Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this This is an awful product, especially considering the price. I have a decent case which I'm certain is made to the right size, and these would just not fit. In the end I had to take a knife to them to trim them to size. Even then I found that the fixing holes weren't in the correct place. A complete waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! Don't know what happened to the other reviewer but mine was a perfect fit with all the screw holes lining up. Now my card reader/USB unit is fixed perfectly in place. Buy with confidence.
