What you are *supposed* to do is screw the appropriate plate to the bottom of
each drive and then the "wings" on the plate slide in and hold the drive in

I cannot remember the arrangement for the 5.25" bay plastic mount - I think that 
with that one you actually screw the drive to the plastic, which then clips
into the box in the usual way.

I'm not sure if the expansion box is supposed to work the same way, but I'd run 
out of plastic mounts by then so I just used random metal worked screwed in as
