Abstract

An improved print wheel mounting is provided. Two leaf-type springs 10, 12 are formed in a hub 14 of a print wheel 16. A lower protrusion 18 of the leaf springs 10, 12 lock into a groove 20, cut in a motor hub 22, upon installation of the print wheel 16 onto the motor hub. The print wheel 16 is removed by squeezing the top of the springs which rock on protrusions 24 to release the locked protrusions 18 of the springs from the groove 20 in the motor hub assembly.
