Would you like to try the THINpak DVD cases from Nexpak at
http://www.nexpak.com/? The hug is very good. We were looking at some DVD
cases with hubs with less damaging a few years ago. THINpak seems to serve
our purposes of non-abrasive hubs and save space. The hub is like the CD
cases hub. I am satisfied with them so far.

Subject: [Videolib] video cases with non-locking hubs


Hello,


Our library recently added DVDs to our A/V collection and we're looking to
purchase some replacement cases with non-locking hubs to deter disc breakage
caused by patrons trying to pry up the disc. Of the cases we're currently
using, the "Amaray" cases seem to be the best ones but we'd like to
eliminate push-button hubs and locking ones too if possible. The "Alpha"
style hubs seem to be causing the most problems, especially as they're on
many of the Disney releases and those circulate constantly.


Does anyone have any suggestions for a brand/supplier? I've spent about
four hours today looking through print and online catalogs but very few show
a good shot of the hub. I've heard that SecureCase might be a good one,
does anyone use that brand of case?


Thank you very much for your help!
