Now put the circuit board in, carefully glue it in place. Note that I put a thin layer of sponge under the SSD (Cant see in the pictrue).

Nearly done. If you have a heatsink, now it's time to stick it onto the controller. For Samsung SSDs, The controller is a square piece in the middle of the PCB. Organize the wires so they do not go over the board.
Also make sure there's no short circuit anywhere. No LED pins touching, no metal parts touching the PCB.

The last step: put a small block of sponge on the PCB. This block should be big enough to push the PCB firmly after you put the bottom cover back, but also small enough so it doesn't apply too much force to the board.
Ariel already did that for me.

Use a washer to organize the wires if necessary.

Now put the bottom cover back and put the screws back in place.
Congratulations, you just made yourself a Shinki Cradle with some blazin' fast storage!

If you wanna make your cradle SSD looks better on your system, you can set custom icons and name. You can make your own icon file or use the icon I made.
Get it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ltfjh422za7i5hj/Cradle%20icons.zip?dl=0
If you're using Windows, do this:
1. Create a txt file in the root directory and rename it to "autorun.inf"
2. Place the icon file in the disk. Any directory is OK. I used placed it in Multi_Movable_System\Images.
3. Paste the following code in it:
[autorun]
icon=Multi_Movable_System\Images\Cradle.ico
*Change this to where you place your icon file. Do NOT include the drive letter!!
label=Cradle Memory
*Or any name you want. You can also just rename your disk but that has a limit of 11 characters. Autorun disk label has a limit of 64 characters and will override any existing disk label.
4. Save the document, unplug and replug your cradle.

It will look like this in the Windows Explorer:

Sorry for that died Dropbox link. Use this one instead: http://www.mediafire.com/file/ymid195c7z4o4g9/Cradle_icons.zip
If you're using a Mac, do this:
1. Right click ur drive->Get info.
2. Drag the icon file (*.icns) to the drive icon in the popup window. You might have to do this more than once because the custom icon sometimes magically disappears and reverts to the default icon upon unplugging and replugging (at least my computer has this problem).
3. Unfortunately there's no such thing called autorun in Mac OS. So if you want to set custom name, you'll have to just rename the disk and be limited to 11 characters.

It will look like this in the Finder:
