Looking for the hard drive hardware to install 2nd hard drive

Product Name: HP ENVY 750se Desktop PC
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Phew! I can't believe I spent 90 minutes of my life at the HP website clicking around looking to get a part and ended up coming here.  LOL


I have a 2nd hard drive I want to install inside the mini tower.


I notice that the original hard drive is held in place by some kind of hardware that keeps the hard drive fastended securely in the hard drive slot. I don't know what it is called nor what the official HP name or product number is.


I just want to get it! How do I get it?


Thank you!

Slide your existing hard drive out and remove one of the HD "glide bolts" or some call the "glide screws". Take a photo of the screw and see if it matches up with these screws that are shown in this thread.
