Stupid question...plastic rod on drive sled?

I feel silly for asking, but what's that removable, clear plastic rod attached to my Octane's drive sled used for?

Well, it's only used when the sled is in an Origin. There are LEDs on the SCSI backplane that pipe through these so you can easily see the drive access activity from the front.
