I'm sticking with the genuine Amaray cases. I've actually picked up a
couple hundred of them to replace any cases that are not Amaray. I like the
fact that the outer edge of the disc is protected with a wall, preventing
the user from simply prying the disc out without pushing the hub. In
Canada, the Amaray bulk distributor is Kinwood in Toronto.

For any 2-disc sets, I replace any cases with a dual compartment case
similar to this:

I've found it works the best so far, as the user is forced to use the "lift
here" area at the top, as there's a wall around the disc. The hub clips are
not strong, so they break before the hub of a disc do. I'm happy to replace
a case rather than a disc.

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!
