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 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Bought to house a Akasa 3 fan speed controller which I also purchase from Maplin. Matches the Corsair Carbide Spec - 02 case i have well. No longer used as I've upgraded to a Carbide 330R with its own fan controller and door!

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.

Where can I buy the blanking plate? This was not included in the packaging as stated!

Asked by: Adzz
Sorry we do not sell a 3.5" drive bay blank plate This bay is specifically designed to allow the mounting of a 3.5" drive such as a 3.5" Floppy LS 120 drive Zip drive 3.5" card reader into a 5 1/4" mounting slot of a PC case Typically the fascia of such a drive would butt right up to the aperture on the front of the plate, so no blanking plate would be required. I have looked at the packaging of the item here and there is no mention of a blanking plate at all. If you are trying to mount an internal 3.5" hard drive into a 5 1/4" bay then you would typically use
