Could you give some more information? what drives are you working with etc?

It could be that the drive is placed on rails or secured from one side.

Hello a_ferret, Welcome to BC

They're actually very snug. Alienware case I had used them. No rattles..perhaps even a bit tough to pull out.
If meant how TO secure,than with the Flaps pointed away from drive at front.

Different designs are used. I've seen those that use bending of the plastic to hold the drives in place, and those that use sliding fasteners to get the studs to hold.

They all work very well - but I prefer the sliding one's because they seem to hold much firmer than the type that just bends to hold the drive in.
