Abstract

Disclosed is a hardware implementation to provide the required electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) grounding and shielding of disk access drive device (DASD) units when mounted into a personal computer (PC) chassis. The implementation uses support slides that are strategically located along with "Z" shaped snap lock type of retainers that provide a wiping action to ensure good grounding of the DASD units.
