    A project of mine needs a couple of USB-A (female) sockets (to accept USB pen drives, keyboards, mice etc.) and an SD socket (to accept an SD-memory card) with a USB connector of any kind -both which should be PCB mounted and easy to somehow fasten securely on to a 19" rack font panel, or fastened in some other manner inside the enclosure while still being accessible from the front panel.

    I would imagine eBay having small PCBs with mounting frames and the USB connectors or SD-card sockets soldered on but so far I haven't found anything. Maybe I've just used the wrong search-terms. Suggestions?

    Or you could go to a computer repair shop, and beg/buy one from an old stripped computer.

    Find a junk PCI USB extension board - they usually have 4 or 5 PCB-mounted sockets fitted. There are also PC back-plate-mounted USB sockets often found in motherboard kits so you can fit the 'extended' USB connections to the rear of PC cases.
