Hard-drive plastic carrier or caddy for XPS 8920

Where can I buy a hard-drive plastic carrier (or caddy) for a Dell XPS 8920? I have look everywhere (including Dell) and I cannot find the right one. Seems like Dell redesigned these carriers (or caddies) and the previous versions do not fit a new Dell XPS 8920.

Thanks.

You do not need a hard drive carrier or caddy for the XPS 8920. The hard drive cage can be removed and you install the hard drive into the cage with screws. See the service manual.

Yes, you can do that. But the manual also shows that you can use a carrier (pages 33-35) for easier HD swapping. The PC came with only one carrier, when there are two empty trays. Thanks for your input.
