    I have a new Lenovo 510a-15arr desktop tower that I want to put a Samsung 970 evo plus 500gb ssd into. I can see that it will plug into the motherboard but there is no way to secure once you do. is there an expansion bay adapter made that will fix my problem?

    You will need the correct screw to hold the drive in place, you usually get the screw with the motherboard.

    I think your motherboard has the correct type of socket for that NVMe SSD, so unless it's already being used you can simply connect it to that, no need for an adapter.

    it does have the socket on the motherboard but there is no way to secure it with a screw on the opposite end of the ssd m.2. that's why I think im going to have to buy an adapter and plug it into the pci-e x16 open slot on the board. why in the world Lenovo did not supply a way to secure the ssd is beyond me!

    Here's an example of how it may be mounted off of the edge of the motherboard:

    IOW, the screw that secures it fastens to the case instead of to the motherboard.
