Hard drive rails

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am building a hard drive cage but the outsides of the cage will be inaccessible to remove screws holding the hard drives. Therefore i want to preinstall drive rails and then install rails on the hard drives so they can pull in/out as necessary.

Any idea where to buy sliding rails for hard drives?

Perhaps look for NZXT Zero HDD Rail replacement or something, my Zero has a great sliding HDD rail thing.

Thanks. However, seems they are only available through NZXT support or something, any other suggestions?

Perhaps dont build one with sliding rails and just build trays into the cage? So you can slide your HDDs in and out w/o the use of any peripherals.

I would show you a picture of mine in my Sunbeam Transformer case, but I'm at work.
