I have recently acquired seven Charlie Chaplin DVDs (released by Image Entertainment) with four more still on the way or backordered. All these discs (as was the custom with all Image titles at the time) are packaged in the unpopular Snapper case, and unfortunately the hub (which holds the disc in its place) of two of them was broken beyond repair!

I would like to know whether replacements for Snapper cases can be found anywhere. The thing is the Chaplin DVDs are effectively out-of-print so brand new copies of these discs are very hard to come by. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the same thing would not happen again with the new discs!

That's a good question. I got rid of a couple of Warner titles a long time back but I made sure I kept the snappers. I have yet to see them on sale anywhere.

Roderick, you must be mistaken. Snappers do not break during shipping. Their hubs are a marvel of modern technology.

You can always send it back to Warner. They will replace your case free of charge.
DigitalEyes.Com used to have replacements for sale, but that source has since dried up.

I got about 100 of them from a rentail store. Most swap them out with Keep Cases. Ask the manager to keep a few for you the next time they do. I've also seen them on Ebay from time to time for about $2 each.

Don't return them to Warner. Return them to Ivy Hill Corp., the company that makes them.

Remove the cardboard part of the snapper and keep it somewhere safe (the thin plastic strips at the top and bottom of the back of the case unsnap). Then send the plastic tray to:

Ivy Hill Corp.
