    Well if you use a dustcover anyway. Head to your nearest Lowes home improvement, go to the blinds dept. and find this: Levolor part # 0334820 Roller Shade Hem Grip.
    It's a 4 1/2" wide clear plastic device that slip over the edge of your dustcover. It has a lip you can grab so you can lift the dustcover without touching it. No fingerprints! 0612181338_resized.jpg 0612181338a_resized.jpg 0612181338a_resized.jpg

    Clever Idea! Rebrand it and sell it in ebay for $9.99+$3.99 shipping :) I bet you would sell 100's, if not more! :thumbsup:

    Do the records sound different with the clip on or clip off?

    You know, I will have to experiment. Dustcover up, dustcover down, clip on, clip off...…
    Placement on front of dustcover or side . So many choices.

    There are a lot of combinations for your ABX test, you could also try it by flipping the gizmo upside down, now you have even more options :). Seriously, good idea you came up with!

    I actually have one of these on each of my records. I can put them on and off of the turntable and not worry about fingerprints on the record!

    OP clever idea though I am not so sure about the look.

    You could get them engraved with the Logo of the TT manufacturer and then sell them for $19.99 plus shipping! "As seen on TV"

    Ran out and tried it. Fantastic! Bass much more authoritative, trebles are clear as a bell. Human voices have both a warmth and clarity they've never had before. And all this with the dust cover OFF my turntable! What an amazing tweak!

    I use a soup spoon that I stole from a canteen at British Nuclear Fuels,not only is it the correct size to lift the cover,I can also cue up in the dark.

    I wish that the person I got my Dual 1229 from had seen these before they drilled two holes in the front of the dustcover and installed a cheesy drawer pull to lift it. :thumbsdown:

    You have to have one on each side of the dust cover to equally distribute the weight on the Dustcover hinges . DOUBLE YOUR SALES !!!

    Greatly reduces unwanted wow and flutter by avoiding physical contact with the table platter too. 'I cried when I first heard the improvement.' (Mr T, Arizona).

    Well, it's location should avoid the same fate as the "Opti-Grab".
