PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The bracket has a very simple design. Basically, it holds one or two 2.5 drives securely on a tray, and the whole pack is then inserted into a standard 3.5 drive bay. Construction is plastic, but it feels pretty durable.
In order to fit two drives on the bracket, they are stacked on top of one another. This will come in handy for running a RAID 0 or RAID 1 array.
Two pins on each side hold the bracket in place when it's inserted into a drive bay. In the event the mounting holes inside the bay don't line up with the tabs on the bracket, the pins can be removed and screws can be used instead.
The front of the bracket features a swing out latch. Releasing this latch allows a drive to be inserted or removed, so let's continue on with installation.
