How to firmly secure ExpressCard into Laptop

Last Updated: Sep 29, 2016 12:13PM PDT
Product: Ec34 and Ec54
 

Problem:
ExpressCard device pops out easily when the Laptop is moved.

 

Solution:
To  steadily and firmly secure the Expresscard device inside the expresscard slot  of a laptop use a Velcro tape strap
as shown from the picture below.


The problem is not related to Magma ExpressCard. This is a result of a poor mechanical design in the expresscardslot in the laptop itself.

There are laptops that have locking mechanism built inside the express card slot that holds the Expresscard firmly. Unfortunately, there are also more laptops out there that don't have this locking mechanism feature, in which causes problem such Expresscard device popping out when the laptop is slightly moved.
 
We have customers who suggested using a Velcro Tape strap to address this problem.


This is only an example photo showing where to apply the Velcro Tape Strap.
