HP 7908/7912 head locking

Hi everybody,

the information technology "museum" at Erlangen University (for which I work
part-time) will be aquiring two HP 1000 systems in the near future, an A600+
in a 16-slot cardcage with a "piano-seat" disk/tape unit (7912P) and an A700
in a big cabinet with rackmount storage (7908 and 7912). I'd really like to
have them arrive undamaged.

As noted in the archives, there should be a shipping lock on these drives
(see http://www.classiccmp.org/pipermail/cctech/2003-April/013531.html).
We've already received the documentation for the system, but obviously the
now important parts (Disc Drive Installation Manuals 07908-90902 and
07912-90902) are missing. Some Google activation brought up several sellers
of used drives along with a few classiccmp threads, but no online copy of
the manual.

Can somebody please tell me how to properly prepare the drives for
transport? From what I read here, they're not very reliable anyway, but one
doesn't need to make matters worse. They're in a building just across the
yard, but as I always need to coordinate three parties to do something
there, it would be best to know what to do *before* actually poking around
in the cabinets.

Your instructions (or redirections to web resources) will be sincerely
