MacBook – Blanking plate for MacBook Pro optical bay

macbook pro

I've installed an SSD as my main drive, and installed an HDD in the optical bay with a caddy, however I would like to blank the optical bay with an aluminium panel or something which I would assume could just be pushed into the slot.

I can't find anything by searching for a blanking plate, so just wondering if they even exist?

  • I will not recommend you do this since it will degrade your wireless performance. The WiFi and bluetooth antennas are located just off the DVD slot to allow more signal to come out. Remember the MBP is a metal cage and wireless signals need a way to come out.
