Mac Hard Drive Jumper Question

I have a hard drive that I would like to use with other drives, but it is missing the jumper (plastic thing that lets you select cable select, master, etc.) How do I make another one?

I am not an expert on drives and please correct me if I am wrong. I think we don't need jumpers now a days. As, they are connected via SATA and they automatically gets detected as master or slave.
