A need for a cleaning blade holder that offers a quick, easy assembly or blade change over by the field technical representative has existed for some time. Most cleaning blades are sandwiched between two pieces of metal, aligned and then tightened by several screws. This type of blade holder has a tendency to distort the blade's cleaning edge, resulting in a poor contact with the photoreceptor, thus, creating toner streaks and premature blade wear.
