1. An apparatus for mounting electronic components comprising:
a linear actuator defining a longitudinal axis;
a driver member engaged to the linear actuator for motion along the longitudinal axis, wherein the driver member defines a mounting plane and includes a wedge surface that is oblique facing in a direction that has a component in a first direction towards the mounting plane and a component away from the longitudinal axis in a second direction parallel to the mounting plane, wherein the first and second directions are different from one another; and
a locking wedge engaged with the wedge surface of the driver member to be driven both toward the mounting plane and lateral to the mounting plane away from the longitudinal axis by sliding along the wedge surface of the driver member with the actuator driving the drive member toward a center of the locking wedge.
