SSD Hard Disk Mounting Adapter

In older PC cabinets the SSD mounting is impossible as there is no sizeable mounting bracket in the system.

In that case one has to keep the SSD loosely either on a HDD mounting area or just keeping it hanging.

In Amazon I found a nice solution. The mounting bracket for SSD is available. And the price is very cheap. It is made up of metal. There are 8 PC screws and it is very easy to install.
