What's the best external enclosure for a potential dead MacBook Air in order to grab info off of?

Hey there, same question as above, are there any adapters (to USB, for example) out there to get back data from the hard drive with that proprietary pin connector in case the Mac is not operational anymore?

For all I know you may have found something by now but for anyone else who asks this question you can get an adapter to adapt it to a normal m.2 or nvme connection and then all you need to do is get a standard adapter which may be a little more useful for use with pc’s as well
