How can I test at high powers without pressing the diode?

I'm sorry if this has already been answered, but I could not locate the information easily.

What would be a good method to these 445nm diodes at high power levels like 1 watt, without pressing them into an aixiz housing or heatsink (and the obvious difficulty involved in removing them afterward)?

Obviously I can't just apply 1A to the bare diode due to the heat issue...

Thanks. I just ordered one of those from modwerx.

As I re-read my original post, I see that I managed to leave out an important word. It looks like it was understood though.
