Actually you don’t need a new caddy for this; I had similar issue, infact most of the old laptops will have this issue when upgrading from HDD to SSD; even though both are same form factors, there a very minor size difference in the caddy; you can just add a piece of paper with a cello tape and get the job done;

Well, I also thought the same thing, apparently there’s a very minor difference (some 1-2 mm size gap), that causes this issue in most laptop hdd to ssd upgradation; But anyways good that you got it working; I had to search online for 2-3 hours and trying to figure out only to find out this
