    Car audio mounting frame/cage (DIN size)

    This is quite simple but i can't seem to find the answer...

    I have the head unit from my old car (Brand: FLI SWAT.5 - not a huge brand name so this may be why) and i left the frame/cage in the car for some reason. To fit this head unit in the new astra surely i'm going to need a cage. Where can i get a new cage from? I've only seen this in halfords:

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_165626

    and it only looks about half the depth of other ones i've seen , will it still work?

    Sorry for the terrible description but i can't think how to describe it

    Also, are they all the same? as i've noticed some have different patterns and once i tried to fit a head unit into a different cage (not from the same unit) and it didn't click in... not sure if this means i have to get a FLI cage which'd mean i have to order online i guess.

    Thanks,
    Sam

    To secure the radio properally only the correct cage from FLi will do.
