Photoreceptors commonly used in xerographic systems typically have an unprotected outer surface which may be easily damaged by scratching or similar abrasive handling. As such damage may render the photoreceptor unusable, due to a print quality defect caused by the scratch, the present disclosure proposes a pad-like device that may be used with xerographic systems having rail-mounted photoreceptor belt modules.
