I'm reviewing a manual and they frequently use the term "plug-in" and
"unplug." For some reason, I'm uncomfortable with this term. There is no
style guide to refer to with this manual, so that's not an option.

Do any of you use these terms or do you use "insert" or "remove" or
something else instead?
