What are these two laptop hard-drive parts called (see the pic)?

I bought laptops with the HDD removed, and then the hard drives separately, but they needs to be fixated in the slot, and it looks like I need either one of these or both parts. But what are they? One HDD is already dead after I dropped the laptop and it swayed inside the slot, from the looks of it.

Update:

@abcame, which one of the two is 'caddy'?

Update 2:

It's a Lenovo, it has a side slot for 2.5" thin drives.

    what model laptop? every model is unique, and you need a caddy for that model.

    the left piece looks like it's from a server caddy, which is not the same as what you need.

    Caddy on the right.

    Retainer?

    If ever something like has to be replaced, it must be from the exact laptop model you have. Those parts are non-standard.

    If ever I encounter something like that, I use duct tape instead. ATM, my PC's SSD is just inserted somewhere inside the case. No caddy, no retaining bracket, no screw. I could be floating in there somewhere if ever it gets bored or something. Who knows?
