Low-Cost Book Replacement

      A low-cost filler book design is disclosed.

      The filler book consists of two parts, a vertical plug 1 and a
baffle 2.  The plug provides a barrier for airflow, electromagnetic
interference (EMI), and safety between the vacant card slot and the
outside world.  The baffle allows controlling or eliminating airflow
through the vacant card slot.  Both parts are simple, snap-in parts
and do not require the use of tools for installation or removal.  No
assembly is required prior to installation into the system and no
disassembly necessary for recycling.  The functions of the two parts
are independent of each other so they may be used together or
separately as system requirements dictate.
