Let me see if i can dig around and find you a picture.. Basically its TSOP socket with a lid which locks the tsop into place. It has worked really well for me, i don't recall having trouble making the connection. http://www.missl.cs.umd.edu/~agnew/t23pictures/
You'll see the socket open and closed there. It's got a little latch you pry open with your finger to release the chip.

If you have a TSOP40, you will need to have the TSOP40 extracted and a "coffin" put in its place. For that, some of us have used Century Technology, Inc in San Fransisco (the guys name is Henry Ho, email@example.com) though i'm sure there are other places which will do it.
Just curious, what is a "coffin" socket? I have had some really bad luck with ET's zif socket for TSOPs. After a few insertions the traces start to lift, since there is nothing else mechanically holding it on the board but the tiny SM traces.
