Peripheral Component Interconnect Tail Stock Alignment Holes

      The disclosed solution solves the problem of peripheral
component interconnect (PCI) tailstocks overlapping each other during
installation when the spacing between tailstocks is at a minimum.

      The figure shows three PCI cards (6) loaded into frame (4) and
plugged into connector (7).  The figure also shows one PCI card (6)
that is partially loaded.  As PCI cards (6) are loaded into frames
(4), (features 2) on tailstocks (1) find (features 3) on frame (4).
This positions each tailstock (1) over each opening (5) such that the
tailstocks (1) no longer overlap each other as tailstocks (1) are
fastened to frame (4).
