BCM 450 Hard Drive Tray / Caddy Specs

BCM 450 Hard Drive Tray / Caddy Specs


I am looking for additional BCM 450 hard drive caddy units. The actual metal tray that the hard drive mounts into before sliding into the BFT.

Does anyone know a place where these can be purchased or a brand / part # for a good replacement?

I noticed the ones I have do have a part # on them but can't seem to locate anything even remotely close anywhere.

I've attached a picture of what I am talking about.

That's what I would like some for is to be able to add RAID.

Also from time to time when we purchase these out of service they are missing the hard drive and tray. People take out the hard drive and I'm sure throw the whole drive & caddy in the garbage as "security precautions" as if we would have any use for their info.


RE: BCM 450 Hard Drive Tray / Caddy Specs

I ended up using some 1/2" outlet screws in the bottom screw holes of the hard drive. That gives it the correct height to plug into the hard drive connector. I also inserted a 1" thick strip of foam rubber on the top of the hard drive to secure it in place. It ain't pretty, but it works.
