Question 2.5" SSD enclosure that supports TRIM for large capacity drive?

I have a Samsung 8Tb 870 QVO SATA SSD that I use for transferring large numbers of large files. I've installed it in a couple of 2.5" USB 3.1 enclosures I have that both support TRIM when I put smaller (120Gb and 240Gb) SSDs in the enclosures, but when I put the 8Tb drive in either enclosure, it is only seen as an HDD, not an SSD, and so I can't TRIM it. At the moment I remove it from the enclosure I have it in about once a fortnight to connect it to a SATA cable in one of the PCs so that I can run TRIM on it.

Any suggestions on a 2.5" USB enclosure that correctly supports an SSD of this capacity?
