    Bahh.. seems like a bit of a gimic to me.. how often would card popout during transportation from one house to another for a LAN partie?? Might be good for a car player though.. but I thought we were all trying to avoid cards.... anyway.. I think a properly installed card shouldn't REALLY pop out..

    might be good for a carplayer... i wonder why he posted it then?
    if you have to have cards, might aswell make them stay.

    A propely installed card? how many ways is there to mount it wrong, serious? you could also put a little bit of glue on the ends of the slots, as they are the most common places to loose up

    I don't know if these things would be much more effective than reusable toilet paper.

    I'm sure it provides a little bit of resistance.. but is it really a worthwhile thing? I doubt it.. your better off hitting it with a tack of hot glue or something.

    I agree with Shinkuno. In my plexiglass case there was no where to screw the cards down. I put a couple of drops of hot glue at the front and back base of each card and they stay in pretty well, even with heavy video and sound cables hanging off of them.

    I would think this would be fore the next step up from hot glue. Maybe useful if you were to use your box in an off-roading SUV/truck. I just remember some people posting problems about hitting bumps and exp. cards. Also was curious if anybody has used these.

    BTW: Thank you to whom put the block feature on the fourm.
