Abstract

Print wheel container 11 is made of a single plastic molded part and contains an integral ring 13 extending downward from a hole in the top cover. The top cover hole provides visibility of the identifying information on the print wheel 15. The ring 13 prevents the print wheel 15 from coming off of its mounting pin 17 when the container is in a closed configuration, and acts to further prevent contamination of the print wheel 15.
