Disk, which is the main parts of hard disk drive product, is packed in the box which will be called Disk Caddy and it will used to supply the hard disk drive manufacturing. The disk caddy will be open/close to take out the disk for production, but some contamination problem is happening with this opening/closing. The locking structure usually makes some particle. So the invention was born to prevent this contamination problem. We made shield at the edge of caddy not to make the particle which made by caddy opening/closing to the disk.
