Exactly. I recommend getting some double-sided duct tape from the hardware
store for this task, although so far I've managed replacements without it. And
BE GENTLE when detaching the old hard drive from the caddy! (If you're
forewarned and gentle, it isn't all that difficult to remove the drive without
damaging the caddy -- you just need to be aware of the tape.)
