  • Publication number: 20220379634
    Abstract: According to an example, a media roll support may comprise a sliding element movable along a guide, a hub to receive the media roll and a coupling plate. The hub may comprise an elastic element biased towards a first side of the media roll. The coupling plate may be attached to the hub and to the sliding element. Upon holding the media roll, a deformation of the elastic element may tilt the sliding element. The tilting of the sliding element may lock the sliding element movement, thereby preventing its movement.
