AbstractAn optical fiber tray including a fiber connector holder with storage in the holder for incoming fibers for connection to rear facing ends of the connectors. Front facing connector ends are joined to outgoing fibers in the form of patch cords which pass through a storage facility in which each patch cord is disposed in its own storage region. A minimum bend radius channel through which the patch cords travel is movable in the tray to lessen the distance moved by patch cords as the tray is moved forwardly and rearwardly. This movable channel allows for excess fiber from within the tray during tray movement and without disturbing patch cord material outside the tray.
