Foreign objects, such as paper clips and staples, carried
into the development section of a xerographic machine can
cause drum damage, developer contamination, corotron
shorting, and related flaws in copy quality.

To prevent entry of such foreign matter, a guard is pro-
posed, either magnetic or mechanical in function, situated
adjacent to the developer housing to prevent the objects
from reaching the magnetic brushes or lip of the housing.
