HD shield & bumpers?

#1 Post by hellosailor » Fri Jul 28, 2017 7:44 am

What do you call the sheet metal "shield" that screws onto a hard drive which is then placed in the computer or in the drive sled?

The little piece of sheet metal that attaches with four screws and gets capped with two rubber "bumpers" along the sides of the drive?

And once I know the right name for those...Anyone know a source to order a couple of sets, shield+screws+bumpers?

I want to set up my backup/primary clone drives so I can just pop them in and out, without screwing around (no pun intended) with all the trim when I do that. Either in the sled or in the primary bay itself, as the bootable drive.

On a W530.

Thanks! I haven't thought of drive "caddies" in a long time, before they were called UltraBays or sleds.
