If the bottom of the printer is attached to an optional accessory (such as a 500-sheet tray and feeder, 1,500-sheet tray and feeder, or storage cabinet), the accessory latches must be unlocked before moving the printer.

WARNING! To prevent possible injury or damage to the printer, separate the printer from any currently installed optional accessories (for example, an optional tray and feeder or a stapler/stacker) before lifting the printer.
Hp Laserjet 4200 User Manual 33

To lock the accessories, locate the lever on the upper left side of the optional tray and feeder and rotate the lever to the rear (locked) position.

To unlock the accessories, rotate the lever to the forward (unlocked) position.
