Lol, Zac! ...you make me chuckle (in a good way).
gonX ~ I am in agreement. A think that I will try a simple pin-lock. I don't need it to be able to withstand too much abuse, just enough so that the drive-cage can be picked up and rotated 360-degrees without the HDD's sliding out.
I made a couple of small "J" catches that rotated on a pin, and that were held in the closed position by small springs that I pulled from pens, but the action was not very clean as the drives rubbed on the spring when loaded into the bay (test module). I considered trying another approach, but abandoned the idea as it was getting too wieldy considering that the darn thing is supposed to be "simple".
Oh well... next idea, please.
