Wheel can be placed horizontal or vertical. You can even hang it on the wall, as a piece of art. After all it’s a Dutch Design Awards finalist! Everyone we tell about this flexibility is enthusiastic. And next, they ask: But how do we keep the record in place, can't it drop off? No. it can’t. To quote the Miniot engineering team: ‘We just nailed the record lock mechanism’. Their task was: Keep it simple and effective. And they did. To put the record on, you just click it locked by slightly pressing two fingers on the label of the record. Pressing the label again releases the record, and lifts it a few millimeters above the platter. This way it's very easy to grab the record. We love these basic solutions.
