If that was the case, then the previous user was sloppy. In addition to 
that latch, you are also supposed to screw in four (I think it is) 
screws from the rail to the drive there too.

They should all be screwed... The latch is just an extra safety feature 
of the RL rail since it's so easy for it to come off the rails when the 
screws are out...
