I overlooked something that explains my source of confusion regarding removal of the hot plug board. There are (at least) two different power supplies sold as ESP135:
PS-3601-1C which I have 2 of
DPS-600PB which TJinGuy has posted on his website. I believe akschu may be using these also

It seems the DPS-600PB has the metal bars that attach to the hot plug board connected to a pair of standoffs on the main board using a screw driven in from the top.

PS-3601-1C on the other hand has no standoffs. The metal bars are screwed in from the underside of the main board, and are also soldered to the main board on the top side. This means they probably can't be removed without pulling the whole main board out of the chassis. An alternative would be to cut the bars close to the main board and solder to what's left.

I'll post some pictures of the PS-3601-1C tomorrow.
