In an example, a card retainer may include a latch to removably engage with a free end of an expansion card. Further, a card retainer may include a pivot mount to attach the latch to a system board of a computing device. In some examples, the latch is movable about the pivot mount between an open position and a closed position. The latch may exert a bias force on the free end of the expansion card in order to retain the expansion card to the system board in a secure manner when the latch is disposed in the closed position.
