What is this called?

I am not a very good photographer tonight, darn it. Anyways I just bought an internal CD burner for an older PC I have but the drive did not come with the "sliders" on the side as you will see in this picture. The sliders slide the drive correctly into place so that it does not slide out of the case. Does anyone know the correct technological term for this "sliding piece" that I speak of? I need to buy another set or I cant get my DVD-ROM drive back in without it sliding right out. How annoying. Also any know-how of where to purchase them would be great, too.

Thanks so much

The part you are asking about is called a "Slide Guide"

the best way to get a set is to contact the
case maker IE: Gateway,Acer,HP,etc and see if thay might be able to send you to someone that has them...

the only other way to locate them is to find an
older computer repair shop --- most shops keep some on a shelf so they can fix the older units


Good Luck........
