Mounting bracket for two 2,5" drives?

I am going to install one SSD and one HDD into my iMac. Is there a mounting bracket kit for this, or must I attach them with double-coated adhesive tape?

Tia,

the double coated tape should be enough to hold the SSD in place, you can refer to the ifixit guide for your model for an in depth instruction.

I should probably mention that I'm going to switch the original HDD for a 2,5". Ie, I'm going to keep the optical drive and have two 2,5" drives.

Is there a mounting bracket kit for this?
