I needed to fit a 3.5" card reader into the 5.25" optical drive bay (DVD/CD-ROM drive bay) in my computer, so I made this adapter/bracket.

You can fit the 3.5" device to the adapter with one or two screws on each side, or two screws underneath.

To secure the adapter in the bay, use one self-tapping screw on each side. Regular optical drive bay screws will probably also work OK.

Update: Version 2. More rigid. Made the screw holes for the 5.25" mounting a little bit narrower.
