    Different companies call them a lot of different names. mounting kit, mounting bracket, mounting adapter, bay converter, SSD adapter, etc.

    Any of those should return useful results

    wait they actually ship ssd's without a bracket? :O
    i used my spare one for target practice and still got a brand new one from my corsair drive incase i ever need it. (just a matter of some screws + mounting rails on it and done, got about 10 of those rails that came with my case)

    Yep. My retail-boxed Samsung 840 came with no bracket.

    Didn't need one as I bought it for my laptop anyway.

    You probably dont need any mounting brackets anyway. Most current cases have holes drilled into 3.5" drive bays where you can screw in 2.5" drives directly.

    Or you can use various DIY methods like two-sided tape. SSDs dont care about movement, vibration, heat or anything, so it's really not picky where you put it.

    If you pay extra for "desktop kit" you'll get those brackets. Bare drive (usually cheaper) comes without any extra mounting hardware.

    I'm going to be "that guy" and ask why you didn't just take the name of the item he linked, go to the Amazon US site, and then search on that rather than just post "oh, I need US not UK"? I did and it returned 4 items that all fit the bill.
