My Antec case has a standard hard drive cage at the bottom and front of the case.

I bought an SSD and a Rosewill adaptor. It's easy enough to put the SSD in the Rosewill, but the Rosewill no way fits into the standard hard drive cage - it's way too short and the screws don't begin to line up.

All the 'SSD adaptors' I see appear to be getting your SSD to fit into a floppy drive enclosure.

Any suggestions on an adaptor to put my SSD in a standard tube cage???????

Duct tape? :) I've also used velcro and adhesive tape. Sometimes it's possible to mount it with just one screw where you mount a normal 3.5" HDD.

SSDs weigh next to nothing and it doesn't take much to hold them in place. If you can align one screw in the drive cage, that'll do. Or, use velcro.
