Desktop PC card slot blanking plates


[link to this post]
 
Easy to get hold of these, providing you want them that at the bottom, non-screw, end they are flat and just fit inside the case.

However I'm looking for ones that at the bottom end have a small hook that in goes over both sides of the bottom of the aperture to secure the blanking plate in firmly.

I've got one in my PC though no idea where from. Need one or more others but can't seem to find them. They all seem to be like this example, some have a screw hole at the lower end. I'm looking for ones with a small hook arrangement as described.

Any ideas?

If it's what I'm thinking of they were used by one of the big box providers like Dell for a while. I'll dig out what I have tomorrow (If I still have them), up a pic and then if you like, send them to you if they're any good to you.

At least one, though more would be nice grin

I was walking past a PC shop in Ashbourne today and popped in to ask. He got a box of just those out from the workshop, asked how many I wanted, I said 3, he said put a donation in the charity box - there were two, 1 for the RNLI, 1 for a children's charity. So I did.

Nice way to handle PC build 'leftovers'.
