Logan,
We used the SecureCases for awhile, the cases themselves were wonderful and the discs had much less damage. It was the security strips that snapped into the the case locking it that were the problem. Our circulation staff never could get the hang of opening them and they were pretty easy to pry out with a flat screwdriver or penknife.

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!
