical plane
• Industry standard and proven designs
• Cost effective solutions
• Color-coated for different wavelengths


The XFP release mechanism is a metal stamped product with a molded top which is color-coated for different wavelengths. The three piece solution that attaches to the metal enclosure includes a bail, a slide, and two pins.

The XFP release mechanism includes a bail latch design for easy insertion and removal into the standardized XFP cage. It is widely accepted across the world as the Industry Standard for XFP transceiver modules. The robust and minimally intrusive design allows module manufacturers to easily incorporate the design into a standard XFP transceiver module. The XFP release mechanism conforms to XFP MSA and is also RoHS compliant.


Features and Benefits
• Distinct home position
• Bail rotates 90 degrees
   - Triggers mechanism to disengage module from cage
• Robust design, rugged
• MSA compliant
• RoHS compliant
• Easily implemented to custom applications
• Allows wide range of placement for optical plane
• Industry standard and proven designs
• Cost effective solutions
• Color-coated for different wavelengths


The QSFP / QSFP+ release mechanism is a metal stamped product that has paint color-coating for different wavelengths. The QSFP / QSFP+ release mechanism is a two piece solution that attaches to the QSFP / QSFP+ metal enclosure. The QSFP / QSFP+ release mechanism includes a bail and a slide.

Features and Benefits
• Distinct home position
• Bail rotates 90 degrees
   - Triggers mechanism to disengage module from cage
• Robust design, rugged
• MSA compliant
• RoHS compliant
• Easily implemented to custom applications
• Allows wide range of placement for optical plane
