Hello,

My new SSD drive has no provision for latching the SATA cables. I read this is intentional. Does anyone have a jury rig?

Thanks

I heard the sandisk ssd's don't have latches for some reason.

Thx. I checked the ad - it says laptop or desktop. I guess on a laptop a latch is not necessary.

I see there are no notches in the SSD to match the SATA cable plug tabs.

My power cable fits tight enough - no latch needed. I have ordered a
SATA data cable without tabs. It is supposed to fit tight enough. Thanks for helping.
