work well on following Sony models such as the Sony TC-366, TC-377,
TC-377-4, TC-560 / 560D, and likely others. Those need the ‘Sony
specific’ reel holders. If your Sony has a ‘Philips’ screw head in the
center / tip of the reel spindle, then you need the ones that were made
specifically for those Sony models and NOT these*, Tandberg models, 3BF, 4BF, Model

reel-reel tape decks that have standard reel spindles. Easy and
quick to take on and off.
Old, originals are invariable going to be 'slick' and / or have enlarged
holes that will not grip the spindle safely / sufficiently anymore.
We know as we have dozens of originals (a few of which are shown above),
none of which work well enough to use / trust anymore. Our new / fresh
ones are great to replace your old, dried out / cracked or lost ones.
These are new rubber and will grip well.
No, they're not simply the 'hardware store supply' stoppers.
Those are NOT the correct size or rubber consistency to modify, nor would the hole
diameter be correct.
pair including 'domestic / US' shipping'**
Additional pair add $14.50
'non-US' locations add $10.50 for shipping
your Sony has a ‘Philips’ screw head in the center / tip of the reel
spindle, then you need the ones that were made specifically for those
Sony models, then it's still best to use Sony
decks in horizontal mode unless you have the original Sony Rubber
as they are slightly different w/ a 'wire' clip
imbedded inside rubber. Again, the indicator that your deck needs these
is a Philips screw in the center / tip of the spindle. These stoppers will work with Sony's
when used in horizontal position and if you're
'attentive' while operating the deck, in the 'vertical' position as well.
