The invention relates to a heat sink (10, 60, 120, 150) having a body (12) which includes a channel-shaped mounting formation configured to hold an electronic unit (40) in the form of an LED strip captive therein. The channel-shaped mounting formation defines has a slot which includes a mouth (22) having a transverse width which is less than a width of the electronic unit (40), and a nook (30) which is configured to permit mounting of the electronic unit (40) to the heat sink by passing the electronic unit through the mouth (22) and angularly displacing the electronic unit (40) relative to the mounting formation of the body (12). Instead of sliding the LED strip into the slot, which could damage the strip or result in poor application of thermal paste, the strip is mounted by applying paste and angularly and transversely displacing the strip relative to the body.
