Abstract

Magnetic record 10 is held against movement during scanning by reciprocating read-write heads 11. Record 10 is selected by picking device 12 and moved upwardly into grooves 13 to present a selected record track 14 in alignment with reciprocating path P of heads 11. Record 10 is clamped without damage by the opposed clamping action of rubber-tipped clamping element 15, operated by magnet actuator 17, and element 16. The latter is fixed in a vertical plane that coincides with path P. Elements 15 and 16 apply opposed clamping force to record 10 immediately above path P. Element 15 is free to pivot about a vertical axis. Thus, slight misalignment of one clamping member does not prevent full clamp engagement of record 10.
