Hard Drive removal

Hi I am donating my old PC to charity and have taken the hard drive which I will retain

I noticed that the hard drive has a set of attachments on each side which allow the hard drive to sit securely in the hard drive metal housing (see pictures) - are these specific to the PC that the hard drive is originally from? if they are I will remove them and give them to the charity as well so they can install a new hard drive properly

Picture not working

some PCs come with HDD brakes / clips to make easy fitting withdrawal so I would leave the attachments with the machine.
