Akai cassette deck cassette compartment tape holder
Genuine original Akai cassette deck cassette compartment tape holder replacement part. This part is a critical part essential for normal operation and alignment of any inserted cassette tape used on the tape transport of these cassette decks, and useful for direct original manufacturer's part replacement for the compatible Akai cassette deck models, when the existing cassette compartment tape holder is lost, broken or critically damaged. This part was originally ordered and purchased directly from Akai Japan's parts department, when Akai's stock of this replacement part ran low.
The cassette compartment tape holder is a critical component for proper and safe operation of a Compact Cassette inserted into Akai cassette decks with which this part is compatible with. Through four separate cassette shell pressure clips (which are separate parts from the cassette holder part), the tape holder provides positive clamping pressure of the cassette shell against the physical reference points of the tape transport module in order to assure stable, accurate and repeatable tape path and azimuth and head tilt alignment relative to the tape surface during recording and playback modes. This tape holder is also critical to ensure the cassette shell is held firmly against the tape transport during all other tape travel modes to prevent fall out of the cassette shell from the tape transport during fast wind modes and during the cassette shell jolts occuring at the moment of tape pack braking from fast wind mode. The cassette deck cannot be safely operated without the essential tape holder in place.
This replacement part is to be mounted on the compatible Akai cassette deck's cassette transport module in conjunction with four cassette shell pressure clips separately obtained from the original cassette compartment tape holder. These four cassette shell pressure clips are separate replacement parts and are not included in this sale.
This cassette compartment tape holder has long been discontinued, is no longer available, and availability is extremely rare.
