Product works fine. The front plate has two tabs that hold it into the body of the reader, and one tab broke when I was removing the front panel of my case, making an adjustment during assembly. It should have held up a bit better.

Did not properly fit the case and the SD Card Reader that references this bracket was a very sloppy fit to the point it was very loose fit. Like throwing a hot dog down the hallway. Basura.
